Dogs of Meadowbrook
The place is ‘Meadowbrook’ - a five-acre former corn field surrounded by thirty-six acres of hardwoods, bordered by two creeks, in north-central North Carolina. The period is 1987-2001, with an introduction and flashbacks to as early as 1974. The characters are a pack of distinctive, engaging dogs who share an intimate relationship with a working couple that evolves to shape - and forever change – how their human partners live and ultimately pursue their lives.
This fast-moving biography focuses on a specific group of dogs, whose playfulness, inventiveness, loyalty and courage capture the hearts of their human partners, and the spirit of their home place. It is a story of how human and dog lives thoroughly intertwine as they share humor, tragedy, adventures, and love. Readers are immersed in the company of dogs, and come away with a renewed sense of purpose, joy and hope in everyday life.
