In P.S., Megan McMorris collects these sentiments, as an anthology of unsent letters written by a range of women. For the friend who's been there for you through everything, the friend you've lost touch with, or the friend you've wished you could help, P.S. offers a chance to express the unspoken.A thought-provoking collection, P.S. is sure to resonate with women readers of all ages, from different walks of life.
They may be known as man's best friend, but as the writers in this poignant, funny, and dramatic collection know, there's no gender divide when it comes to canines. Whether walking down the street, gathering at the dog park, hitting the open road, or spending one too many nights together on the couch in front of the TV, a woman and her dog are an enduring pair. And there are many who consider their dogs to be members of their family and themselves to be full-fledged dog moms, even if they're single.From the family dog who takes on the anxiety of a family as the writer's sister battles breast cancer, to the compelling tale of a woman searching for her furry friend in the aftermath of September 11th, to the blind and deaf dog who teaches everyone about keeping on truckin' no matter what predicaments she gets into, the essays in this anthology get at the heart of love - and yes, sometimes love-hate-relationships women have with the dogs in their lives.
