In his small Irish village, Ray is a person most of the locals stay away from. He’s not really dangerous, just a little, odd, a little different. One day Ray adopts a dog he names One Eye, for obvious reasons. One Eye’s life hasn’t been any easier than Ray’s and the two lost souls quickly form a tight bond. They live a quiet life, and time passes by. But when the locals believe that One Eye and Ray might be a threat, the two must leave their home for unknown shores. This is one of the most incredibly beautiful and moving books I have ever read. It’s pure, raw emotion.
