9781477625255: A Little Hair of the Dog

27 year old Andalusia Bixby is still reeling from the sudden death of her father, with whom she had lived all of her life. The young Mormon woman decides to go back home, to the small town of her childhood in Western New York on the banks of the Erie Canal. Being reunited with old friends and meeting new ones is just the injection of hope for a real future she needed. One thing she did not expect was that she would encounter a very special orphan, or that she would adopt him. He is two years old. His name is Henry. He weighs almost 200 pounds. He is an unusually large Great Dane. She has never had a dog-indeed, has never had so much as a hamster in her life. During her journey of learning how to be a good mother to her new dog, she meets someone else who needs her-a reclusive and bitter young man who has sworn off other people, permanently.

About the Author:

Jane McBride was born in Rochester, NY and grew up in a small town called Medina in Western New York in an old farm house. The house, barn and yard allowed for a constant flow and supply of all kinds of different animals who were cherished and loved to the elderly ends of their long lives. She joined The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1986 and served a mission to Oregon from 1990-91. She met her husband during that time and they now live in Taylorsville, UT with their two little boys and a whole bunch of animals. A Little Hair of the Dog is her first novel.

Review:

A Little Hair of the Dog is a wonderfully written, clean read that provides plenty of laughs, great characters, mystery, a budding romance, along with a nice glimpse of the Mormon faith. Anyone who enjoys a good fiction tale where a dog is one of the primary characters shouldn't miss this one.

Book Description Createspace. Paperback. Book Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. Paperback. 319 pages. When 27 year old Mormon Ann Bixby returns to the small town of her childhood after the death of her father, she has no idea that she is about to become a mother-to a 180 pound abandoned Great Dane-and a lifeline to a reclusive and bitter young man. The author wishes to include a short disclaimer-warning-caution-whatever you might call it-here at the beginning. I was raised in the area where this book is set. I know what the people sound like who live there. I spent many years listening to it, and I sound that way myself. Regional dialects include all kinds of things. It isnt just about how a word is pronounced, but also what word will be used, and the whole grammatical structure of a sentence will come into play. Many others have said it far better than I will here-but I love anything written in dialect. I want to hear the people, I want to know what they sound like, and I must assume everyone is like me because thats the way I write. If you are ever talking to me face-to-face and see me gazing at you with a sappy look, then you can bet its because I just love how you sound. If I ever put you into a book, I will do my best to re-create that sound. So, I will warn you now: if bad grammar grates on your nerves, if the appearance of written words slurred together bothers you a whole lot, if you believe that a person who habitually speaks with improper grammar will not have the sufficient intelligence to quote Keats or Shakespeare, then this is not the book for you. All of my characters use bad grammar some of the time, some of them use it most of the time, and many of the people from the area in question (Western New York) will join with those who dislike bad grammar. After all, lots of them dont speak that way. But most of my characters do, and it is not unusual at all in that area of the country. Mark Twain is the expert on this subject, and literary critic Lionel Twilling, speaking of Twain, summed it up best: He is the master of the style that escapes the fixity of the printed page, that sounds in our ears with the immediacy of the heard voice, the very voice of unpretentious truth.
