One Good Dog: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Macmillan Audio

Date: March 2010

Duration: 8 hours 23 minutes


'One Good Dog is a wonderful novel: a moving, tender, and brilliantly crafted story about two fighters-one a man, one a dog- hoping to leave the fight behind, who ultimately find their salvation in each other. Susan Wilson's clear and unflinching style is perfectly suited for her story that strips away the trappings and toys we all hide behind, and exposes our essential need to give and accept love in order to thrive.'-Garth Stein, New York Times bestselling author of The Art of Racing in the Rain
Adam March is a self-made 'Master of the Universe.' He has it all: the beautiful wife, the high-powered job, the glittering circle of friends. But there is a price to be paid for all these trappings, and the pressure is mounting-until the day Adam makes a fatal mistake. His assistant leaves him a message with three words:your sister called. What no one knows is that Adam's sister has been missing for decades. That she represents the excruciatingly painful past he has left behind. And that her absence has secretly tormented him all these years. When his assistant brushes off his request for an explanation in favor of her more pressing personal call, Adam loses it. And all hell breaks loose.
Adam is escorted from the building. He loses his job. He loses his wife. He loses the life he's worked so hard to achieve. He doesn't believe it is possible to sink any lower when he is assigned to work in a soup kitchen as a form of community service. But unbeknownst to Adam, this is where his life will intersect with Chance.
Chance is a mixed breed Pit Bull. He's been born and raised to fight and seldom leaves the dirty basement where he is kept between fights. But Chance is not a victim or a monster. It is Chance's unique spirit that helps him escape and puts him in the path of Adam.
What transpires is the story of one man, one dog, and how they save each other-in ways they never could have expected.

  • Janet Buduhan-Wiens

    Excellent read. A story of compassion, redemption and second chances, told from the points of view of a good man with anger management issues, and a good dog who is recovering from his experiences in an illegal dog-fighting ring. In each other they find a kindred spirit, as well as a friend and companion to ease their loneliness. A novel the reader won't easily forget.
