Katrina Kittle is the author of Traveling Light, Two Truths and a Lie, and The Kindness of Strangers, which received the Great Lakes book Award for Fiction. She lives in Dayton, Ohio.
My thoughts: Katrina Kittle is one of my favorite authors and The Blessings of the Animals did not disappoint me. If you're an animal lover then this books is for you. I loved that when Cami's marriage is falling apart she turns to the animals on her farm, which include several horses, dogs, a cat, a goat and a pregnant donkey. This book made me laugh and made me cry. This book made me think differently about the institution of marriage and what it truly takes to make a great marriage. I was really sad to read the last page, I wanted to know more. This book is going on my keeper shelf and I will be reading again.
