Yorkshire Pudding:

Love is a destination

Love, it seems, is transcendental. At least that's what Monique (“Momo”) and nine-year-old Tutor Moot think after discovering beautiful and serendipitous connections between their herd of Yorkshire terriers that they breed and sell, and the people the little terriers choose as their owners.

A comforting tale of life lessons, everlasting love, and evidence that nothing is ever happenstance, Yorkshire Pudding, set in 1969, is the year in a life of a mother-daughter duo that discovers their unique bond—both personally and through struggles of the era. Momo and Tutor together learn about themselves, their community, and society’s discriminations.

Yorkshire Pudding not only invites readers into the lives of a single eccentric mother and her precocious daughter, but also into the lives of a handful of very diverse neighbors, all of whom are changed forever when the Moot puppies come into their lives. Having lost her husband while pregnant with Tutor, Momo tries desperately to create a family for her expectant child. The dog breeding business has a lot more to offer than income, she soon finds out, as the loving disposition of their Yorkshire terriers fills the void of loss. A small neighborhood is the backdrop for six people longing for a second chance at life, happiness, and perhaps a little closure. When fate intervenes, each of them finds that an unexpected gift can be found in a most unusual reincarnated package, as a little puppy.

Yorkshire Pudding serves up a whimsical, celestial tale that will resonate with any reader who has ever loved a dog. Big on inspiration, this heavenly little story will melt the heart and bring sweet tears to the eyes of anyone who believes that dogs do smile and have souls—and it will make you smile the next time you see a dog wag its tail.

Loved this book! I completely embraced the adorable, precocious Tutor...and living childhood through her eyes, growing up as Momo's only child with Yorkshire Terriers as her siblings. The journey of each dog choosing its new family was incredibly touching, heart-warming, yet heart-breaking all at once. Ms. Myers' descriptive storytelling evoked deep emotion and created such a vivid environment that I could smell the fragrant flowers and taste the delicious foods as I delved into the world of the Moot family and their wonderful pups. As we are reminded through the characters in "Yorkshire Pudding," the love of a dog can be the best therapy in the world.
