Patron Saint of Lost Dogs
Nick Trout, a veterinarian, writes a delightful story for pet-lovers. Estranged from his father, the vet pathologist Dr. Mills, returns to his hometown after a fourteen year absence. His father's much beloved veterinary practice, which he has left his son, is now debt-ridden and about to be taken over by the bank. Dr. Mills had hoped to sell the business and flee back to his southern retreat, ignoring the past and its memories. Now he’s forced to either give up the business or make an effort to see patients in order to keep it at least temporarily afloat. That might involve getting too close for comfort.
Mr. Rosenblum Dreams in English by Natasha Solomons
Mr. Rosenblum is a Jewish refugee who fled to England from Germany before the outbreak of WWII. He longs to be accepted as a true Englishman. As a profitable businessman, he buys the correct Savile Row suit, a Jaguar, and shops at Fortnum & Mason. But his Jewish background prevents his membership into a golf club, for him the ultimate sign of an English gentleman. In desperation he decides to build his own golf course which proves to be a greater endeavor than anticipated. The character is exasperating at times, but heartwarming overall, especially when you learn the author is writing about her grandfather.
