Rescuing Finley By Dan Walsh

A great read for Dog Lovers everywhere (and those wanting to Honor our Wounded Warriors)
Amy Wallace has made plenty of mistakes in her young life, but she didn't see this one coming. Chris Seger is a marine serving in Afghanistan. His life is forever altered by a single, fateful step. A mother of another Afghan war vet suffers a devastating loss, which changes the course of Finley's life for good. Finley is a mostly golden retriever, who suddenly finds himself alone and confused in a dog shelter. Later, he's brought to a local prison to be trained in a special program for female inmates. Could this prison actually become the place where Finley finally finds his freedom? Rescuing Finley tells the story of how one rescue dog powerfully impacts three tragic lives and puts all of them on a road toward redemption and healing. Dan Walsh is known for page-turning, character driven novels. Fans of Dan's other novels, as well as dog-lovers everywhere will especially enjoy Rescuing Finley.
