Synopsis: (From K.A. Nuzum’s website)
In the snow-covered Colorado mountains, it’s coming on Christmas. But eleven-year-old Dessa Dean has just about given up on ever being happy again. Her hardworking father can’t possibly fill the huge hole in her heart that her mother’s tragic death has left. Mama was her teacher, protector, confidant, and closest friend. But then, when hope has just about run out, a dog – huge and fudge-colored from head to toe – bounds into Dessa Dean’s life, changing it forever.

  1. That sounds like a sweet book.

  2. It sounds and even looks so much like a book I should love! At this point in time it is Friday and I have not picked it up since Tuesday. I am having a tough time getting into this one.
