About the Author

Dr. Nick Trout works full-time as a staff surgeon at the prestigious Angell Animal Medical Center in Boston. He is the author of five previous books, including the New York Times bestseller Tell Me Where It Hurts, and his writing has been translated into sixteen different languages. He lives in Massachusetts with his wife, Kathy; their daughter, Emily; their adopted labradoodle, Thai; and Emily's service dog, a black Labrador named Bella.


"From hardship, Nick Trout creates beauty, and his warmth and wisdom shine through. The Wonder of Lost Causes is the kind of story that will stay with you for a long, long time."--Kristin von Kreisler
"Suspenseful, heart-wrenching, and life-affirming, this riveting book is at once great fiction and vividly, urgently true. Science has only begun to reveal the powers of animals; the heart can see deeper yet. These pages open us to those wonders, and teach us that no cause is truly lost."--Sy Montgomery, New York Times bestselling author of How to Be a Good Creature
"Whistler will not only tug at your heartstrings, but he'll grab hold like a terrier on a chew toy--and you'll walk away changed for having met him. If you cried at the end of Marley and Me, you'll love the wonders found within the pages of this heartwarming story."--James Rollins, New York Times bestseller of Crucible
"Equal parts heart-wrenching and heartwarming... A true testament to the power of love in its purest and most absolute form."--Rachael Lippincott, New York Times bestselling author of Five Feet Apart
"If Nick Trout is as good a veterinarian as he is a writer, he is a miracle worker... This is magic."

--Susan Wilson, New York Times bestselling author of One Good Dog
"The heartwarming story of a boy and a dog searching for each other against all odds. Nick Trout's latest page-turner is a testament to the deep bonds we form with our dogs, and how that bond can change our lives."--Maria Goodavage, New York Times bestselling author of Top Dog
