Summary

Michelle Clark has loved animals all her life, filling her home with a menagerie of stray cats and abandoned dogs. But when her outreach work with London's homeless community leads to a chance meeting with a desperate man, and a quest to find a missing Staffie named Poppy, she has no idea that her life will be transformed forever.

Poppy is unlike any other dog that Michelle has ever met, with her unwavering loyalty, gentle nature and wise, kind eyes. Soon, Poppy finds her way not just into Michelle's heart, but into her home too.

Inspired Poppy's extraordinary love and devotion, Michelle finds herself at the start of a journey to bring hope and help to the hundreds of other precious dogs who call the city streets their home.

An inspiring, heartwarming true story about the incredible bond that exists between humans and animals, and how, in rescuing them, we can also rescue ourselves.

First book ever to make me cry!

This is a wonderful story, well written, beautifully narrated. I've never had a book move me emotionally before, not the way this one has. Poppy was clearly a canine marvel, truly special, and as with any truly special being, taken all too soon. Michelle is clearly a very selfless and dedicated lady. I am in awe of her and her team and what she has created, not least of which is a window into life on the streets. Buy this book, you will not be disappointed and then when you've read it (or like me, listened to it) donate to the deserving charity, I intend to. Congratulations Michelle, this is not only Poppy's legacy, in decades to come, yours also.
