Option Number: [2]

General fiction, mystery and romance titles that do not contain graphic violence, explicit sexuality or strong profanity. Full of encouragement, warmth and humor that you’d be comfortable giving to your grandmother!



Wilson Steele is a professor and Vietnam vet who likes living alone, insisting it’s too late to have a family. His mother disagrees. She impulsively adopts a rescue dog, and insists Thurman has whispered of grandchildren. Her retirement community’s ‘no pets’ policy forces Wilson to take the dog. Now he’s talking to neighbors on their walks, and spending time with a widowed mom of three . . . but not because Thurman encouraged him.


Customer Reviews

“This sweet novel is for readers who love tales of sentient pets, or just well-told, simple stories of redemption and forgiveness.”

— Publishers Weekly

“Kraus makes Thurman's thoughts come to life in a way that is believable for a dog altruistic, loyal, simplistic and honest. While the idea of a dog talking is obviously far-fetched, this novel is fun and hits on important issues, namely the mental health of veterans. The Dog That Whispered is a fast yet thought-provoking read.”
