Sintesi dell'editore

Here from #1 New YorkTimes best-selling author Danielle Steel is a charming love letter to the pet dogs that have enriched her life.

In this funny, lovely, moving memoir, Danielle Steel tells the story of how she met a dog the size of a mouse with a personality that could light up an entire room. From Minnie's arrival at home in San Francisco to clothes-shopping jaunts in Paris, her adventures provide the perfect backdrop for a heartfelt look at the magic that dogs bring to our lives and howthey become part of the family.

We meet Steel's childhood pug, James; and Elmer, the bassethound who was steadfastly at her side in her struggling days as a young writer. We also meet Sweet Pea - unveiled in a Tiffany box for a dog-loving husband - andall those lucky dogs who shared a household of nine children, other canines,and one potbellied pig. As Steel reflects on the beloved pets who have brought joy - and sometimes chaos - to her home through the years, she also shares her thoughts on the trials and tribulations of bringing a new dog into a household,the challenges of housebreaking and compatibility, and the losses we feel forever.

Filled with colorful characters (human and otherwise), delightful photographs, practical wisdom drawn from long experience, and brimming with warmth and insight on every page, Pure Joy is a love letter to this special relationship - and one of the most charming books yet fromthe incomparable Danielle Steel.

A Sweet Memoir

I found Danielle Steel's Pure Joy: The Dogs We Love to be a sweet, informative, and fun little story. The author talks about everything from how she acquired her pups, some helpful tips on training, with lots of information about the particular breeds she favors.

The anecdotes are interesting, and the narrator, Renée Raudman, does a fine job with it.

Pure Joy is just that! Pure Joy!

I adopted my first rescue dog! He is amazing and since then I only ever want to read about dogs! I have a black and white chihuahua mix! We are not world travelers but I too hand fed my puppy to entice him to eat! I love to read stories about how much people love their dogs! I love mine so much as well! He rescued me the day I rescued him! I love my Christmas Kringle Little Buddy the Elf (that is his name) I thank God for him everyday!

Joy XXL

It was a wonderful listen even if at this moment you do not have a dog but at some time in life you had. And that why not approach I just loved it! Yes to pleasing yourself at all times even before pleasing others.

Gem of a short listen

This was an absolute JOY to listen to. I truly enjoyed this short listen. I chuckled and laughed.. and at times felt like crying.

Immediately called my daughter and told her she MUST listen to this book. Thank you as I love my three dogs and they are indeed family!

Loved it from beginning to end

Great Book I really enjoyed it I have a long hair Chi Sadie that is 3.3 lbs and very cute and funny as well. It was nice hearing about all the other dogs, some that I have had and enjoyed and loved over my 69 yrs. The stories were funny and sad and full of love

The most wonderful book ever!

I loved this story so much on so many levels. I love animals & a story about dogs is delightful to me. The narrator was exactly perfectly right for this content with her warm voice that made it seem like the story was hers her life her experiences. I loved every single minute of it and would recommend it to everyone! Beautifully written and narrated٫ it was perfectly perfect!

Couldn't finish

Sadly this is the first book I have ever quit without finishing. I tried several times to listen- I love dogs and love Danielle Steele so I thought it would just be an enjoyable short listen. Wrong! The story just never got going and the narrator's voice is like nails on a chalkboard. I'm sure it's just a personal annoyance but I couldn't bear the way she pronounced her "S's"
Ugh! Not my cup of tea.
