Harley lives to serve his purpose. When his master and best friend dies, he loses not only his home, but everything he holds dear. Confused, cold, and hungry, he roams the street searching for food, avoiding dangers, all while trying to be the good dog that he is.
Meanwhile, everything seems to be falling apart for Rachel. Taking care of her autistic son and meeting a deadline for a life-changing project, she sure does need help and receiving an ominous text message from her ex-husband is never a good thing.
This is a touching and a heart-warming book that offers so much to the readers. First, it gives us a glimpse not just of the difficulties of a single mother taking care of her son but of the unconditional love she is capable of. Second, it shows us the struggle of a mother trying to give her son with special needs a normal and comfortable life. Third, it depicts the love and loyalty of our fur family. Simply put, this is a book that portrays unconditional love, friendship, compassion, empathy, and other emotions that transcend material possessions.
The book is populated with a set of lovable characters first of all, of course, is the magnificent Harley, a smart, loving, and loyal service dog. Of all the characters, I find Rachel the most relatable. She is the typical adult bombarded with problems and difficulties life has to offer. My favorite, however, is Izzy, the epitome of a best friend.
What I love most about this book is the unpredictability. I have read a lot of books of various genres already. Somehow, I had difficulty trying to guess what is going to happen next in this story. Finally, I don’t how other readers feel about the ending, but for me, it’s liberating.
