Book Review: A Dog's Purpose by W. Bruce Cameron

Title: A Dog's Purpose
Author: W. Bruce Cameron
Publisher: Pan Macmillan


W. Bruce Cameron’s ‘A Dog’s Purpose’ chronicles a dog's journey through several lives via reincarnation and how he looks for his purpose through each of his lives. The story is told from the canine’s perspective.
The protagonist is first born in a litter of four to a mother who lives in the wild away from humans. Their family is however captured. The dogs arrive at a place called the Yard, where dozens of abandoned dogs reside under the guidance of a gentle old woman whom the narrator calls Señora and who names the narrator “Toby.” Señora has made it her mission to care for strays. Unfortunately her facility is already overcrowded and may be closed down for good. With the arrival of Spike, an aggressive and vicious dog, things fall apart. Injured in a fight with Spike, Toby ends up in a pound where he is put down, but not before he’s begun to wonder what his purpose in life might be. 
Toby is reborn as a golden retriever who becomes the beloved pet of a boy named Ethan after some misadventure. Ethan names him “Bailey” and the two hit it off instantly. Bailey becomes accustomed to Ethan's school routine and the summer tradition of going to the Farm, where Ethan's grandparents live. Over the course of many years, Bailey lives a full life with Ethan and sees him through every up and down including his injury, an eventual break up with his girlfriend Hannah, and a divorce between his parents. By now Bailey has realized that his purpose is to comfort Ethan. Years later, with Bailey’s health at a decline, he is put down again by a vet.
To Bailey’s surprise, he is reborn as “Ellie,” a female dog who becomes the star of a K-9 unit until her trainer is wounded. Her new trainer, Maya, takes a liking for her and the two become a team. When Maya marries, Ellie carries the ring down the aisle as ring-bearer. Eventually, Ellie dies once again sure that she has finally fulfilled her purpose.
However, Ellie is born again, as a male Labrador retriever and is first named “Wendi” and later “Bear” by two different owners. One day Bear finds himself roaming in a familiar territory from several lifetimes ago.  He finds Ethan, now a lonely old man living on the family farm. Ethan takes him in and names him “Buddy,” who eventually reunites Ethan with his lost love Hannah.
“A Dog’s Purpose” is about the undying love and connection between man and his best friend. It also tries to explore, in a lighthearted and humorous manner, the concept of our individual purposes in life and why we are here. Dog lovers will lap up this appealing story right from its beguiling cover to the last page. Readers will probably need a tissue or two to get them through this emotional journey.

Where There's Faith (Fairfield Corners Book 3)

A past she can't remember. A love he can't forget.

After hitting rock bottom, Robert Newlin embraced sobriety and tried to live his life quietly and alone at his family’s lake cottage. Blaming himself for the accident that claimed his wife and unborn baby, he spent most of his time alone and grieving until Faith moved into the cottage next door.

Faith McMillan had no memory of her life before that day three years ago. The physical scars had faded but the emotional ones were still fresh and raw. Living rent-free seemed like a great way to finish her second book and would give her the time to figure out her next move. But then she met the reclusive guy next door.

Robbie and Faith – can two broken people who vowed to live their lives alone find happiness together?

Book Review: The Women of Baker Street by Michelle Birkby

Title: The Women of Baker Street
Author: Michelle Birkby
Publisher: Pan Macmillan


Michelle Birkby’s ‘The Women of Baker Street’ is the second installment in the Hudson and Watson investigation series. In this adventure series, Mrs Hudson, Holmes’ landlady and “a long-suffering woman” with her eccentric and irregular lodger and Mary Morstan, the first wife of Dr. Watson, step out into the spotlight. Given there isn't really much about their background in the original books, Birkby has meticulously woven a history, and a maiden name and a personality straight out of her own imagination for Mrs Hudson. Mary Watson née Morstan too gets her fair share of foreground.
The book opens with Mrs Hudson falling ill and rushed to a private ward at St Barts hospital, where there is an abnormally high death rate. Soon we are introduced to a truly eclectic and strange group of women who share the ward with Mrs. Hudson while she recuperates. None of these women in the ward are what they seem; Emma, Betty, Eleanor, Flo Bryson, Miranda Logan, and all have secrets they wish to hide. The ward is presided over by the mysterious Sister Ruth Bey, who is the night nurse. She spends all of her time at her desk, obsessively writing in a logbook, refusing to go near the patients. Mrs Hudson is driven to investigate, when she witnesses one of the deaths taking place, and discovers that it was murder.
Mary gets her own investigation to solve. Her case involves the “pale boys,” who may or may not be real. The boys are street children, either snatched from the street, from orphanages, or trained to kill. The two investigations run in tandem, before converging halfway through the novel. I was much impressed as to how two separate mysteries were handled by the author. Both were given roughly the same amount of focus, but at no point did I feel lost or found the telling lacking.  
However, this isn’t a standalone book. You will likely find yourself lost if you don’t read the first in the series, because while ‘Women of Baker Street’ has a much more straightforward narrative, it also refers to and relies on threads that were set up in ‘The House at Baker Street.’
Birkby knows how to write fun, feisty, and fully realized female protagonists. Her characters are their own persons with their own personality. The narrative is surefooted, lively, and inventive.  Finally, here’s a pastiche based on a promising idea.

About the Author

Michelle Birkby has always loved crime stories and read her first Sherlock Holmes book when she was thirteen. She was given a beautiful collection of all the short stories and has been hooked with the wonderful, gas-lit, atmospheric world of crime and adventure ever since. A few years ago Michelle was re-reading The Empty House and a blurred figure in the background suddenly came into focus. It became clear to her that Mrs Hudson was much more than a housekeeper to 221b and she’d always been fascinated by Mary Watson's character. So she set about giving the women of Baker Street voices and adventures of their own...The Women of Baker Street is the second book in the series, following The House at Baker Street.

I'd like to thank the publisher for letting me review the book. I do hope you end up liking the book when you read it. Thank you so much for stopping by, and happy reading!
