God's creatures bringing love to a family
4 stars By Beth Doherty, Dec 23 2016
This is one of the loveliest books I have read this year, told with very intentional honesty. Alison Hodgson tells the story of how her family loses their house to arson, and their journey to rebuild over the following two years. She tells the story with beautiful imagery, so much so, it's easy to imagine the characters and surroundings at every point in the book. In a time of desperation and doubt, Alison is buoyed by the diary she finds of her young daughter Eden, who deals with the loss of the family home by saving up her pennies for her dream, a little pug. Lots of ups and downs follow, there is disappointment and joy, swings and roundabouts. Finally, a little pug called Oliver joins the family, bringing with him a character and way all of his own. This story is redemptive, hopeful and real.

A nice read
3 stars By Fuzzy, Aug 13 2016
I  enjoyed  the Pug list but  I was hoping for way more Pug.  
He didn't come into the story until about 23's of the way through. 
It was more about the fire and how they rebuilt after and how they coped with some of the 
symptoms of PTSD  
There was another girl who was with them when the fire broke out but she kinda disappeared
Having said all that I did really enjoyed it.
A good weekend read
