    Inhaltsangabe

    An unforgettable novel about the power of friendship and kindness by the New York Times bestselling author of Pay It Forward.

    In the summer of 1969, 14-year-old Lucas Painter carries a huge weight on his shoulders. His brother is fighting in Vietnam. His embattled parents are locked in a never-ending war. And his best friend, Connor, is struggling with his own family issues. To find relief from the chaos, Lucas takes long, meandering walks, and one day he veers into the woods.

    There he discovers an isolated cabin and two huge dogs. Frightened, he runs. And the dogs run with him. Lucas finds unusual peace in running with the dogs, and eventually he meets their owner, Zoe Dinsmore. Closed off and haunted by a tragic past, Zoe has given up. She doesn’t want to be saved. She wants out. But Lucas doesn’t want her to go, and he sees an opportunity to bring more than one friend back into the light. It’s either the best or worst idea he’s ever had, but Lucas isn’t giving up on Zoe or Connor.

    Their unexpected connection might be the saving grace that Zoe thought she’d lost, that Connor needs, and that Lucas has been running toward.

    Kritikerstimmen

    "Delivering this coming-of-age audiobook about friendship, healing, and love, narrator Nick Podehl brings many fascinating characters to life." (AudioFile)

    “Charting Lucas’ journey from a sheltered teenager to a worldly young adult, Hyde (Have You Seen Luis Velez?, 2019) brings signature compassion to her characters and highlights the relationships that allow us to feel a deeper sense of connection to the world around us. Fans of Hyde’s previous novels and those who enjoyed Meg Donohue’s You, Me, and the Sea (2019) will adore this ode to unlikely friends.” (Booklist)

    Großartig!

    Wer es nicht möchte, die dunkelsten und abscheulichsten Seiten der Menschheit vor Augen gehalten zu bekommen, sondern sich stattdessen daran erfreut, wenn das Gute im Menschen hervorgehoben und gefördert wird, der ist bei Catherine Ryan Hyde immer goldrichtig. Hier nimmt man stets etwas Positives für sich mit. Sie lässt ihre Protagonisten zum Leben erwachen und teilt durch deren Verhalten so viel durch die Blume mit, ohne jemals ins Kitschige abzurutschen.
    Wieder eine großartige Leistung, vielen Dank Audible für die ungekürzte Englische Ausgabe!

    Wow! What another heart-warming book by Catherine Ryan Hyde! Always a pleasure how she manages to let her characters bring out the goodness in mankind! Another very special and precious read which has a very positive and uplifting message!
    Hoping for much more of Catherine Ryan Hyde I say thank you Audible! Keep up the good work and keep considering that not everybody wants to read or hear about intrigues and bloody murders!
