Like a fly on the wall. From the inside out. The heart of the family. The only one to see it all.

The family dog sees everything, so when Meriel gets a call and collapses into tears, Benji knows something is very wrong. The life in the family he loves and everything he knows starts to fall apart, and Benji fears for all of them.

Meriel and Phil’s marriage unravels fast and relationships with the children follow suit.  Benji, the Labrador, watches like a hawk and sees the tears when Meriel tells her best friends what is going on. He is wary of the new people in their lives, terrified that life will never return to normal. 

Narrated by both the dog and Meriel, Brown Eyes looks inside a marriage that is breaking up. Can it be saved?
