Description

"Love is a great teacher and we are all a little unadoptable. Readers of Garth Stein and Carolyn Parkhurst will adore this" (Library Journal). A People Best New Book of the Week The Sanctuary is a refuge for strays and rescued dogs. Evie has joined a training program there despite knowing almost nothing about animals. Like the greyhound who won't move, the Rottweiler with attitude problems, or the hound who might be a candidate for search-and-rescue, Evie has a troubled past. But as they all learn, no one should stay prisoner to a life they didn't choose. Heartfelt and hilarious in turn, this is a deeply moving novel of the countless ways in which humans and canines help each other find new lives, new selves, and new hope.
