Daily Review: Sarah & Zoey by Linda Watkins
June 18, 2018
From award-winning author, Linda Watkins, comes a story of two women, from different walks of life, and the one dog who loved them both.
A feature writer for the Boston Globe, Sarah Palmer had it all – a beautiful apartment, a great job, and a family she adored. A thousand miles away, Mindy Sue Watson didn’t have it so good. Trapped in a marriage to an abusive alcoholic, her only pleasure was in tossing a ball to a skinny dog she’d adopted from the local shelter.
Sarah & Zoey is the tale of these two women and the one remarkable dog who saved them both. It is a story of the power of unconditional love.

Three disparate lives – two human, one canine – whirl through a circle of circumstance that is poignant, involving, and especially moving to dog lovers who want a novella about crisis, escape, and recovery.
Sarah and Zoey can be read in short segments, so it’s perfect for busy fiction readers who want high drama packed into succinct chapters. The mechanics whereby loss and endangered lives heal are nicely portrayed in a winning story that emphasizes hope and offers an involving tale dog lovers will relish.

From a dramatic start, the plot transforms into a lovely story, beautifully written. “Sarah and Zoey: A Story About The Power of Unconditional Love” by Linda Watkins, is filled with emotion and incredibly drawn characters, including a remarkable dog.

By R. Robinson
Sarah and Zoey is a short heartwarming story about two women and a dog. Sarah is the grieving wife and mother from Boston, Mindy Sue is the abused woman from Georgia, and Zoey is the dog who saved them both.
The book is divided into short chapters alternating between the main characters and is a quick read. It deals with animal abuse, loss and grief, spousal abuse, and the “ good old boy” system of the rural south. If you love animals and want a heartwarming story where the dog doesn’t die in the end, this one is for you.
I want to thank the author for giving me a copy of this book. I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading more of her work.

This is a must-read for anyone who has had their life touched by the unselfish devotion of man’s best friend. A beautiful story of a dog who saved the lives of two women, years and hundreds of miles apart.
I couldn’t put this book down as I sat with my own two rescue dogs beside me and read this beautiful story of loss, love and renewed hope. I look into the eyes of my own doggie boys.
