The Mountaintop School For Dogs And Other Second Chances

New and Noteworthy from USA TodayA Best New Book of the Week from People "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 of Euphoriaand 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 *This book may have remainder mark*
