Publisher's Summary

He was a man who didn’t deserve a second chance... but he needed one. Emily and her husband, Sandy Portman, seemed to live a gracious if busy life in an old-world, Upper West Side apartment in the famous Dakota building. But one night on the way to meet Emily, Sandy dies in a tragic accident. The funeral isn't even over before Emily learns she is on the verge of being evicted from their apartment. But worse than the possibility of losing her home, Emily is stunned when she discovers that her marriage was made up of lies.
Suddenly, Emily is forced on a journey to find out who her husband really was... all the while feeling that somehow he isn't really gone. And what if he isn't?
Angry, hurt, and sometimes betrayed by loving memories of the man she lost, Emily finds comfort in a scruffy dog named Einstein. But is Einstein's seemingly odd determination that she save herself enough to make Emily confront her own past? Can he help her find a future - even after she meets a new man?

Well-written, kept my attention

This is no Devil in the Junior League, nothing like that, which I loved, loved, and have been checking back to see when Ms. Lee would put something else out. I have listened and/or read her other books, so used one of my credits on this book. I think, myself, of having no knowledge of how a book is published, what editors do, et cetera, was one of the most interesting points of this book, i.e., getting a "good" book supported. Really and truly, enjoyable listen, good story.

All kinds of things woven in the relationships among the characters in this book.

Thought Provoking

Would you listen to Emily and Einstein again? Why?

I have so many titles in my library and perhaps I should go back and begin to listen to them all again. Would this be on the top of my begin again list? Well no, it isn't "The Pillars Of The Earth", but I truly enjoyed the many layers of this book.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Emily and Einstein?

When the dog was telling his part of the story.

Which scene was your favorite?

Each time Einstein the dog had to "reevaluate" his thinking in order to "not fade away."

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Being an extreme dog lover, it made me both laugh and cry. The idea that a man in a dog's body can better understand his human nature and fix his flaws is genius!
