This is a courageous sharing of how the author is challenged, encouraged and animated beyond her own expectations when she commits to care for a dog. The honesty and perception of her inner growth will resonate with anyone who has truly opened their heart to the unique love that dogs gift to us.
As a big fan of autobiographies and memoirs, as well as an animal lover, I felt sure I would enjoy this book. I was not disappointed. Amanda's story hooked me from Page 1. Her determination not to let life's adversities overwhelm her, coupled with humorous anecdotes about her day to day life, had me devouring the book in a few days. I hope there will be a sequel.
