Book review: 'Unsaid' by Neil Abramson
'Unsaid,' by Neil Abramson, is one of the most powerful, heartwarming, thought provoking, moving books we've read. It will make you dig deep into your relationships and understanding of all animals, whether they are your 'best friends' or the many species of four-leggers you may experience and encounter in your life.
Helene, a veterinarian and wife of David, a high powered attorney in New York, had escorted hundreds of animals to the 'other side.' But when she dies, she haunts and is haunted by the life she had to leave behind, including the myriad of rescues and the husband now charged with their care.
The story centers around Cindy, a chimpanzee who Helena helped teach sign language, and who may hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of animal communication and understanding. When David takes on the case to save Cindy much is learned and garnered about the value of life and the human/animal bond.
We highly recommend this book as part of your planned summer reads, you won't be disappointed!
Get the book on Amazon, hardcover $9.60, or for your Kindle for only $3.79.
