Anne E. Moses Pens THE GRACIE GUIDE TO NEW YORK CITY
by BWW News Desk - Jan 3, 2017

Take in the sights, sounds and smells of New York City, seen from a unique perspective. Gracie, an English cocker spaniel, sniffs out the best the Big Apple has to offer and shares her impressions in a new children's and dog-lover's book released by Dog Ear Publishing. It's the third book in a series of Grace Guides. 'The Gracie Guide to New York City' takes readers on a whirlwind tour of the city's highlights from renowned buildings such as the Flat Iron Building, Chrysler Building, New York Public Library and Little Church Around The Corner to cultural destinations such as the Guggenheim Museum, Cloisters, Museum of Modern Art, Wall Street, the 9/11 Memorial and Lincoln Center. The Plaza Hotel (more than 100 years old) and its famous fictional resident Eloise are one of Gracie's favorites, as is the building that seems as if it's been named after her: Gracie Mansion, which housed several New York mayors after serving as an ice cream parlor, school and a museum. She also describes shopping, the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Santa's arrival and Christmas at Rockefeller Center: all magical moments. 'Gracie's Guide' includes tips for getting along with doormen and friends at Madison Square Park's doggy playground, and she can't pass up a chance to recommend a few restaurants. Charming illustrations with plenty of personality - created by Anne E. Moses - capture the spirit of the city and its many attractions for young and old. Moses has lived in Switzerland, Italy, Greece and the United Kingdom. The author and illustrator was born in the United States, but she and her husband, Bill, who live in Athens, Greece, travel extensively with Gracie. Moses also wrote the companion books 'The Grace Guide to Good Manners for Proper Pooches' and 'The Grace Guide to Her Really Fun ABCs,' as well as the illustrated children's bedtime story 'Gatos Musikos: A Secret Told by the Moon.' Gracie, an English cocker spaniel, was born in Hungary. She loves to swim in the sea and go on adventures. She and Moses plan to pair up again to create other Gracie Guides featuring cities around the world.

She looks to relationships and men to complete her life and provide what she desperately wants; to be deeply loved and fulfilled. Her choices, motivated by various reasons, only serve to deliver an avalanche of emptiness and pain, as each failed marriage leaves her more dry and empty. Stripped of any self-value and worth, she begins to retreat into a life of isolation and regret until only an empty bitter shell remains. However, the reader can see how God pursues us, even when we feel worthless and valueless. This story amplifies the understanding that no one is too lost, too low or not important enough to receive restoration, redemption and the refreshment of what a relationship with Christ can bring.
