To Dance With the White Dog - Terry Kay
4 stars

This was an impulsive Kindle bargain buy. I remembered the Hallmark movie and the bittersweet performances of Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy. Or maybe, I just remembered that it was the last time the two of them worked together before Tandy passed away. I was prepared to keep my box of tissues handy. The story begins as the elderly Sam Peek is grieving the death of his wife.

I was actually surprised that the story didn’t drip with sentiment although it was heartfelt. I loved the old man’s relationship with his mysterious white dog. There’s that touch of magical realism hovering around the fortuitous appearance (and disappearance) of the white dog. I enjoyed the way Sam Peak used the unusual dog to tease his daughters and mess with their overly solicitous caretaking. I liked the way this old man coped with his limitations, accepting that the end of life was near, but refusing to stop living.

I appreciated this book’s portrayal of profound grief. It’s a short book and the character’s grief is there in every sentence. But, he isn’t only grieving. He makes plans and sets goals for himself. He takes an interest in current events and reflects on his life. He visits old friends and enjoys his extended family. He takes comfort in that white dog. This book checked all my warm fuzzy boxes.

One of my top five books. Ever. ( )

Yep, this is a true story (although names have changed, numbers of children, and other facts). With such alternations, the writer only meant to celebrate its spirit. And that he has done . . . and a fantastic job, I must add.

‘Tis a story that is heartbreaking as well as heartfelt. Anytime one has lost a loved one our emotions weep with pain. This author has done a tremendous job in setting characterization and scenes. His skill of writing shines through his words on the pages.

If one has been through the journey, it’s easy to take this story and press it against their heart . . . simply because losses can be so Dearing and meaningful. It was so wonderful to read the inside pages of Sam’s diary that he kept on a daily basis. That too made it even more meaningful.

I’ve walked the journey so it was rather easy to embrace its message. And there is nothing more so heartbreaking! So whether you’ve been there or know someone who has walked the journey, this is a book you’d want to read and share with others. Author, Kay thanks so much for letting us (readers) inside your personal journey.
If you’ve looked at the reviews, it doesn’t amaze me the number of people that have read this book. Truly, it’s one to cherish! ( )

This book is dedicated with love to my sisters and brothers - 
Lula, Jean, Sara, Nell, Betty, Toombs, Patsy, Peggy, John and Gary - 
who saw the white dog dance; also
to the memory of our brother Thomas, who has been for me the hero of wonderful legends which exist inexplicably, yet vividly, in my imagination.
