Gloria Goldreich lives in Tuckahoe, NY.From Booklist:
Rochelle Weiss grew up with the undivided attention often bestowed on only children, made more intense by her parents' history as Holocaust survivors. Overjoyed to have survived, found love, and produced a child, Isaac and Lena Weiss' devotion to their daughter instills in her a supreme self-confidence, bolstered by her good looks and charm. Academic success comes easily to Rochelle, followed by professional success as a public-relations executive. But when her parents both are diagnosed with terminal cancer, Rochelle is fired when she requests a leave to care for them. Soon, Rochelle finds herself alone without the job (and the high-powered business-exec boyfriend) that so defined her. Needing money but without the desire to return to the callous PR world, she takes over two friends' dog-walking routes and finds herself sorting out her thoughts and her life while trekking across Manhattan with her canine clients. In lyrical prose, Goldreich offers a sad yet hopeful tale of a woman whose personal tragedy ultimately yields to greater self-awareness and deeper happiness. Beth Leistensnider
