      4.5 starsSay Goodbye for Now is a beautifully written book that will stay with me for a long while While the summary for the book focuses on the relationship between Dr Lucy and Calvin, I felt the main character was actually Pete Solomon, who has become my favorite adolescent character in fiction today Pete is such a kind and caring individual whose story is heart breaking I was rooting for him the entire book and was so thankful that he met Dr Lucy The story opens in 1959 in a small West Texas [...]

      It s 1959 and the country is still prejudiced against anyone of color When an abused 12 year old boy, Pete, finds what he thinks is a dog injured alongside the road he tries to help it and his best friend abandons him Turned away from the vets because the animal is a cross between a wolf and dog he tries to make it several miles out of town to get help at a lady doctor who he has learned helps animals Along the way he meets an African American boy by the name of Justin his own age and they strik [...]

      Initial ThoughtsI thought that this was going to be a book about a dog I obviously didn t read the blurb about the book before reading it probably because I was distracted by the pretty dog on the cover There is a dog in the book A wolf dog but the dog isn t the main point of the book This book is about race, love, and what makes a family The narrators did a good job with the story Book source Audible purchaseFull review to be posted soon.

    6. Carole says:
      Catherine Ryan Hyde knows how to write characters that I connect with better than anyone I felt as though I personally knew Pete, Dr Lucy, Calvin Justin I thought this was going to be mostly about a dog, and though that s what brings these unlikely friends together, the dog is not central to the story It s about being a good friend, helping someone, and doing the right thing It s also about unfairness cruelty I was in tears after a certain hospital scene This makes my last book of 2016, and also [...]

      All of my reviews can be found on novelgossipAs much as I adore my creepy and intense thrillers and mysteries, over the Christmas holiday I wanted to snuggle up with a book that didn t have a serial killer as a main character I won a copy of Say Goodbye For Now from the author and was so exited as I ve had several of her books in my TBR and hadn t gotten around to them before now I m kicking myself now that I waited this long to read one of Ryan Hyde s novels and I m vowing here and now to read [...]

    8. Ezinwanyi says:
      This story grazes upon on a number of sensitive subjects There was the issue of a female doctor, Lucille Lucy Armstrong, whose husband left her as her professional standing exceeded his In addition, her adolescent son resented her because of her work schedule Adding insult to injury, Dr Armstrong was lacking in respectable patients as many people in the rural area of Texas refused to be treated by a woman Then author also deals with the issue of child abuse and abandonment as the reader was intr [...]

      Four lonely people find each other in a small, Texas town in the stifling time period of 1959 When Pete finds a hurt dog wolf on the side of the road, he takes the animal to Dr Lucy, who lives alone on a small ranch and cares for injured and unwanted animals Reluctantly, she helps the dog, and soon, her life becomes complicated as she becomes involved in the lives of Pete, his new friend, Justin, and then Justin s father, Calvin Normally, this would be a good thing, but in 1959, a white woman be [...]

    11. Trudy says:
      3.5 Stars So, I love this author and have read several of her books However, this one left me a little flat It s an awesome story, though I just could not reach the level of emotion I should have felt while reading this Some really horrendous events occurred here, but the characters reactions were not realistic They should have been mad as hell , about some of the things which happened, but I just didn t get that while reading their dialogue In fairness, this book has received almost all positiv [...]

    12. Noriko says:
      This is a beautifully written book on friendship, royalty, and love The subject matters dealt in this book are certainly hard hitting and made me sick in the stomach at times, but this is undeniably one of the thought provoking books that I read this year.The story focuses on the main two characters, Pete and Dr Lucy and they respectively have their own issues, Pete with his abusive father and Dr Lucy with a dark past of having divorced and lost her son to pneumonia she secludes herself away fro [...]

    13. Jenny Whetzel says:
      I have only read a couple books by this author but know that I want to keep reading This is a fantastic story The characters in this story are very likable and have a lot of depth to them Lastly, this book has a positive lesson.

    14. Barb (Boxermommyreads) says:
      I picked this book up after reading one which led to a huge reading slump and little did I know this book would be all I needed to cure it I have previously read another book by Catherine Ryan Hyde, Worthy, and although I adored it as well, I had no idea this one would be so much better.One early summer day Pete and his friend are headed out fishing Along the way, they run into a large dog alongside the road who has been hit Pete immediately wants to help the dog, because that s just the type of [...]

    15. Mrs Mommy Booknerd http://mrsmommybooknerd.blogspot.com says:
      Another brilliant book by a very talented writer that keeps giving us stories that we cannot put down Say Goodbye for Now was another book of hers that I was completely engrossed by It kept me engaged and turning pages She mixes characters, both human and four legged into a story that warms the heart, gives back hope and promise in the world I highly recommend this book and know for certain it would be a book club hit

    16. Goth Gone Grey says:
      Loving winsThe 1950 s seem too recent to call this a historic fiction story And yet, the antiquated views on race relations that were common in those times make it feel further away than it was Or, even sadder, that some still hold those views But I digress This is the sort of book that pulls you into another time while making you happy that those times are somewhat, anyway, we re learning in the past A boy finds an injured dog, a friend, and a new family, the story developing slowly, with grace [...]

