Abused, beaten and abandoned, Bruin has many issues to overcome, but, he is also a rascal. A canine Huck Finn, Bruin is used to looking out for himself.

Join Bruin in his journey to becoming a trusted family member."I'm Fine!...or, Not." is the fifth book in the series, Bruin's Home, and the fourth book of four under the theme, Adjustments. Bruin in a new environment, finds he is going through an adjustment period, a crisis, if you will. The patterns, habits, survival skills he knows, and knows well, no longer are appropriate. And, his abuse and neglect have left him emotionally and physically in a constant state of alert. Looking at crisis from a Christian perspective, this series has already covered the traditional stages, Fright/flight, Anger/Depression, Denial, is now ready to move into the last stage, Acceptance. Through his newly found friends, Maddie and Reggie, Bruin works through the crisis, and finds new habits and mechanisms to help better cope with change, good or bad, that may come his way.
Just ten years ago I took my first hesitating and dubious steps toward authorship. My reception on the part of the public has been so much kinder than I expected, and the audience that has listened to my stories with each successive autumn has been so steadfast and loyal, that I can scarcely be blamed for entertaining a warm and growing regard for these unseen, unknown friends. Toward indifferent strangers we maintain a natural reticence, but as acquaintance ripens into friendship there is a mutual impulse toward an exchange of confidences. In the many kind letters received I have gratefully recognized this impulse in my readers, and am tempted by their interest to be a little garrulous concerning my literary life, the causes which led to it, and the methods of my work. Those who are indifferent can easily skip these preliminary pages, and those who are learning to care a little for the personality of him who has come to them so often with the kindling of the autumn fires may find some satisfaction in learning why he comes, and the motive, the spirit with which, in a sense, he ventures to be present at their hearths.
