A poignant and unforgettable tale of love, loss, and moving on . . . with the help of one not-so-little dog

Rocky's husband Bob was just forty-two when she discovered him lying cold and lifeless on the bathroom floor . . . and Rocky's world changed forever. Quitting her job, chopping off all her hair, she leaves Massachusetts—reinventing her past and taking a job as Animal Control Warden on Peak's Island, a tiny speck off the coast of Maine and a million miles away from everything she's lost. She leaves her career as a psychologist behind, only to find friendship with a woman whose brain misfires in the most wonderful way and a young girl who is trying to disappear. Rocky, a quirky and fallible character, discovers the healing process to be agonizingly slow.

But then she meets Lloyd.

A large black Labrador retriever, Lloyd enters Rocky's world with a primitive arrow sticking out of his shoulder. And so begins a remarkable friendship between a wounded woman and a wounded, lovable beast. As the unraveling mystery of Lloyd's accident and missing owner leads Rocky to an archery instructor who draws her in even as she finds every reason to mistrust him, she discovers the life-altering revelation that grief can be transformed . . . and joy does exist in unexpected places.

I loved this book and the importance of the lab - dogs are truly man's best friend. I have a chocolate lab and being a "kitty " lover it amazes me still at the joy this dog brings me. Can't wait to read more books by this author.

This was an excellent 'human interest' story about getting over the loss of a loved one, rebuilding a new life and an endearing dog. A very enjoyable read.

Loved this book. Great characters woven into an interesting story centred on an authentic woman with all the flaws and virtues we all have in various measures. And, a bonus for me, a dog identifying all with the wisdom and self reflection so often unrecognized by us mere humans. A good read.

Great read

I may be somewhat prejudiced by how closely my own experience with the sudden loss is echoed in this wonderful book to give a fair review. None the less, this book has consumed me. Her understanding and expression of the grief process is achingly accurate. The parallels with my life in this book have me not wanting it to end. As soon as I post this, I am starting the sequel. I guess I should really be commenting on plot and character development but since I have been so drawn in by both, I fear my ability to remain objective is affected. Read this if you have lost someone suddenly or if a dog has saved you. Heck, just read it.

Rocky loses her husband and while recovering, saves a dog, who saves her back. A great story of love and healing. All of the characters are so memorable and bring something special to the story.
