Forsyth Reads Together

I participated in the Forsyth Reads Together program for the first time last year.  The featured title was Little Women by Louisa May Alcott.  I grew up near Concord, MA where the author and her family lived.  It was great to share the enjoyment of reading her book and learning about her history with others.

I have read To Dance with the White Dog and found it to be a wonderful read.  The main character is an older man who had recently lost his wife, and his children worry about how he will get along without her.  The story covers the loss of a loved one and family relations with compassion and humor.  The addition of the “white dog” adds a little mystery to the story while being a comfort to the main character.
