Book Review: The Thing Is (Kathleen Gerard)

The Thing Is
By: Kathleen Gerard

Genre: Women's Fiction

Ever since the death of her fiancĂ©, Meredith Mancuso has shrunk from the world. Even with her successful writing career, she's not motivated to work. When her sister, Monica, begs for a favor, Meredith wants nothing more than to say no. But she’s ultimately roped into pet-sitting an orphaned Yorkshire terrier named Prozac. 

Blessed with spiritual wisdom and a high IQ, Prozac is an active pet therapy dog. To heal broken-hearted Meredith, he rallies his fan club at Evergreen Gardens, an independent living facility, where he visits each week. 

Prozac and the community of resilient older folks challenged by losses of their own propel Meredith, often against her will, back into the land of the living. Meredith learns that most people carry some sort of burden, but it's still possible to find meaning, purpose, and joy—and sometimes, even love—along the way.
**WE WERE GIVEN A FREE COPY OF THIS BOOK IN EXCHANGE FOR THE FOLLOWING HONEST REVIEW**

I know, without a doubt that this review will not do this book justice. The Thing Is is hands down one of the best books that I've ever read! It is a beautifully written inspirational story that will easily warm the heart of anyone who picks it up. I absolutely LOVED that some of the chapters were written by Prozac, the adorable Yorkshire terrier. It really offered some great insight into what he was really trying to achieve.

If you're looking for a book that'll make your heart happy, read this one. Prozac and Meredith's story is one that will brighten even the darkest of days.