    17. Jan says:
      Wow this was a wonderful book It was a thoughtful, heartwarming story that tackled the difficult subject of racial prejudice in the late 1950 s Hyde handled the subject well and with a lot of dignity I absolutely loved the main characters Petey was a great kid showing such honor and bravery in each difficult situation he encountered I enjoyed watching Dr Lucy s guarded heart open up to much needed healing With the addition of Calvin and his son Joseph we have four hurt and oppressed human beings [...]

    18. Agnes (BeaderBubbe) says:
      I keep forgetting how good Catherine Ryan Hyde writes This story starts off slow with Dr Lucy by herself Not able to practice medicine because the town wont accept her as a woman doctor she resorts to taking care of wounded animals and lives alone in the house her father left her.But one day that all changes with Pete, a little boy who found a wolf dog injured and when the vet would not help him, he takes the animal to Dr Lucy And that is when a friendship starts with not only the doctor but als [...]

    19. Tiffy_Reads says:
      This book gave me all the feels It may take a few moments to get them back in check Set in the late 1950s 4 people who aren t supposed to be seen together try to form a close knit family and friendships Driven away by racism, hatred and violence they will have to work their hardest to try to make things work If you ve not read this book Get your hands on It ASAP.

    20. Eileen Goudge says:
      Beautiful and Life Affirming As moving as Ms Hyde s previous novels, this one hits all the right notes and leaves you satisfied, knowing that there are good people in a world full of bad ones

    21. Nancy says:
      I love books by Catherine Ryan Hyde This book deals with one parent homes, racial hatred, child abuse, commitment to promises, healing of broken hearts, etc A young boy finds a dog hurt on the highway, and he promises the dog, that he will help it The local vet will not work on a wild dog, which is probably part wolf The boy gets his old wagon, and finds a recluse of a doctor, who takes in hurt wild animals, who agrees to help him On the way he meets a young black boy, who has just moved to town [...]

    22. Christine Nolfi says:
      Ryan Hyde has a gift for transmitting rich emotion with an economy of words Poignant, timely, and unforgettable, Say Goodbye for Now adds another jewel in her crown as a storyteller Highly recommended.

    23. Barbara says:
      Catherine Ryan Hyde, where have you been hiding This story has such a lyrical, melancholy feel to it The writing is so descriptive, every moment I felt I was there with Dr Lucy as she took care of the gunshot wound of a thief, I was there as Pete s father berated him, and when Pete finds Justin after he gets beaten within an inch of his life, and for the tender, budding relationship between Calvin and Lucy The writing had the feel of Kent Haruf, who has written so many great stories taking place [...]

    24. Diana says:
      It is a rare book that captures the essence of a critical period in history in a way that resonates today As I reflected on the impact of Say Goodbye for Now, I came to see that for me, and perhaps for anyone disheartened by the current unrest in our country, this is a story about finding a way to carve out, and protect, a space for possibility while living in a seemingly impossible time.Just as this novel was delving into the transformational power of woundedness, millions of the walking wounde [...]

    25. Marvin says:
      I liked this in spite of myself It s a sappy story told without much creativity or style, the characters are cliched, and the dialogue is stiff and unbelievable Yet for what it is, it works The straightforward chronological narrative carries you along, and you quickly learn to care for the characters a crusty female doctor with a hidden heart of gold living on an isolated ranch in Texas, caring for a bunch of abandoned, damaged animals a 12 year old boy, also with a heart of gold, nearly perfect [...]

    26. Kari says:
      Say Goodbye for Now is a compelling and at times heart wrenching story Initially set in 1959, it s the story of 4 people who find each other during unstable times and form strong bonds that sustain them through the ups and downs of the turbulent 60s I found this book to be hard to read at times Don t get me wrong, it was well written and the story is beautiful What I found hard to read was how Calvin and Justin were treated just because of the color of their skin Because of the time and town the [...]

    27. Karen says:
      I received this ARC from netgalley in exchange for a review 1950 s Texas, 12 year old Pete rescues a wolf dog he finds injured on the highway He brings the hybrid to reclusive Dr Lucy who is bitter, angry and disillusioned Caring for the wounded dog, Lucy and Pete learn to love and trust again.Although the animals remain in focus, the book sweeps around the topics of racial bias, segregation, physical violence and child abuse 3 stars

    28. Kim says:
      Great ReadAnother great read by CRH I really enjoyed this book and looked forward to seeing how it all played out Loved the ending

      2.5 5Ainda estou amarga em rela o ao enredo desse livro A Catherine Ryan Hyde poderia ter feito coisas fant sticas com ele, infelizmente ela n o fez O livro se alterna entre os POVs da Dr Lucy e do Pete, mas eu s gostei de ler os cap tulos com o POV do Pete.Teria sido melhor se o romance do livro tivesse acontecido entre o Pete e o Justin Eu senti que eles tiveram uma tima qu mica e realmente conseguiram construir uma rela o de afeto e amizade verdadeira entre os dois Algo que n o aconteceu entr [...]

    30. S. Murphy says:
      I ve been a fan of Catherine Ryan Hyde s work for some time This just might be my favorite of her novels As the white mother of bi racial sons, this book touched me in deep ways Loved the characters and the stark reality of the times 1959 Superb read.
