Summary

Dogs always have a way of finding people.

When a tumultuous past causes Alice Gray, the only woman Lou Pearson has ever loved, to leave her for good, she shrinks away from the world, trying to make amends. She dedicates years of her life to train service dogs and save rescues. Little did she know that a rescued dog would save her, too.

Caspian shows up in Lou’s life, and the dog guides her to a young girl who desperately needs him and to the girl’s mother, Alice, propelling Lou into a past she believed she’d never have to face again. To a woman who she assumed she’d lost forever. 

As an old romance and deep emotions resurface, Lou’s worst fears come crashing back and she can’t help but wonder: This time, if it all falls apart, will Alice stay?

A good story

I enjoyed the interactions between characters. Anna is great. The dogs are great.

One random pet peeve. The brain dead stroke patient. Makes for a touching scene. As a rehab doc it makes me cringe. Most of the time it is not so simple and a diagnosis of brain death would rarely be made quickly within a few hours.

To portray that scene re-enforces misconceptions that lead patient families to expect that type of cut and dry diagnosis.

Better verbage would be... large stroke, poor prognosis, unable to maintain airway, brain swelling. Only thing that would save his life would be drastic surgery, but severe stroke deficits. Spouse stating that she knows he would not want to live like this. Neurologist agrees it is reasonable to withdraw life support.

I know that is a weird beef about a peripheral scene. Very har to realistically portray the intubated saying goodbye without getting into thorny medical or ethical issues.

End of rant.

Book was OK

I liked the story, liked the characters. Hated the narration, the childish voice was horrible, completely not united to the story. I kept going on because the story was good.
