"This book will grab your heart and not let go."
John Grogan, author of Marley & Me

A wise, engaging meditation on dogs, love, and recovery from pain. Come. Sit. Read Lily King, author ofEuphoriaand The Pleasing Hour

If you ve ever loved a dog, this book is a must-read. Missourian


The Sanctuary is a refuge for strays and rescued dogs. Evie has joined a training program there, though she knows 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 she didn t choose. Heartfelt and hilarious in turn, this is a deeply moving story of the countless ways in which humans and canines help each other find new lives, new selves, and new hope.

This is a miracle of a book . . . Cooney is such a wise genius of a writer, and her sentences keep surprising you, but are never the point in themselves. I read with a kind of mental breathlessness. If Cooney needs someone to convince her to write a sequel, I volunteer. Gail Godwin, author of Evensong and Publishing

A moving and joyous romp . . . All the dogs are wonderfully, fully drawn characters . . . A brilliantly crafted, uplifting book. The Bark
