Can a dog mend a broken heart?
When a stray dog walks into a sleepy Chiltern village, she touches the lives of many people there, but can she help the recently widowed Alfie Ellis, who has been living a kind of half life since the loss of his wife of 43 years?
A Dog Called Hope is a touching and heartwarming novella of 49 pages from the best-selling author of A Weekend with Mr. Darcy and Wish You Were Here.

Really enjoyed this little story. The narrator was very clear and easy to understand and her voice was likeable. A wonderful story of an abandoned dog bringing new hope to a grieving family. Enjoying listening to audio books, it's relaxing and entertaining at the same time. Would recommend this audiobook for all ages even young adults who sometimes struggle to pick a book up.
loved it but just as I was getting into it and it was the end what a shame the author couldn't have made I chapters a little longer
Not at the top and not at the bottom, about in the middle.
When Hope puts her head on Dad's knee and let's him know she is there for him.
I enjoy Ms Connelly's work as a rule and this was no exception. It is a short listen and can be scoffed in an hour or so.
I really liked the way the love story this time involved a man and a dog rather than a man and a woman. I also enjoyed the depiction of Alfie's home and village. It made me want to walk along the riverbank with him. Alfie and Hope are both such lovable characters.
I recommend this story for a relaxing hour of escapism (especially if you love animals)
