Publisher's Summary

In her first work of contemporary women's fiction, bestselling author Kay Bratt draws on her own life experiences to create a raw, yet inescapably warm, novel about friendship and a wary heart's unexpected capacity to love.

A hungry, stray dog is the last thing Cara Butter needs. Stranded in Georgia with only her backpack and a few dwindling dollars, she already has too much baggage. Like her twin sister, Hana, who has broken Cara's heart one too many times. After a lifetime of family troubles, and bouncing from one foster home to another, Cara decides to leave it all behind and strike out alone - on foot.

Cara sets off to Florida to see the home of her literary hero, Ernest Hemingway, accompanied only by Hemi, the stray dog who proves to be the perfect travel companion. But the harrowing trip takes unexpected turns as strangers become friends who make her question everything, and Cara finds that as the journey unfolds, so does her life - in ways she could never imagine.

I'm so thankful for a good, positive, clean story.

This book started slowly for me. My husband and I listened while on a road trip. It took him longer to get into it. Eventually, he asked me to get the story going whenever it was interrupted. It kept him awake while driving. My husband enjoyed it. I'm so disappointed in so many other fiction books, because other books have so much detailed immortality that they make me sick. This book was great. This story involves a dog, but it also addresses being in the foster care system and family relationships and healing. It was refreshing. I will recommend it to my adopted daughter who has adopted many homeless dogs.

Wonderful and moving!

Wow, throughly moved by this book, it reminded me so much of a female modern day Travels with Charlie. Heartwarming tale of two sisters that are twins with opposite personalities. The kind and generous people met along a journey and an amazing dog! Highly recommend this book, totally worth the credit!

Unique & positive perspective of lives formed by miscommunication

A good summer read with a glass of sweet tea & at a peaceful moment. It is unique in it's storyline, requires a bit of thought & leaves you with some hope in this twisted, victim world.

Predictable

This was a fairytale book. Some of the things that happened were so very lame it was laughable. If you like this type of book, this one is for you. It would make a good Hallmark movie. Just not my cup of tea.
