Book Description: Seventy years ago, a collie mix brings two hearts together in war torn Italy. Will their story help their grandson find his own Christmas love?
My thoughts: To me this book was about overcoming fear. Fear of the unknown, taking a chance, opening you heart, making life changes. The book looks at two different love stories. The first is of Katie and Dominic. Their future is unclear when he botches his proposal by telling her he is going to Italy to bring his Grandmother to live with him. The second is the grandparents love story told in Italy during WWII.
In both stories the young women have figure out if their love for their young men is enough to sustain them through uncertainties. Katie comes from an emotionally detached family and is not sure she is ready for the big hugging Italian family. She doesn't know if Dominic's grandmother is a lady she can get along with and is hesitant to accept his proposal.
I enjoyed reading this book. It is short and can be read quickly.
