  • I absoluetely loved this book !!!

    Ahhhhh- Not only was this a beautiful cover, but a truly poignant story written on the pages between……so moving and emotionally stirring! Casey Wilson has written a totally heart and gut wrenching novel with “A Dog’s Hope”. Buddy was such a loyal companion to Toby and is with him through it all. I loved watching their relationship grow. I read the last couple chapters through tears as it touched me very deeply. I absolutely recommend this page turner! You will not want to put it down! I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for fair and honest review.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • Heartwarming story

    A Dog's Hope is an endearing, heartwarming and poignant story about the special bond between a boy and his dog. Toby is a teenager, floundering in a new town, when Buddy finds him, creating a relationship between boy and dog that is so very special. Their interactions, their loyalty and devotion to each other, brought tears to my eyes. I loved that the story is sometimes told from Buddy's point of view--don't we all wonder what our dogs and pets are thinking about? This wonderful story of hope, healing, trust, and friendship will touch your heart.

  • Wonderful book

    Dogs are incredible creatures. Their soulful eyes can melt your heart, and their playful demeanor can entertain for days. I was drawn into A Dog's Hope by Casey Wilson from its cover and synopsis. Once I began reading, I couldn't put the book down. A Dog's Hope is a heartwarming journey between a young boy and an abandoned dog. The book goes back and forth between Now and Then, through the perspective of both the dog and Toby, the main character. Toby is the son of a military man who has had to move often, and he lands at a new school once again. He has struggled in the past with controlling his emotions and is hoping for a fresh start in a new location and school. While unpacking, a dog spots Toby and feels an instant connection with him. The author does a beautiful job of describing the relationship and loyalty the dog, Buddy, has for Toby. The story is both heartbreaking and heartwarming, and the book captures the relationship between Toby and Buddy growing together and being inseparable. The book provides a glimpse into the thoughts and feelings from a dog's perspective and how we can learn from each other. The title of the book is very accurate: An unputdownable, heartwarming, and emotional page-turner. A Dog's Hope is a great read and one book to put on your shelf. #ADogsHope #NetGalley @bookouture

  • Heartwarming with 😪 tragic notes

    Heartwarming with 😪 tragic notes: a best book about best friends🐕 4.5-5🌟 stars Keep hold of your tissue box for this one! Toby goes through some rough times and Buddy, the stray who adopts him, remains loyally present through the joys and sorrows of adjusting to a new town, estrangement from his father, delight in a new sport, young love, tragic loss and rebuilding his purpose and future in the aftermath. The story is full of emotional highs and lows, and a companion canine that keeps pulling Toby back to focus on living his present to the fullest measure. Author Casey Wilson does a superb job evoking the scent, sights and feel of Riverside, the small town where Toby and his mother settle after his parents' divorce. Buddy and Toby's times together are lovingly described. The story is told alternating point of view between Toby and Buddy and, for me, this produces the only jarring note. The dog's thoughts are so detailed, often psychoanalytical, that they seem more the musings of a well-educated human than a dog! I understand the rationale for giving Buddy such a complex vision of his friend and their world, but it just felt a bit off at times. What made this story stand out was its emotional depth. I was truly wrapped up in the drama of Toby's life, Buddy's unswerving devotion, and the tension created by Buddy's loyal vigil through rain and shine waiting for a return when Toby's family have all but abandoned hope. Thanks to publisher Bookouture and NetGalley for providing a complimentary advance copy of the book; this is my voluntary and honest review.

  • Heartwarming

    Casey Wilson's novel A Dog's Hope had me crying at page one. It evoked tears a few more times through the book and I had a great big ugly cry. Anyone who has ever owned that one special dog that comes along once in a lifetime will totally understand this book. Toby and his friend Buddy were indeed special. Buddy was a rescued dog that understands he has been united with someone who loves and needs him. Buddy unselfishly returns that love. Toby's parents have split up and along with Buddy he finds a love of baseball, his first love and a couple of lifelong friends at his news school. This story fills your heart and empties your tear ducts. It is such an emotional book with many ups and downs and life lessons. Just like our own lives. Every penny you spend and every moment it takes you to read A Dog's Hope is money and time we'll spent. Thank you Casey Wilson for a beautiful story! I received this book from thes author for a fair and honest review.
