About the Author

Nanci Turner Steveson grew up in Connecticut, England, and Texas, always with a book in one hand, the reins of a pony in the other. She wrote her first "novel" at the age of nine about a wild horse named Liberty. Nanci works with the Off Square Theatre Company as a stage manager and youth-performer shepherd. She is a reading fairy to book-hungry children and a riding instructor. The mother of two grown sons, Nanci lives in a meadow at the foot of the Grand Tetons in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, with her Arabian horse and a 100-pound rescue dog named Story. She is the founder of the Literacy for Hope project, dedicated to getting books into the hands of the homeless. Visit her online at www.nanciturnersteveson.com.

Reviews

"Nanci Turner Steveson sagely delivers all the feels through well-crafted, cinematic scenes. From hard losses to the triumphs of finding home again, each creature--canine and human--takes their unique journey to the ultimate gift of unconditional love. Truly unforgettable." -- Leslie Connor, author of National Book Award Finalist The Truth as Told by Mason Buttle

"Oh, if only we could see it all from a dogs'-eye view. Maybe we'd understand more fully the importance of kindness, a full plate of kibble, and a loving human to seal the deal. By the end, I wanted to adopt all of the dogs in this story. It's that kind of book: a game changer for any creature who's ever been lost or found or both." -- Kathi Appelt, Newbery Honor author of The Underneath

"Each dog's story illustrates one of the many ways dogs come to need new homes and how wonderful rescue animals can be." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Alternating dogs'-eye views propel this immersive pack story from Steveson... Themes of love, hope, and belonging resound throughout, balancing the sometimes dark content." -- Publishers Weekly
