The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances, by Ellen Cooney

The Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances, by Ellen CooneyThe Mountaintop School for Dogs and Other Second Chances, was a wonderful audiobook to listen too.  The narrator had just the right tone for the story, calming while Evie discovers her own inner strengths and weaknesses as she encounters each dog in a unique situation.  Not much information is given about the school or Evie, but each dog is given an information sheet with crucial back stories.  The protagonist learns about the dogs, and reveals little snippets about her past history as she ruminates about how best to heal and reach the dogs.  As Evie discovers more about each dog, she writes a thoughtful dictionary on dog words, providing her own discoveries and perspective.  This is an introspective story without much action, but a must if you are intrigued by human the psyche, or just love dogs.
