Seven Perfect Things

The novel follows the path of several protagonists: Elliott, a forty-something man who lost his loving wife recently; Abby, a very responsible 13 year old girl with an abusive father, and Mary, her mother. When Abby sees an adult throw a sack of something moving in the nearby river, she dives in and rescues seven adorable puppies. The shelter is full, so she finds a nearby empty shed to house them temporarily. It just so happens to be on property owned by Elliott. Caring for the puppies soothes Abby’s battered spirit, and she finds a kind soul in Elliott. This is a great read; while it deals with abuse, it balances the dark with the light, and proves that people are capable of change. I intend to read more by Catherine Ryan Hyde…
