A Paw On My Heart

By Karen Petit

Can a dog cure a broken heart? See for yourself in this memoir of a disastrous marriage and its aftermath. In A Paw on My Heart -- A Tail of Divine and Canine Inspiration, Karen Petit turns from writing children's novels (the popular Ivy League Mystery Series) to a first-person account of spouse abuse, acrimonious divorce, and (though sometimes just barely) survival. It's a don't miss story, especially for readers who've been there. In the Columbia area, the author's books are available at the Three Dog Bakery; the Columbia Regional Visitors Center; and The Mitchell House and Gardens in Lexington.

$9.95, 164 pgs., ISBN 9780979442056
