I love Jon Katz. I loved Soul of a Dog and I read his blog every day. What an inspiring man who isn't afraid of being honest.
However, I had a hard time with this book. I guess it was just too painful to read about the downed animals and enormous struggles of the live animals throughout the blizzard. I thought the blizzard would never end.
I also thought the ending was confusing. Didn't know if Rose died or not. In the last paragraph she was looking in the eyes of Sam's wife, who was dead.
I did think the novel was believable from the point of view of Rose. I liked that perspective and the insights into the dog point of view.
