“It has been years since I read anything by Pearson. When this book became available as a free ebook, I decided to try him again. So glad that I did.
This gem is a small glimpse into one man's ordinary life. This is the kind of book that shows that there is a story in everyone's existence. The story just has to find the right person to tell it.
On the surface there is not much to Donald Atwell's life. He doesn't seem to do much at all. But his relationship with his dog, Nova, and the people he associates with shows the reader that there is much more to him.
Pearson writes so well that the story is easy to read and feels like it was easy to write. Of course, that means a lot of hard work went into this novella.
I recommend this book to dog lovers, folks who enjoy the mountains of Virginia and all those whose lives appear simple on the surface.
We all have the depths of Donald Atwell, unfortunately Pearson will not be writing our stories. I am grateful that Pearson wrote this tale and I was able to read it.”
