Product description


"Whistler will not only tug at your heartstrings, but he'll grab hold like a terrier on a chew toy--and you'll walk away changed for having met him. If you cried at the end of Marley and Me, you'll love the wonders found within the pages of this heartwarming story."--James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of Crucible

"If Nick Trout is as good a veterinarian as he is a writer, he is a miracle worker... This is magic."

--Susan Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of One Good Dog

"The heartwarming story of a boy and a dog searching for each other against all odds. Nick Trout's latest page-turner is a testament to the deep bonds we form with our dogs, and how that bond can change our lives."--Maria Goodavage, New York Times bestselling author of Top Dog

"From hardship, Nick Trout creates beauty, and his warmth and wisdom shine through. The Wonder of Lost Causes is the kind of story that will stay with you for a long, long time."--Kristin von Kreisler

"Suspenseful, heart-wrenching, and life-affirming, this riveting book is at once great fiction and vividly, urgently true. Science has only begun to reveal the powers of animals; the heart can see deeper yet. These pages open us to those wonders, and teach us that no cause is truly lost."--Sy Montgomery, New York Times bestselling author of How to Be a Good Creature

"Equal parts heart-wrenching and heartwarming... A true testament to the power of love in its purest and most absolute form."--Rachael Lippincott, New York Times bestselling author of Five Feet Apart

From the Back Cover

In this unforgettable novel, perfect for fans of An Unexpected Grace and A Dog’s Way Home, a single mom and her chronically ill child receive a valuable lesson from an unlikely source—a very special dog who unexpectedly enters their lives and shows them that one person’s lost cause can be another’s greatest gift . . .

Dr. Kate Blunt will do anything for her son, Jasper. Well, almost anything. Since
Jasper has the incurable lung disease cystic fibrosis, Kate’s always told him he couldn’t get a dog. It’s a tough call, but she’s a single mom taking care of a kid who fights for every breath he takes. The daily medical routine that keeps Jasper alive is complicated enough. Worse still, Kate’s personal resolve runs contrary to her work as the veterinarian in charge of a Cape Cod animal shelter, where she is on a mission to find forever homes for dogs in desperate need.

The scarred, mistreated wreck of a dog that turns up doesn’t stand a chance. Named Whistler, he’s too old, too ugly. But the dog forms an instantaneous bond with Jasper. Whistler never makes a sound, yet he speaks to Jasper in a myriad of mysterious ways. The clock’s ticking, the dog’s future hangs in the balance, and Jasper would do anything to find him a home; but Whistler has chosen them—for a reason.
