Heads up! I read a terrific new book, Chancey of the Maury River by Gigi Amateau. The author masterfully weaves abandonment, fear & neglect with hope, trust, growth , courage & unconditional love. This book grabs your heart & won't let go. Get out the hankies.
Warning: If you hate anthropomorphic books & think they are worse than head lice in a kindergarten, do not read this book. I repeat do not touch this book. You probably hated Black Beauty and Babe: The Gallant Pig. This is the best book to come along in a great while.
