This story paints a picture of the trust and communication between a stockdog and it's handler while also exploring the grieving process of a family who has lost loved ones.
Is this a story about dogs and the dog fancy? Yes. Is this a story about loss and grief and pain? Yes. Is this a story about the loss and redemption of hope and faith? Yes. Is this a marvelously written story? Absolutely.
It is not as good a story as "Nop's Trials", that is McCaig's best book, and truly one of the best dog stories ever written!
Trying to top, or even equal that effort, has to be a daunting task.
I have all of Donald McCaig's books that are related to Border Collies, and I can honestly say that I've enjoyed all of them.
I'd most likely, rate "Nop's Hope" higher, had I not read "Nop's Trials" first; which it is my favorite.
