Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A man who doesnt deserve a second chance. A woman who finds one where she least expects it. And the lovable dog named Einstein who shows them the way…

 

Emily Portman is an up-and-coming New York City editor whose life is everything she imagined it would be. She has a job she loves and a beautiful Upper West Side apartment with her husband, Sandy. But everything changes in one night, when Sandy dies in a tragic accident, and Emily is stunned to discover that her marriage was made up of lies. Suddenly, she is forced on a journey to find out who her husband really was . . . all the while feeling that somehow he isn't really gone.  Angry, hurt, and sometimes betrayed by loving memories of the man she lost, Emilys only comfort is a mysterious, scruffy dog named Einstein, who comes into her life at just the right moment - and stands by her side as she uncovers surprising truths about Sandy and her own family.

But is Einstein's seemingly odd determination that she save herself enough to make Emily confront her past?  And when a new man arrives at her apartment, can she allow love through the door?  Linda Francis Lees Emily and Einstein is a heartwarming novel about truth, love, and second chances that has captivated readers and critics alike.

Review:

"Lee (The Devil in Junior League) returns with a quick yet extremely predictable story of betrayal and atonement. Sandy Portman and Emily Barlow seem to lead a perfect life. Sandy is a successful businessman from an old-money family, and Emily, beautiful and smart, is quickly gaining respect in her career as a book editor. But Sandy is keeping a few secrets from Emily, and is hit by a car and killed before he has a chance to reveal the truth. In a Dickensian turn of events, he's given an otherworldly chance to make amends as a dog named Einstein. Emily adopts Einstein and he bears witness as she discovers Sandy's former duplicity, causing her life to fall apart and leaving Einstein to figure out how to save her so that he can save himself. These turns of events also reveal the novel's most frustrating aspect: an utter lack of surprise. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright PWyxz LLC)
