Detailed view for the Book: Tails of Love (Anthology)

Blurb: 
Ten all-new stories that celebrate our animal friends, by bestselling and award-winning authors.

From Seeing Eye dogs to the cat who cuddles in your lap, animals are there for us in more ways than we can count. Helping us get through the day with a wag of the tail and a tilt of the head, they let us know that someone is on our side -- no matter what. They also have an amazing ability to break down barriers between people; bringing families and loved ones closer, and giving strangers an excuse to strike up a conversation. In TAILS OF LOVE, each writer draws from her own unique perspective on our loyal friends -- exploring the many mysterious ways they bring love into our lives.

The group of talented authors in Tails of Love has put together a compilation of stories based on romance and their beloved animal friends. Some of the stories have the pets playing a more subdued role in the stories, which I prefer, while in others, the pets seem to be the real focus. Tails of Love is about people and their pets, and the compassion, healing, love, and strength they can bring into one's life.
