The Dog Who Was There

Ron Marasco has presented an interesting twist on the story of the Jesus' crucifixion in the novel The Dog Who Was There. Barley is a dog who tells his story of living near and in Jerusalem. He has loving human companions but when tragedy occurs, Barley strikes out on his own. He meets Samid, a petty thief, and his friends. He learns of their struggles to survive and their take on the teacher from Galilee. Barley's encounter with Jesus as he walks to Golgotha as well as his thoughts on what he witnesses is moving. I particularly like the twist in the story as it ends. Very unexpected!!

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Litfuse Publicity Group and was under no obligation to post a review.
