Comet's Tale

ebook

"Told with abundant humor, humility, and a writing style as graceful as a greyhound, Comet's Tale abounds with revelations of the way life surprises us" (Anne Hillerman, New York Times–bestselling author of The Tale Teller).
Comet's Tale is a story about a friendship between two former winners, both a little down on their luck, who together stage a remarkable comeback. A former hard-driving attorney, Steven D. Wolf has reluctantly left his job and family and moved to Arizona for its warm winter climate. There he is drawn to a local group that rescues abused racing greyhounds. Although he can barely take care of himself because of a spinal condition, Wolf adopts Comet, an elegant cinnamon-striped racer. Or does Comet adopt Wolf?
In Comet's Tale we follow their funny and moving journey as Wolf teaches Comet to be a service dog. With her boundless enthusiasm and regal manners, Comet attracts new friends to Wolf's isolated world. And finally, she plays a crucial role in restoring his health, saving his marriage, and broadening his definition of success.
"Absolutely delightful! A very good book about a human whose life is transformed by a greyhound. Makes me want to adopt a greyhound right away!" —Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, New York Times–bestselling author of Dogs Never Lie About Love
"A powerful tale about life, family, and personal healing that reminds us all that greyhounds are love!" —Christine A. Dorchak, president of GREY2K USA
"Everything you want a memoir to be: wise, moving, honest, and true. I loved it, and so will you." —Louis Bayard, bestselling author of Courting Mr. Lincoln
"Both honest and heartwarming, and a wonderful salute to the power of man's best friend." —Booklist
