As I write this there are tears running down my face. This has got to be one of the most heart wrenching yet inspirational books I have read in a long time. It kind of reminds me of when I used to watch Lassie when I was a little girl--according to my Mom I used to sit there glued to my little chair with tears running silently down my face as well. Yes, I love all animals and that will never change.

What Kyle and his dogs go through and then live through will astound you. There is a bond between Kyle and all his dogs--The bond between Kyle and King---you really have to read this book I can't say enough good things about it--just get it ad read it! Yes, I will be getting the second in this series and any others to come.

On the eve of one of mankind’s toughest races, accompanied by thirteen of America’s rarest dog breed, rookie musher Kyle Walker only has one thought in mind: win. Discovered in the lowlands of South Carolina, the Carolina grays have traveled over five thousand miles to face off in the 2003 Yukon Quest. But one dog stands above the rest—King.

When an unexpected storm strikes, Kyle Walker and the reigning champion are forced to turn back. Stranded at the checkpoint, Kyle and his dogs find solace in a young veterinarian with auburn hair and keen green eyes—Jenna Maynor.

In this storm another race is forming, one of an Inuit man racing to save his family. Presented with the choice to help, but at the risk of his and his dogs’ lives, Kyle Walker ventures into the unknown in search of a mom and two young daughters.

The Yukon Quest was founded on the premise that a dog driver and his team should be a self-sufficient unit capable of challenging varied terrain and severe weather. But these conditions may prove to be too much, even for Kyle and King.

"As it was perilously gut-wrenching as a reader, it was, at the same time, beautifully written. Seriously, while reading it, I felt the stress and worry for their predicament, but also the quiet calm that Kyle so often exudes." - Terrill Rosado 

"A wonderful story written by a gifted storyteller who used a unique connection between man and dog that drew me into the story and touched my soul."

"A story of courage, commitment, and determination to do the right thing in the face of adversity. The love shown by the dogs and Kyle is really a beautiful, unending love. The amount intensity that comes from this story will keep you on the edge of your seat and you will not want this story to end. It is well written, articulate and the descriptions of the area and conditions are so clear you can feel them."

Hope In Every Raindrop: A Sled Dog Adventure and Romance (Faith, Hope, and Love Book 2)

Small towns have big stories. That was a lesson Katie's father taught her years ago. A lesson she's taken to heart. And right now, Katie is desperate for a big story.

Reeling from the recent loss of her father and with her agent breathing down her neck for the next book, the twenty-one-year-old writer picks a spot on the map and finds herself bound for a middle-of-nowhere town called Bishopville, South Carolina.

Taking a chance on the words of a local grocer, Katie stumbles upon a rare breed of dogs raised by the town doctor and his nephew Kyle. The only problem? Kyle isn't interested in telling stories--especially not to a big-city girl who can't seem to sit still. In an attempt to win him over as the clock winds down, Katie finds herself immersed in Kyle's world, doing everything but writing.

When inspiration finally strikes, Katie is faced with an unforeseen catastrophe and a truth she can no longer ignore. While she has come to love the dogs, the real story may be about Kyle Walker.

Beck Valley Books said...

I really need to read this one, I think hubbie would really like it too. Sounds like such a great read x

Darlene said...

My favorite bread is black labs because we have 3 but also because they are so smart, they understand probably 20 words and do all kinds of tricks.

Ivonne said...

Another excellent book review Michele!! Definitely, something I would read! I am an animal lover and have a very special and unique relationship with my furbaby! He was a rescue puppy but turns out he rescued our hearts and has brought tremendous joy and happiness to our lives and is the most cherished member of our family!

Naomi said...

That sounds like an awesome book! I love to read about dog mushing as it is such a grueling sport. I want to read this book!

Wesley Banks said...

Loved the review! Thanks for having me on the blog :)

John Smith said...

Hmm. Probably the best breed of dog is no breed--a mutt!

Laura said...

No particular breed is my favorite. We've had many breeds over the years, and all of them were wonderful! :)

Gladys Parker said...

German Shepherd's are my favorite only because that is all I have owned as a grown up. As a child/teen we had a Wiener dog, a Poodle, George, and a beagle named Jack.
