Summary
Still mourning the death of her previous dog, Sharron Kahn Luttrell decides to volunteer as a weekend puppy raiser in a program for prison-trained service dogs. Daisy captures Sharron's heart the moment she's handed the leash. Keith, the convict who cares for Daisy during the week, seems intimidating at first, but he is soft-spoken and polite. Each new command Daisy masters suggests a man who is patient, persistent, and committed. Sharron and Keith soon bond over their love for Daisy. Then Sharron discovers the horrifying crime that led to Keith's incarceration and her faith in him is shattered. Ultimately, it is Daisy and her unwavering trust in Keith that helps Sharron come to terms with Keith's past, and to recognize his struggle for redemption. Sharron and Keith start out believing that they are training Daisy, but in truth she is the one showing them the way, gently pushing them to let go and experience what it really means to sit, to stay, and to love.--From publisher description
