02 Kismet Book Touring review: Silas by Robert J. Duperre

We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults.  Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment. - George Eliot

Ken Lowery is a very unhappy man.  he finds no fulfillment in his job and is frustrated with how his marriage is turning out.  Ken's perspective,  however, changes when his wife brings home a Black Labrador  which she christens Silas. when Ken and Silas find themselves in pursuit of a dangerous and elusive serial killer, they embark on an adventure that will take them from this world to a parallel dimension where monsters lurk and nightmares are real.
author Robert J. Duperre's writing tugged at my heart, made my pulse race and brought tears to my eyes. for me,  this book was not just about marital difficulties, man-canine bonding and a trip to other realms. it was more than that. it is about living life, seizing the moment and being grateful for the little things  that are always taken for granted. it is about celebrating the joys, enduring the difficulties, moving on and becoming a better and happier person in the end.
if i were to compare this novel to a song, i would say this: it starts out with an unfamiliar tune, rises to a soulful melody, bursts into a haunting refrain and ends with a rousing chorus.

this story is remarkable, endearing, highly recommended and a keeper for me!

*Silas is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Indie Bound
