Description

"An enchanting book-please read." -Dr. Jane Goodall, DBE; Founder of the Jane Goodall Institute & UN Messenger of Peace In this touching audiobook memoir about the relationship between father, daughter, and animals, Carole George explores life after adopting thirteen pet Karakul lambs. Throughout her years with the lambs and her aging father, she comes to realize the distinct personality of each creature, and to understand more fully the almost spiritual bond between man and animals. This beautiful audiobook will touch the hearts of listeners everywhere. "In her new book, The Lambs, Carole George shares the fulfillment she has experienced over years tending a flock of sheep. I hope that this book will inspire readers to become more compassionate toward the living beings deprived of the many privileges we humans enjoy." -His Holiness The Dalai Lama "The Lambs is beautifully written, and right on target as an example of the natural-pastoral-world where we may achieve the fullness of human experience. Our descendants may gravitate toward the equivalent of [Carole's] Virginia farm." -Edward O. Wilson, University Research Professor Emeritus, Harvard University

Professional reviews

"This audio memoir--about the author's relationship with her father and the flock of sheep she comes to know and love--also fits the genre of personal transformation. Ann Marie Lee captures the author's thoughtful tone as George comes to reflect on her successful urban law career and reconsider what matters most to her, including rediscovering the thread of her literary life. As George embraces a pastoral life and gets to know the personalities of her new charges, she muses about her life's deepest values with an affectionate and sometimes bemused air. This listen will entertain those who enjoy learning more about tending sheep (and all that entails--from castration to weaning to shearing) and those who want to consider the consequences of a rerouted, rediscovered life.
