One of the best books i have ever read. Sep 18, Kendra Nielson rated it really liked it. One weird part on ancient practices, but other than that it had thought provoking questions and interesting concepts. Definitely a book to talk about with friends.

What Road is This: One Black Womans Journey to Herself
It's one that I would keep in my collection to return to whenever I need to be reminded of the sacredness and power of women's mysteries. Feb 22, Heidi rated it really liked it. Duerk provides wonderful writing prompts that encourage a link to the feminine whole that is lacking for me. Jan 15, Ellen rated it really liked it. Lent to me by Virginia Lee - wonderful view of women, femininity and wishing for a different way of mentoring and being mentored. Will share some things from this with my women's group.

Beautiful, powerful and emotional. Sep 14, Denise rated it it was amazing. I attempted reading this book years ago and didn't get very far. I think it was because I had not begun to consciously experience my own truth or Eternal Feminine at that time. My wonderful husband's interest and support has always made the time possible for me to slow down, find MY truth and be as I mixed the traditional and sometimes the unorthodox of what being a woman means to me.
This reading flew by and so much resonated. Nearly gone are the days of the moon lodge, mentoring by older women I attempted reading this book years ago and didn't get very far. Nearly gone are the days of the moon lodge, mentoring by older women and often even the time to think.
Maybe we need to re examine that. May 04, Karyn Wynne rated it liked it. At first glance I thought it might be a little too kumbaya for me, and in fact, in some places it is. Overall, the thoughts it started in my head are fabulous about women and how we learn from each other and the importance of learning from each other's wisdom. No longer allowing herself to be a doormat and looking for love with all the wrong men. Atticus along with Oley become the main focus of her life. As the story progresses, she ends up with a good job, a nice apartment of her own, and a couple of old men who become secondary father figures to her.
She is finally putting herself first and things are falling into place nicely for her. There is basically no steam in this story and honestly, I think it would have been out of place if it was. By the time I got to the end of this book, I felt like she was a good friend. Keep that box of Kleenex handy. Here are my overall ratings Atticus: From the moment she came into my life she's had me wrapped around her little paw and I wouldn't have it any other way!! View all 10 comments. Atticus took me by complete surprise though because while it was those things, it was so much more than I could have ever expected.
Atticus is definitely worthy of having his own book. He has lived a life worth sharing and has a story worth telling. I am always very wary of reading stories or watching movies for that matter centred on animals.
I always end up crying my eyes out, feeling depressed and incredibly sad. It was a hilarious and heart-warming story about unconditional love and also that maybe not all hope is lost. Hazel is a high school drop-out turned bartender, whose husband has thrown her out on the street and therefore is broke and living on her friends couch. Hazel has been through a lot in her life. As a result of everything that has happened, the decisions she has made right or wrong , she has ended up feeling worthless and incapable of taking care of herself.
When Hazel was walking one morning, completely hungover from a night of drinking and drugs, she hears a yelp; a cry for help perhaps? So when she goes to find what it is, she discovers a dog that is in dire need of help and rescuing. While reading this I was concerned Hazel would not do the right thing and she did contemplate it, so as each thought went through her mind I became really nervous.

Little does Hazel know at the time, that in rescuing Atticus he returns the favour to her and rescues her right back; he became everything she never knew she needed and changed her life in more ways than one. She looked nice, although she smelled a little stale. She also smelled… unhappy. What can I possibility say about that crazy ass dog? Atticus was such a profound and poignant story about friendship, family, unconditional love and the hope of a new beginning.
Atticus changed all that and it was an absolute joy to read. Note to my romance reading buds, there is little romance in this story, which was a nice change of pace for me and something completely different, which I adored.
A Dog, a Violin, and a Cross-Country Road Trip to Find Herself
Sawyer Bennett has thoughtfully crafted an addictive and beautiful adventure that I know I will never forget. I could not recommend this story enough, and not just to animal lovers either, but to all who love being immersed in a story that could potentially change your life. Everyone deserves a friend like Atticus!

Atticus: A Woman’s Journey with the World’s Worst Behaved Dog by S. Bennett
Saying it's heartwarming, emotional and fun makes it seem insignificant. By the end of the book, I realised that I haven't laughed or cried this hard in a while. Atticus is a joy to read. A heartwarming book that leave you with a torrent of feel good vibes. A book based on the joy that is Atticus , the dog.

Jun 08, Dali rated it it was amazing Shelves: Atticus is certainly a journey and with it Sawyer Bennett delivers an entirely delightful tale about a smart and ornery dog who gave his owner purpose and unconditional love helping her build her confidence and self-respect.
She could barely take care of herself, much less anot Atticus is certainly a journey and with it Sawyer Bennett delivers an entirely delightful tale about a smart and ornery dog who gave his owner purpose and unconditional love helping her build her confidence and self-respect. She could barely take care of herself, much less another life. She decided to save him and in the end he saved her too because having Atticus depend on her forced Hazel to grow up along with him. Even though she has a lot to work on, Hazel is a sensitive and ultimately strong woman who just needed a push in the right directing and a few breaks.
I was completely captivated not just by Hazel and Atticus, but by every person she came in contact after she found him.
