Five stars each, recently posted to Amazon:
Srygley-Moore's ability to capture moments of just how jarring random
events are to a creature that doesn't comprehend, yet still remains
loyal to those who have varying degrees of concern, from love to just
something else to be processed, capture the heartbreak and confusion that
must have been felt by Horatio, Evy and the others. The empathy shown
at times make the tragedy of "if only" even more acute. We share so much
with them and denying that identification makes for the sadness - and
anger - that fuel the poet."

is a realistic poetry book about our world, parts of of it seen through
a dog lover's bond with a pitbull named Evy, who has to be euthanized
when Evy bites the author's 13 year old daughter's friend. The pitbull
was a rescue and all efforts of love are made to avoid the kill shelter.
Carolyn Srygley Moore finds through strong imagery that we are our own
saviors. The power of her own heart rides deep into both her own
childhood themes, past relationships and themes that correspond to her
advocacy to save dogs from murder who are genuinely adoptable. The
author will hit your heart. Expect to drop a tear or two on these pages."
