Publisher Description:
In her new volume of reflections and true animal stories, Susan Chernak McElroy invites us to broaden and deepen our relationship with animals. She also asks the tough questions that engage every true animal lover. How can we soothe our anguish and guilt when a loved one dies? How do we atone for our mistakes? Is it moral to eat other beings? And how can we go about transforming our relationship with animals?

Through daily experiences with the animals around her and those in her dreams -- along with compelling true stories sent to her by readers -- McElroy began to find answers. Animals, she discovers, are guides in the development of our souls. They are key to the growth of our inner selves. A frail llama, for instance, teaches lessons of joy and unconditional love. A barn cat proves that service need not be imprisonment but fulfillment. And a mortally injured hawk infuses a cancer patient with renewed strength and faith.

In this deeply personal yet universal testament to the profound connection between animals and humans, there is proof, once again, that animals can lead us to our most genuine selves.
