The Washington Post reviews WHEN HARRY MET MINNIE: A True Story of Love and Friendship by Martha Teichner

Book columnist for the Psychotherapy Networker and author of the memoir After Great Pain: A New Life Emerges, Diane Cole writes in her review “A ‘money pit’ dog, an ailing owner and one big question:

...Teichner presents the process by which the sentiments of love and attachment spring up and make themselves felt as being part of a natural progression, common to us all, regardless of which species we, or the objects of our devotion, belong to. ...From Carol and Harry, Teichner has learned that we all have the capacity to create and build new friendships and attachments at whatever age or stage of life. That such rewards are possible is the inspirational lesson for all the characters in — and readers of — this touching saga.

When Harry Met Minnie: A True Story of Love and Friendship is published by Celadon Books.
