Book Spotlight Giveaway! House Broken by Sonja Yoerg

I have sooooo many books! The Book Spotlight Giveaway feature that I post every Saturday is a way for me to clear my shelves and to share some of the many books I have. This feature is a way for my to cull my collection and to give someone else the opportunity to enjoy these treasures.


House Broken is a book that I read and loved when it first came out. You can read my thoughts here. I have been a big fan of Sonja's stories ever since. I was able to snag an extra copy of this wonderful book to offer to one of you! 

This book struck a cord for me in several ways. At one time we had a chocolate lab who looked very much like this dog. How can you just not fall in love with this precious dog face? The main character is a veterinarian. My sister is a vet. And who doesn't have a little dysfunction in their family? I know we do! 

Good luck and be sure to stop back next week!


House Broken

House Broken by Sonja Yoerg
Paperback, 336 pages
Published January 6th 2015 by NAL

In this compelling and poignant debut novel, a woman skilled at caring for animals must learn to mend the broken relationships in her family.…

For veterinarian Geneva Novak, animals can be easier to understand than people. They’re also easier to forgive. But when her mother, Helen, is injured in a vodka-fueled accident, it’s up to Geneva to give her the care she needs.

Since her teens, Geneva has kept her self-destructive mother at arm’s length. Now, with two slippery teenagers of her own at home, the last thing she wants is to add Helen to the mix. But Geneva’s husband convinces her that letting Helen live with them could be her golden chance to repair their relationship.

Geneva isn’t expecting her mother to change anytime soon, but she may finally get answers to the questions she’s been asking for so long. As the truth about her family unfolds, however, Geneva may find secrets too painful to bear and too terrible to forgive.


About the author

Sonja Yoerg

I grew up in Stowe, Vermont, the daughter of a ski instructor. In my first incarnation, I was a animal behaviorist who studied learning in blue jays, hyenas and kangaroo rats. I wrote a book about that. Now I make stuff up.

I've published three novels, House Broken, Middle of Somewhere, and All the Best People. My fourth, True Places, will be released 1 January 2019. I'm very excited about it, but then again, I get excited about a lot of things.

When I'm not writing or pretending to be writing, I run, garden, cook, eat, drink wine, then run some more. My husband and I live in central Virginia with a view of the Blue Ridge Mountains. It's quiet and pretty, like Vermont. ~ Goodreads
