I read "Nop' s Trials" first and was impressed by how well the author told the story of a stolen and abused stockdog whose loving owner refused to quit searching for him. Given my love of that book, I expected "Nop' s Hope" to be a good read; I wasn't disappointed.
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.
