"Wow, what a book! I think I was crying on page 3. The collision of man and dog, and the unbreakable bond they form, made my heart leap. Everyone should read this book to better understand not only the ravages of war, but the amazing capacity of the human spirit to rebound. I dare anyone to read this book and not believe in the power of love to heal."
-- Lee Woodruff, author of In an Instant (with Bob Woodruff) and Perfectly Imperfect

Shortly after I read this book, my son, who served 3 tours in Kuwait and Afghanistan and was scheduled to go back, took his own life. It was so hard, especially since he seemed so happy, with a woman who loved him and a baby on the way. He planned to retire from the army in 4 years and move back to where he could be close to us. I found the insights I gained in Until Tuesday to be helpful and comforting.
This is an important book for every citizen to read. It has become THE book I give or lend to everyone. I hope it will raise the questions of just what the personal cost is of sending our young people to war, and how we are willing to support them when they return. And for the younger audience, I recommend Tuesday Tucks Me In, a warm and beautiful book that introduces a special way service dogs can help humans.
This book contains some of several of these groups, but not in the amount or number that takes over the narrative. The magical part is that in his homage to his service dog, Luis Montalvan also makes a case against war, states what some of us long suspected about a recent conflict, and points out the need for more public information disseminated, and addressed, to the injuries so many of our veterans have sustained. And it still manages to wonderfully describe the dog, and the bond forged between them.
He's a guy with a mission, and I didn't get the book for that, I got it because I love and train my own dogs and always hope for a good dog book. This one, written by what was a non-dog person, is a gripping trip, whether you care about dogs, the military, the vets or just want to look through a window into a world most of us never see. You come away both entertained and informed.
