My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Step inside The Dog Year and meet Dr. Lucy Peterman, a plastic surgeon struggling to navigate her life after losing her husband and unborn child. She copes by stealing hospital supplies and stockpiling them in her bedroom. Until she gets caught, and discovers she can’t continue through life without help from friends.
Peopled with realistic human characters, The Dog Year contains many life lessons and a generous dose of humor, tempered with just the right amount of sadness.
Ann Garvin just might become your new favorite author. I’m lucky enough to possess a copy of The Dog Year signed by Ann herself–if you have a chance to hear her speak, do it!
