Publisher's Summary

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 pause resister. 

Madison knows her 14-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 center where Madison is working, and when Abbie meets him she stops pacing the room. Duke is tugging his owner, 75-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.

this was an okay book

I love books about dogs but I have to tell you Madison ruined this book for me she was the biggest whiny little b**** I've ever read on. She was awful she whined and complained about everything and it was all about her. Her character ruin this book.

Very good all the way around!

My husband and I listened to this book together and we enjoyed it very much. We are both dog lovers, and we lost our sweet golden retriever a few months ago. Duke, the hero of this story, reminded us of our own "sweet boy" each time those same words were applied to Duke. The story kept our interest all the way through. The reader's performance was good, and she showed enthusiasm and sounded like she enjoyed doing it. We would recommend this book to those who enjoy dog stories and human interest stories, from early teens on up. I would definitely rate it a "G".
