9781410494658: The Dog That Whispered (Thorndike Press Large Print Clean Reads)

Wilson Steele is a professor and Vietnam vet who likes living alone, insisting it’s too late to have a family. His mother disagrees. She impulsively adopts a rescue dog, and insists Thurman has whispered of grandchildren. Her retirement community’s ‘no pets’ policy forces Wilson to take the dog. Now he’s talking to neighbors on their walks, and spending time with a widowed mom of three . . . but not because Thurman encouraged him.

About the Author:

JIM KRAUS is a longtime writer and editor who has authored or co-authored more than 20 books, both fiction and nonfiction. Jim and his wife, novelist Terri Kraus, and one son, live in the Chicago area with a sweet miniature schnauzer and an ill-tempered Siberian cat.


Review:

Kraus makes Thurman's thoughts come to life in a way that is believable for a dog--altruistic, loyal, simplistic and honest. While the idea of a dog talking is obviously far-fetched, this novel is fun and hits on important issues, namely the mental health of veterans. The Dog That Whispered is a fast yet thought-provoking read.―RT Book Reviews

"Kraus, well known for his animal stories (The Dog That Saved Stewart Coolidge), charms fans again with his latest canine tale...This sweet novel is for readers who love tales of sentient pets, or just well-told, simple stories of redemption and forgiveness."―Publishers Weekly

"This novel is fun and hits on important issues, namely the mental health of veterans. The Dog That Whispered is a fast yet thought-provoking read."―RT Book Review on The Dog That Whispered

"...charming novel...."―Publishers Weekly on The Dog That Talked to God

"Kraus is good."―Publishers Weekly on The Cat That God Sent

"The Dog That Talked to God is a moving and powerful read, inspirational long after the last page has been turned."―New York Journal of Books on The Dog That Talked to God
