Jerusalem Gap – by T. R. Pearson – independent book review – Fiction

When a wealthy man’s recently-divorced caretaker meets an abandoned puppy – it isn’t exactly love at first sight. But it IS the start of a wonderful friendship. Awarded three stars on Goodreads.

jerusalemgapSet in rural Virginia, this is a short, simple story (140 pages) of the bonds that can develop between humans and canines. The author gives the caretaker a believable down-to-earth style of seeing the world, including a dry wit. The best parts of the book are those that focus on the relationship between man and dog.

Unfortunately, the author also adds what I considered an unnecessary storyline about a woman at a nearby retirement home. I wish he had stuck with the dog and master. That said, if you’re a dog lover, don’t miss this one.
