Publisher's Summary

Harley loses everything when his master dies — his home, his best friend, his reason for living. Day after day, he trudges the streets, trembling from the biting cold, whimpering from the gnawing hunger.  

Across town, Rachel has an alimony hearing looming and a make-or-break deadline hurtling toward her, yet they aren’t her biggest worries; her autistic son has withdrawn so far into his own private world, and he barely acknowledges she even exists.  

Luckily, the magic of life is in the surprises no one ever sees coming….  

If you love dogs, and enjoy stories just as heartwarming as they are heartbreaking, you need to hear When The Skies Cry. Listen to it now!

Loved Harley

This was so good, but definitely bittersweet. I loved all the characters, humans and dog. I liked the brief appearance of Kai from book 1. Although this is billed as a series, the books aren’t related so you can read them in any order. Fair warning: Keep Kleenex handy!

Such an emotional listen

This heart wrenching story will take you on an emotional journey. I really felt for the characters as they experienced the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.

Steven N. Lee did a fantastic job of switching back and forth between the dog and human perspectives as he tackled some very deep topics. This story will stick with me for many years to come.

Brittany Presley really did a great job to expressing all the feelings and emotions. Her performance was perfect.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review.

Heartwarming and heartwrenching

Disclaimer: I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. A beautifully written story that focused a lot more on the people as compared to the first book of the series. This book is heartwarming, heartbreaking and, like the first book, made me acutely aware of the little things in life that we take for granted and introduced a new perspective, from both that of the dog and the people. The characters in this story is lovable, they each have their own quirks, their own way of handling things and it's interesting to see how everything ties together with the introduction of the dog. Narration by Brittany Presley is absolutely perfect. She brings out all the character's emotions, struggles and expressions so well, and sets a very good mood. The way she read the lines of the characters are simply amazing, she really brought everyone to life.

This is worth listening to.

You will not regret listening to this story. Listening to Rachel's story being a single mom and struggling with her autistic son. Harley has experience for living and has a great life serving his alpha leader until he passes. Harley is loyal and finds himself living on the streets. Will an encounter in a park change their lives?

Listen to this story and you will be drawn in and will not regret it. I did receive a copy but am willingly providing my review.

A 5 Star powerful story!

I listened to the audio version of this book.This is a really powerful story of a dog helped by a woman and her son (who is on the spectrum) that ends up giving more to them than they could ever give him. This is the second book in the series and I really love the point of view of the dogs. I found myself thinking, "Oh, yeah. That's how dogs feel about that". I'd have to remind myself that the author had just written it well enough to make me believe that he knows way more than is possible. I so want to believe!

This is a great story, but be prepared to cry. I think the story is worth the tears.

I was gifted a copy of this audiobook by the author. All thoughts are my own.

A Wonderful Story

I was very moved by this story about Harley. The passages describing when Harley met Rachel and her autistic son painted a picture that will stay in my imagination for a long time. The story was creative with moments of heartrending sorrow and laugh out loud joy. There was always something happening and I couldn't wait to find out what would happen next. I recommend this story to others. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series. Brittany Presley does an amazing job as the narrator as her voice was very expressive. I was given a free copy of the audiobook and I have voluntarily left this review.

Depressing

I was loving this book. But then, as with this authors previous book, The main person in the story contracted cancer. This is a bit of a sensitive topic for me and I’m really struggling with how many books have women with cancer in them. It seems like a bit of an easy sad topic for people to write about. It makes it hard to find books that you want to listen to.
