Emily And Einstein:A Novel Of Second Chances, by Linda Francis Lee
Synopsis: Emily Portman is an up-and-coming New York City editor whose life is everything she imagined it would be. She has a job she loves and a beautiful Upper West Side apartment with her husband, Sandy. But everything changes in one night when Sandy dies in a tragic accident, and soon Emily is stunned to discover that her marriage was made up of lies. Haunted by distorting memories of the man she lost, Emily's only comfort is a mysterious, scruffy dog named Einstein, who comes into her life at just the right moment--and stands by her side as she confronts her own past, and embarks on finding new and true love.
Thoughts: At first, I thought the book was going to be cheesy....her dead husband's spirit in the dog she decided to adopt. But it was actually much better written than I expected. Both of them are changed by their new life together, and he helps her to move on without him, while allowing himself to move on to eternity.
