From the New York Times bestselling author of One Good Dog comes a novel about a woman's cross-country journey to find her lost dog, and discover herself.

"Multiple hankies, dog lovers. this is an emotional read." - Library Journal   If there's been a theme in Justine Meade's life, it's loss. Her mother, her home, even her son. The one bright spot in her loss-filled life, the partner she could always count on, was Mack, her grey and black Sheltie - that is, until she is summoned back to her childhood home after more than twenty years away.  Ed and Alice Parmalee are mourning a loss of their own. Seven years after their daughter was taken from them, they're living separate lives together. Dancing around each other, and their unspeakable heartbreak, unable to bridge the chasm left between them. When they find a little black and gray dog by the side of the road, they take him in.    Fiercely loyal, acutely perceptive and guided by a herd dog's instinct, Mack has a way of bringing out the best in his humans. Whether it's as Justine's partner, or just the ebb and flow of a family's rhythms, it's as though the little Shetland Sheepdog was born to bring people together.   Everyone needs Mack.  But to whom does the little dog who danced belong?

This audiobook was OUTSTANDING.
I have been listening as I walked on my treadmill & the hours have flown by. Each disc is a little more than an hour, so I walked for the hour & then listened to the rest of the disc in a living room chair.
That is until the end of the 6th disc, then I finished it without stopping.
I have a hold on 'One Good Dog' another audiobook by Susan Wilson.

As a dog lover, this book broke my heart and made my heart soar. Truly, a dog can change a person's life -- smoothing out the rough edges and healing heartache. This dog is so smart and has an amazing understanding of human need.

Awesome story for people who love their dogs. I could really relate as I have Shelties and know their loyalty to their owners. This story touches on lives of humans who have gone through many crises and how this special little dog touches each of them with healing. It is one of the best stories I have listened to.
