The Dog Share by Fiona Gibson
Suzy Medley is having a bad day…
… when a shabby terrier turns up at her door. Just like Suzy, Scout has been abandoned, although only Suzy has been left with a financial mess and a business in tatters thanks to her ex.
Suzy takes Scout in and her chaotic world changes in unexpected ways: strangers have never been more welcoming and her teenage kids can’t wait to come home to visit.
Then a chance encounter on a windy Hebridean beach makes things more complicated, because Suzy isn’t the only one who needs a friend.
Scout has plenty of love to go round… but does Suzy?
This book took me a little while to get into but when I did it swept me along. Scout was the reason - it's amazing how much better a dog can make you feel and to see the impact he had on the people whose lives he touched was simply delightful.
It was poignant and dealt with some relatively heavy subjects, and the tone wasn't comedic in any way, but it was nevertheless a lovely story and most definitely uplifting.
