Book Review of Angel in a Fur Coat from the Florida Times Union
That's the idea that became the inspiration for a local woman, Cynthia L. Enuton, to write a book and a spinoff creative enterprise.
Enuton's book, Angel in a Fur Coat, which she wrote and illustrated, is a fantasy fiction story, geared toward children ages 7 to 11 — and, of course, dog lovers. She maintains a website dedicated to the story at gooberella.com.
Enuton is a former mental health counselor who worked with emotionally challenged children and teens, and found that simple interactions with her pet dog helped many of them heal. Today, she and her Pekingese, Xia, are often seen at pet events around town.
You can find her singing books on May 20 from 2-4 p.m. at the Borders Southside Boulevard; May 22 at the Riverside Arts Market; May 27 from 2-4 p.m. at the Books-a-Million on Marsh Landing Parkway; and May 31 at the Memorial Day River Fest in Green Cove Springs.
Enuton also makes customized "Fur Angel" magnets and necklaces from photos that customers send her.
She donates $2 of each Fur Angel purchase (and $3 of each package) to the St. Augustine Humane Society, which is getting back on its feet after having to close in 2008.
