THOUGHT PROVOKING FICTION
“Every once in a while a piece of fiction comes along that can change the way we think about the world. The Awareness is one of those transformational novels—it’s a wonderfully written book that tells an entertaining and suspenseful story, but even more, it would be almost impossible to read this book and not come away with a new and heightened understanding of the human-animal relationship” –Bruce Friedrich, Senior Director for Strategic Initiatives at Farm Sanctuary
“The Awareness is one of the most powerful and moving novels in the area of human-animal relationships that I’ve read in a while. Almost every single page made me stop and think about who we are and who ‘they’ (other animals) are and how we mistreat them in numerous different ways. But, what if the tables turned and ‘they’ became ‘us’ and treated us as if we were they? This is the basis of this thought provoking work of fiction, featuring among other animals, a bear in the Canadian Rockies, an elephant in a traveling circus in Texas, a pig on a hog farm in North Carolina, and a dog living with his beloved owner in New York.” —Psychology Today
