A Three Dog Life - Abigail Thomas I find after reading this book that I cannot stop thinking about the strength of this woman following the devastating accident of her husband. I also admire the uninhibited way she shares the truthfulness of her feelings with the readers. Such a difficult subject for her to write about, and I feel that she accomplished it with grace. My family went through an awful period when my father suffered a massive stroke and was left severely disabled for five years, For me to read about the strength of this woman was bittersweet. It made me recall my mother's strength during this trying period of our lives, and helped me to understand better all that she went through. I can only say thank you to the author for sharing this gem with us.
