“I loved this novel primarily for its memoir-ish qualities. It was a delight to get into the protagonist’s head as she dealt with both the grief over a friend’s death and the life adjustments of inheriting his giant dog. It is very quiet and introspective. I love narrating this kind of meditative book.”—Hillary Huber
“Huber’s warm, wry narration keeps the listener engaged through diversions and flashbacks that make up this unusual, thought-provoking novel.”—AudioFile
“Hillary Huber takes on human and canine characters with mindful, measured narration…Huber equally matches Nunez’s unblinking, straightforward presentation, never devolving into despair.”—Library Journal
