The scene is agreeable but somehow fainthearted. If we are to believe rural Missouri is so full of degenerates, we ought at least to say the same about Alabama, Maine, Saskatchewan and, Lord knows, the Hamptons. Those Trump voters are, to be sure, rather harder to portray. The suspense Allen builds through pages never lets up—except at the end of the novel, when one of the crazed evangelicals gets Elsie alone and threatens her with, well, God knows.
Elsie stabs him in the eye with a sharp pencil, and the world probably divides here, between those who cheer for this sort of melodrama and those who think the scene contrived and silly.

I write this with tears in my eyes, but such a shining example of goodness can only be remembered, in the end, with joy. A writer learns many things from a dog. A dog allows us to set free emotions we might not express in front of another human. A dog can show us qualities we may not find in another human.
Dogs teach us wisdom that feeds into our creative work, not only when we write about animals, but when we write about life. They teach us sorrow, they teach us hope, they teach us utter joy and blissful contentment. They teach us unconditional love and deep forgiveness. In the end, they teach us pain and they teach us acceptance.
I say thank you to each and every one of them, the easy and the challenging.

But especially to you, Zen. You sure lived up to the name I gave you. While enjoying her website, I learned this new-to-me author has written twenty novels for adults and young adults as well as a collection of short fiction. Her works of historical fantasy have been published around the world, and have won numerous awards. When not writing, Juliet is kept busy by her small tribe of elderly rescue dogs. Eight years ago, a two-pound kitten named Buddy adopted us.
He was on his own for the first 12 weeks of his life, and the memory of his feral days resurface whenever we go to the vet clinic. That vet deserves a medal or at least a lifetime supply of Betadine and Band-Aids. By humans, that is. Once, he landed in a yard owned by a pit bull. Is it any wonder we call him Buddy The Wonder Cat? We no longer let him watch any shows with lions, though, after he imitated their habit of dragging off their kill.
