Author of the critically acclaimed The Other End of the Leash

In a powerful, soul-searching, beautifully written memoir, animal behaviorist Patricia McConnell recounts for the first time the compelling story of her dark past, memories of which are triggered by a troubled dog named Will. In order to save Will from dangerous outbreaks of fear and fury, Dr. McConnell was forced to find her own will to heal.


Customer Reviews

“A compassionate account of the reclamation of the author's life from abuse and shame. An uplifting story of hope about how both dogs and humans need 'a sense that they are not helpless victims.'”
