Montana works with therapy dogs. She visits hospitals and nursing homes delivering the love that only a dog can give to people who are lonely or sick. Simon is a surgeon who specializes in burn victims, his life is ordered and completely sterile. After one of her dogs gets loose and causes something of a ruckus in the burns ward, one of Simon's very sick patients, 10 year old Kalinda asks to see the dog, and willing to do just about anything to help the young girl recover he arranges for a therapy dog to visit his patient. I really enjoyed this book a lot. It was a gentle story with a measured pace. My only real complaint is the way it ended. I think it was just a little too easy.
