The character of the dog is well developed and the reader truly senses Chance’s emotions at every stage of his life. The human characters are also well developed and believable. The author uses the dog’s power of perception to provide a detailed description of each setting, so the reader feels completely involved with the unfolding narrative. There is a lot of love in this story and a lot of learning for Chance, his humans, and the readers who follow his story. A lovely story from beginning to end. The reader will laugh and cry and cheer Chance along. Very uplifting.
I just finished this book and it is absolutely beautiful! I enjoyed getting to know the world through Chance's eyes. All of the characters are wonderful; I wish I could meet them in real life. This book is perfect for any animal lover!
I highly recommend Chance in a Lifetime by Jennifer Shenefield to families everywhere. Especially animal lovers! We have two furbabies here at home and this book has brought me closer to them! It’s a book our whole family enjoyed together.
Loved this book! I was so drawn into the characters that I read the entire book in one weekend! Chance and all of his friends and family are delightful. Given all of the negativity surrounding us on a daily basis, this book provides a little escape into a world where a special dog gives hope to special people. Highly recommend!
The best words I can use after finishing this book . . . human tears of joy!
