A DOG NAMED LEAF — Book Review by Gary Foster

An insightful exploration of love in a time of great stress, February 6, 2013

By Gary Foster

This review is from: A Dog Named Leaf: The Hero from Heaven Who Saved My Life (Paperback)

I was greatly moved by this book. It is a gutsy move to expose one’s fears and feelings in a life or death situation. Maybe because I’m a guy, I’d be quite reluctant to reveal too much about something as scary and personal as the author’s experience, you know, stiff upper lip and all that.

The link with an abused rescue dog however, makes this more than just the tale of a personal journey. It provides a fascinating higher viewpoint to an already life changing experience. Facing a possible sudden death is enough to consume most people’s attention completely. Allen demonstrates the literally life giving effects of reaching out in a time of great stress to give love another soul when most of us would be totally, and not unreasonably, self absorbed.
