Lisa J. Edwards
The International Bestseller
The 'feel good' book of the season… Boo’s story reminds all of us that life is full of possibilities and that hope often arrives wagging a tail. —Best Friends magazine
The dunce of obedience class with poor eyesight and a clumsy gait, Boo was the least likely of heroes. Yet with his unflappable spirit and boundless love, Boo has changed countless lives through his work as a therapy dog: inspiring a six-year-old boy to speak for the first time in his life, coaxing movement from a paralyzed girl and stirring life in a ninety-four-year-old nun with Alzheimer’s disease. But perhaps Boo’s greatest miracle is the way he transformed Lisa Edwards’s life, giving her the best gift of all: faith in herself.
This is the inspiring true story of how one woman and one dog rescued each other, a moving tribute to hope, resilience and the transformative power of unconditional love.
