This little gem of a book took me less than a day to read. It's a quick read, but not a light one; although it does skip lightly across current events and flashbacks. But the author does this not to avoid dwelling on the unpleasant, but to quickly dr ...more

“Well, he’s a dog. They don’t have an idea how the world’s supposed to be, so it doesn’t bother them when it isn’t.” Agnes frowned. “Except herding dogs, I think.
