Book Review: "The Pug List"

The Pug List by Alison Hodgson is a true story about before and after, about learning to live well again after a traumatic event. In this case, the event was a devastating house fire set by an arsonist. Alison's family of five lost just about everything they owned except the clothes on their backs.

As Alison tells the story, she shares the lessons she learned along the way, giving relevant family history to help readers understand. She also shares her heart - what she was thinking and feeling and struggling with most as her family recovered from their ordeal and worked to rebuild their life.

Readers meet the pug about two-thirds of the way through the book and learn his role in this chapter of the family's story. Dog lovers will especially appreciate this part of the book. The rest of the book will encourage anyone living in an "after" situation. I received my complimentary eCopy of The Pug List from the publisher in exchange for this honest review.
