Elisabeth Rose is a first-class storyteller. I was hooked on this book from the opening when a 12 year-old girl wants to know if her dog went to heaven. From that point the narrative takes off and sweeps you along. I must admit I am about as far from the category dog lover as anyone can be but I was so taken with the story here and the lives and how her dogs, and other animals, integrated into her life.

Through battling daily challenges and constantly regrouping, Amanda realises she is starting to come to terms with her bereavement and the prospect of facing the rest of her life alone. For the Love of a Dog tells the bigger, more poignant story about the labour of emotional recovery after the trauma of loss. Mabel shines like a light throughout, the unwitting architect of rebuilding self-belief. Mabel's own journey is equally captivating: as she blossoms into a mischievous, endearing head-turner of a companion – as affectionate as she is glorious.
For the Love of a Dog: A Memoir (2001). During the course of the book, she describes the unusual communion that humans have with their animal companions.
