Sometimes the dogs we rescue… also rescue us.
A heart-wrenching and beautiful story perfect for dog lovers everywhere. Fans of A Dog’s Purpose, The Art of Racing in the Rain and Marley and Me will be utterly entranced by this gorgeous page-turner.

Madison knows her fourteen-year-old daughter Abbie is struggling. She wishes she could give Abbie stability, the promise of a forever home in Millbury, but she is scared to stay in one town for too long, and every day Abbie seems more anxious. Until a chance encounter with a beautiful, boisterous golden retriever puppy called Duke changes everything…

Duke bounces into the community centre where Madison is working and when Abbie meets him she stops pacing the room. Duke is tugging his owner, seventy-five-year-old Arthur, along for the ride, and instantly Madison sees a way she and Arthur can help each other. She offers to train Duke so that Abbie gets to see him, and from that moment the four of them become a family.

Madison finally feels like she has a second chance at life and a reason to stay in town, but when her past catches up with her they are all at risk.

Duke may have united this family, but will he be able to keep them together?

A reminder of the unbelievable bonds we form with the dogs in our lives. No matter how broken you are, the unconditional love of a dog can piece you back together.

My Review:

As soon as I heard that this author had a new book coming out, I jumped at the chance to read and review it! I loved her previous book.

This book is simply wonderful. It’s touching and gorgeous, without unnecessary sentimentality, but it truly captures the essence of our special bond with the dogs in our lives.

There is a saying about the right dog choosing you, and coming along just when you need them. In the case of Duke, this is literally what happens. A dog’s sense of intuition is astounding, and Duke just knows that he and Arthur need each other.

Madison and Abbie come into their lives too, and Duke’s capacity for love and healing increases to include them.

There’s a totally captivating storyline in this book. Madison is always moving on, but what is she running from? The characters are wonderful, I was particularly fond of Arthur, and of course of Duke, who gets some chapters told from his point of view. This really enhances the story, and the author’s understanding of a dog’s mind is so fascinating. I can really see some of these characteristics in my own dogs.

A must-read for any dog-lover, this beautiful book will bring a tear to your eye, and joy to your heart.

My Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
