Emily & Einstien

Sometimes you just want to read a great story.  Nothing too deep but not "fluffy" either.  "Fluffy?" you say.  Yes, you know the type of book, like a show on tv and when your finished you say to yourself "what did I just watch", something of no redeeming value and a waste of time. 

Emily and Einstien is a good book for times when you just want a good read.  I loved some of the quotes and enjoyed Emily's journey with her dead husband, I mean dog, named Einstien. 

Below is the synopsis, after reading the book , post a comment, I'd love to know your thoughts.

He was a man who didn’t deserve a second chance. But he needed one…

Emily and her husband Sandy Portman seemed to live a gracious if busy life in an old-world, Upper West Side apartment in the famous Dakota building.  But one night on the way to meet Emily, Sandy dies in a tragic accident.  The funeral isn't even over before Emily learns she is on the verge of being evicted from their apartment.  But worse than the possibility of losing her home, Emily is stunned when she discovers that her marriage was made up of lies. 
Suddenly Emily is forced on a journey to find out who her husband really was . . . all the while feeling that somehow he isn't really gone.  Angry, hurt, and sometimes betrayed by loving memories of the man she lost, Emily finds comfort in a scruffy dog named Einstein.  But is Einstein's seemingly odd determination that she save herself enough to make Emily confront her own past?  Can he help her find a future—even after she meets a new man?
