The Rescue is a 55,000 word memoir that chronicles, with a dose of humor, the experience of rescuing a dog who was close to death.

The Rescue was written for dog lovers, cancer patients and the suffering parents of teenagers.

About the Book

The Rescue is the true story of the bond that developed between a woman and the dog her family rescued. The act of rescuing this particular dog provided the author with a profound and unexpected gift... her rescue turned out to be her rescuer. Recounted with lots of humor, The Rescue takes a close look at the seemingly ordinary events that take on extraordinary meaning in times of crisis.

The Rescue gives a glimpse of the daily lives of an ordinary, if bickering, family dealing with what is becoming the increasingly ordinary disease of breast cancer. The Author knew the doctors, the hospitals and poisonous treatments would most likely cure her physical illness, but she was left floundering for ways to cure her tortured state of mind. This book relates the instances when joy was unexpectedly present, where carefully hidden humor could be found, and where the Author found the unlikeliest hero.
