Peter and the Black Dog

A fellow Triond writer has recently published a new book. I wanted to share a review of that book with you as it looks to be a very interesting read. Louie Jerome, if you read this, I think this book is right up my alley and I hope to pick up a copy of my own in the very near future!

The Poignant Tale of a Little Girl and Her Amazing GiftLouie Jerome’s Peter and The Black Dog explores the emotional pain in a young girl’s heart as she discovers the amazing power of healing.

The five-year-old girl has a gift that she doesn’t quite understand.Others, including her parents, don’t understand that she is different and she learns to conceal it—from the physical world.She withdraws into an inner, spiritual world where her constant companions are Peter and a nameless black dog. At the age of seven, she has a life-changing meeting with a faith healer who teaches her that her gift is one that is very special indeed.As she grows older and begins to embrace her gift, she has a terrifying encounter with spirits from a darker realm. From this encounter, she learns that for good to exist, there must also be evil and for light to exist, there must be darkness.As she embarks on a quest to explore her own spirituality, her heart, mind, and soul are opened to the infinite wisdom of benevolent people and spirits who guide her toward a greater understanding of herself and the world around her.Peter and the Black Dog is an uplifting story that not only explores the wonders of faith, hope, and spirituality, but gives a profound and social commentary on accepting the differences of others.
