Heart to Heart, Hand in Paw is a true tale of faith and the healing bonds of animals. Luanne’s story shares how our pets can love, comfort and teach us as we take our own journey through life.
Imagine my surprise when one of my bloggy friends asked me if I would consider reviewing her book. My love for my chickens assured her that I would enjoy her book~ and that I did.
This book is the story of her mother's life ( Luanne) and is dedicated to her. It was Luanne's dream to live a simple life. Much like our dream when we built Farming On Faith. They built their own home and learned to live off the land ~ filling their land with all sorts of critters. I couldn't help but laugh along the way while imaging some of the same things we faced building our own home. I loved hearing all the tales of the animals she adopted and helped along the way.
They soon realize that homesteading is not without its challenges for sure~ as Peggy put it so well.
- The dog has separation anxiety.
- The goose is afraid of water.
- There is a fox in the pigpen.
- There are raccoons in the hen house.
- And the truck has slide into the pond.
My favorite part is how the building did not get done as planned and Luanne ~ a teacher~ lived in a school bus through an entire winter -no less. What a women!
Luanne learned that through the bonds she formed with God's creatures she found healing. She shares how our pets can offer us love, comfort , healing and even teach us a lesson or two along our journey through this life.
