A non fiction book by

 
 
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.
