Publisher's Summary

Symphony Nelson has weathered more than her share of hardships - in part thanks to the faithfulness and affection of her adopted puppy, Toby. Her formerly chaotic life seems to be settling down, until a peaceful walk in the woods leads Symphony and Toby to the reclusive cabin of Caleb Showalter, who knows more about her past than he's telling.

When an old friend resurfaces and expresses his affection, Symphony warily longs for love, and it is Toby that nudges her toward pursuing a reconnection. But when violence strikes at the hands of her possessive boyfriend, Symphony's trust is shattered once again.

Just when Symphony's faith in humanity seems lost, Toby is injured in the woods, and she has no choice but to reach out to Caleb for help. Together, they face their fears and loss trust head-on. If they can save Toby, they might be able to let go of the past and to believe in the goodness of others - and themselves - once again.

David Johnson's novels elicit all emotions!

David Johnson's Tucker series is one of my all-time favorites although it is contemporary fiction which is far from my favorite genre. Toby is a standalone, but it has all of the factors that make the Tucker series great. The listener is guaranteed to laugh and to weep as this wonderful novel unfolds. Angela Dawe's narration is pitch perfect.

Thoroughly enjoyable!

This book has all the elements that I enjoy in a story: romance, moral dilemma, happiness, intrigue, mystery and dogs! The story moved at a good pace; I never got bored, and always looked forward to the next chapter. I will definitely want to read other books from David Johnson!

A great story

I really enjoyed listening to this book. Toby represents a best friend to so many of us I'm sure. The story teller did an outstanding job and I will look for more from this author in the future. Thanks Audible!

Very enjoyable listen!

I’m always a bit concerned when the title of a book involves an animal but this story was very nice! Would like to hear a sequel!

Easy listen, likeable characters

I was so worried about the dog, as usual, but never fear! I enjoyed living through the eyes of the main character and her world changing before her eyes.
