From the New York Times bestselling author of One Good Dog comes another heartwarming novel about humans and the dogs that save us.
Rose Collins is a free woman. After spending years in prison for a murder she didn’t commit, Rose has finally been released, and a mysterious benefactor has landed her a job as a project manager on a crumbling estate in Dogtown, an abandoned settlement with a rich history.
With the support of Meghan, a grumpy ex-soldier confined to a wheelchair after an explosion, who she met while training Shark, Meghan’s service dog, as part of a prisoner rehabilitation program, Rose begins to rebuild her life. As she settles in at Dogtown and learns more about the original residents – women who often lived alone, with only their dogs for protection – she feels a connection to them, and, for the first time, starts to believe that she might have a chance at a happy ending.
But when secrets from her past begin to emerge and threaten the life Rose has built for herself, she and Meghan must fight for their freedom, happiness, and the chance at redemption.
