The story is about a vibrant young rancher named Cody, who was blinded by an explosion on his ranch, and who has become so depressed and withdrawn from life that he has gone from a rich active life as a trainer of cutting horses to sitting in a lawn chair by the pool and brooding.
A lively young trainer of guide dogs shows up unannounced one fine sunny day on the ranch Cody built with his dad and brothers,with a german shepard named Otis in tow. After learning that Lyssa and Otis have been sent by his father who is away on vacation, Cody promply fires them and attempts to send them on their way. What he doesn't realize is that Lyssa is just as determined to help him as he is to get rid of her.
It's a story about overcoming fear and reaching out for life when it seems that dreams are dead. There is romance--but not too much--just right! Also a nice big surprise toward the end...so don't miss this beautifully told story about Cody and Lyssa. You'll be glad you did.
