Desiree: The Music Of My Soul by Peggy Rose is a beautifully written memoir.

First off, if you are a dog lover you are going to absolutely love this book. Even if you are not exactly a dog parent but love animals in general and harbour love especially for sheltered or rescued animals this book will highly resonate with you. I was, personally speaking, completely blown to bits by this book because I am a big-time animal lover and dogs or cats, I love them more than humans, so reading about a rescued dog and how she changed her mum’s life was an emotional rollercoaster for me to say the least.

This is a very well-written, nicely put together memoir that was very engaging and relatable. I would recommend this book to all readers.
