The Blessings of the Animals
By: Katrina Kittle
Cami Anderson helps all creatures, great and small. That is her job as a Veterinarian, but it is also a life-long passion. Her husband and daughter are used to the motley strays she has brought home and nursed back to health. After one rescue mission, she comes home only to find that her husband has packed all of his things and announces the end to their marriage. While numb, she must not only face her family and friends, but also continue caring for the injured horse. Life doesn’t stop moving for Cami’s loved ones, as they all celebrate significant relationship milestones. Cami must learn to accept these events and move forward in life, with the help of her friends.
Katrina Kittle packs a powerful punch with this novel. This book shows the different human dynamics of friendship and balances that with the soul-healing connections with the animals. Told mostly through narrative, readers are taken on a journey through the important moments in each of the characters’ lives. The alternating points of view give readers an inside look into the emotions behind the characters’ actions. This is a wonderful book about friendship and compassion.
