I  decided yesterday morning I was going to venture outside my comfort zone and read something outside my normal genre. I started with “Three Wishes” by Stephanie Bond. I must say it is quite a fun little read. I am about three quarters through it and it’s like I have found a whole new world. Everyday I look through hundreds of books and I only pick up ones for myself  from the same genres every time and that seems crazy to me. I was thinking of being adventurous and going with a horror. I’m nervous though, I get scared at every little noise in my house. Wish me luck!

I’m Listening With a Broken Ear

4.7 Out of 5 Stars (179 Reviews)
Genre: Crafts, Hobbies & Home | Parenting & Relationships

FREE for a limited time

I’m Listening With a Broken Ear is a true story about a dying dog, Honeybun, the author found on a roadside and grudgingly rescued. A concomitant story of faith, persistence, and love unfolds as both she and her young daughter struggled to help Honeybun overcome severe issues of compromised health, aggression and fear. Untrained to deal with the overwhelming behavior, Vicky then tried to give her up…. unsuccessfully.

Refusing to relinquish her to Animal Control who would undoubtedly euthanize Honeybun,Vicky tripped upon a small rescue organization who offered to help rehabilitate Honeybun for free. During the many months of heartache and struggle, and multiple near deadly attacks on Vicky’s other dog, she discovered a modern day parable of the truth that nothing is truly irredeemable. Each victory with the little rescue dog taught personal lessons in redemption and grace, patience and perseverance, and the power of transforming love to spread through a community in most unexpected and unlikely ways.

There were multiple failures, and repeated surrenders to hopelessness.Each time, her weakness was thwarted and overcome by unexpected help and miracles. In the process, Vicky came face to snout with the harsh reality that real compassion involved action and responsibility. If she wanted to save the dog, ultimately it was up to her.

It is a story of redemption, physically and spiritually in a very small corner of the world, told through the story of a discarded dog that no one wanted and no one thought could be saved.
