Praise for The Thing Is:

"A story brimming with humor and heart, and an ending that's as unexpected as it is satisfying."
-- Claire Ashby, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the novel, When You Make it Home

"Great story! Unexpected, delightful, uniquely creative…Kathleen Gerard not only understands the canine brain, but she gets people too. The Thing Is reminds us of how intricate and interwoven relationships are—and Prozac teaches us about grace and unconditional love."
-- Melody Carlson, author of the novels, The Christmas Joy Ride, Finding Alice, and The Christmas Dog

"Everyone could use a little Prozac. Kathleen Gerard's heartwarming and uplifting book will have you heading to a pound as soon as you put the book down (if you can ever manage to do it). An absolute page turner, The Thing is provides all the proof you'll ever need that dogs are truly nothing less than Four Legged Angels."
-- Mary Curran Hackett, author of the novels, Proof of Heaven and Proof of Angels

"Kathleen Gerard captures the powers of caring, connection, and resilience in her wonderful novel, The Thing Is. Prozac, the book's funny and wise canine hero, helps humans of all ages overcome their losses and grief, find happiness and adventure, and renew their joy in love and life."
-- Susan Sipprelle, award-winning documentary filmmaker, Tree of Life Productions (Over 50 and Out of Work; Set for Life; Soldier On: Life After Deployment)

"A truly humorous twist on the issue of human frailty interacting with animal charm...offers a new take on grief recovery, which is both lighthearted and insightful!"
-- Trudie Barreras, Amazon "Vine Voice" Top Reviewer

"You don’t have to be a dog person to fall in love with The Thing Is. Funny and heartwarming, it’s a great read about love, loss, and what it means to be human."
-- Alessandra Harris, author of the novel, Blaming the Wind

"The Thing Is is, indeed, spirited in every way, and a reader need not love four legged creatures to love this story! It feels nothing short of delightful...Both main characters, human and canine alike, reveal their innermost thoughts...Along with an unpredictable ending, this is not your typical girl meets dog story."
-- Fern Ronay, author of the novel, Better in the Morning

"Kathleen Gerard is a sterling storyteller who held my heart in her hands from start to finish. I recommend The Thing Is to everyone who is a pet lover (or not) and to anyone who is grieving or facing the unknown. The Thing Is brings hope, happiness, and new beginnings. This is my BEST read this year...kudos to Ms. Gerard. You nailed it!"
-- Fresh Fiction (Pat Pascale, Book Reviewer)
