Emma handled Wyatt just right for his problem. In real life that doesn't always happen so nicely. Too bad more people don't take the time to look or think beneath what is being said and the non expression on troubled faces.
Too bad some people are not willing to change or admit that they are having problems. Sometimes years of therapy cannot erase or ease PTSD.
I enjoyed reading the story and was so happy for the two main characters were able to help each other.
We must make good decisions in life because the consequences could result in living in a living hell.
I'm glad he found true love. This is a heartfelt story. Read it you'll love it. ❤️
The story starts in medias res when Emma tries to hide from her creepy and aggressive landlord with a wounded dog in her hands, who was rescued from him. Mr. Hughes, her old neighbor helps her to escape from the building but she doesn’t know where she should take the dog, because she obviously can’t keep him while she lives there. Finally, she finds herself in a shelter but unfortunately at the time the rescue is already full. The women in the shelter looks at Emma in her bloody clothes with the shaking little dog with big ears, and she takes pity on them and gives an address to Emma outside the town, where she has to find a kennel and a boy named Wyatt who can help her. Emma hits the road and finally she arrives at the hidden kennel, where she finds a mysterious, silent guy with a lot of rescued dogs who all wait for a loving adopting family. The guy is not happy at all that Emma came to the kennel and he is not friendly with the girl, but Emma sees something in Wyatt. She sees the sadness and pain in his eyes and she wants to find out what happened with him and why he lives in the middle of nowhere, devoted his life for wounded dogs. Wyatt finally agrees that Charlie can stay, and when he sees how hard the goodbye is for Emma from Charlie, he accidently blurts out that she can come back to see her dog. He immediately regrets his invitation but he can’t take it back from the already stubborn and unstoppable Emma.
I really loved all of the characters and I loved that the relationship between Wyatt and Emma was slow-building and how Wyatt opened himself for Emma bit by bit from his firstly uncommunicative and raw demeanor. I already mentioned that I think the uniqueness of the story was given by the complexity. I think that the character of Emma and Wyatt was so layered and developed, and there were real deepness in the story. The author beautifully unfolded the emotions and pains of Wyatt and she described so authentically how he eats himself in his darkness, where he doesn’t allows anyone. Meanwhile we get his true heart to know piece by piece; that how big his heart is, that he reads aloud his books every single night for the dogs, that he would give anything to protect Emma and would do anything for her, and with Wyatt’s POV in the middle of the book, we can learn about his past. With every single revealed piece in exchange he stole one from my heart. I think the minor characters were also so great! I loved Blair, Emma’s little paranoid twin sister, Wyatt’s family and also Mr. Huge, Emma’s old neighbor.
There were so many emotions in this book and at the same time there were some surprising plot twists. Wyatt’s past was not what I expected, and the plotline was also a page turner. I think everyone’s heart jumps a little during reading this story, who loves animals. All due respect to the author for choosing this topic, it is so admirable that she could show us not just destiny of humans but destiny of animals are really important. S. D. Hendricson has a really engaging writing style ant this was a really amazing story about past, love, remorse and second chances.
