Publisher's Summary

A gripping family drama that brilliantly explores the relationship between a young girl and her dog - and the mysteries that lie within.
At the heart of this psychological suspense novel is the haunting depiction of a family's fall and the extraordinary gifted dog, Caity, who knows the truth. As the drama unfolds, Caity evolves from protector to savior, from scapegoat to prop, and eventually from avenger to survivor. She is an unselfish soul in a selfish world - and she is written with depth and grace by authors Ketchum and Mckee, who display a profound understanding of a dog's complex emotions. With her telling instincts and her capacity for joy and transformative love, Caity joins the pantheon of great dogs in contemporary literature.
Eleven-year-old actress Delia Cross is beautiful, talented, charismatic. A true a star in the making. Her days are a blur of hard work on set, auditions, and tutors. Her family - driven, pill­popping stage mother Pat; wastrel dad Bart; and introverted twin brother Robbie - depends on her for their upscale lifestyle. Delia in turn depends on Caity, her beloved ginger Queensland Heeler - and loyal friend - for the calming private space they share. Delia is on the verge of a professional breakthrough. But just as the contracts are about to be signed, there is a freak accident that puts Delia in the danger zone with only Caity to protect her.

Excellent Horror / Family Drama Tale

Would you listen to The Secret Life of Souls again? Why?

Yes It was a short sweet listen that will be easy for me to pick up again.

Any additional comments?

I've Read numerous books by Ketchum and have really enjoyed them. Particularly his novels that are more grounded in real life, like Red and The Girl Next Door. The Secret Life of Souls pulls a lot of the same strings. Not at all as brutal as some of Ketchum's writings but there are a few scenes that lay it all out there and they seam all the more horrific because the characters feel so real.

Miss Turner does an excellent job narrating the tale.

Delia and her dog Catie are fantastic. I Highly recommend this listen to horror lovers, drama lovers, or just dog lovers.

Annoying characters

I was looking forward to this book after reading the summary, but it didn't live up to the expectation. The characters are one dimensional and missing detail that could make them more real. Also, the storyline was easily anticipated.
