He wants to do his duty but is worried about leaving Lady behind, he then discovers that he is able to enlist her as a guard dog to work alongside him. Although the Germans are in retreat, there is still fierce fighting and David, along with Lady, is taken as prisoner of war. Whilst in the camp Lady offers comfort to the internees, and finds a link between the internees and the German guards. The bond between her and David becomes even stronger. This bond, indeed love, for each other makes them even more inseparable right to the very end.

Initially I was apprehensive about reading this book as it's not the genre I would normally select. It was my daughter that recommended I should give it a go as we both share an interest in history and she had read and loved it. Well I can tell you that I virtually couldn't put the book down from the moment I started it. I normally only read just before going to bed but I found myself stealing moments during the weekend to read it. I loved they way the characters are so believable that they almost leaped from the page. The author really puts you back in rural pre war Yorkshire. You can really feel remarkable bond between David and Lady during the highs and lows (have some handkerchiefs at the ready) of their journey in this wonderful heartfelt story. I would recommend this book to anyone animal lover or not as it's simply just a damn good read. Gary Langman

I love animals, and one of my favourite dogs are German Shepherds the bond between a dog and its owner is inseparable. Chris has really captured this in this heart tugging story. It even made me shed a tear at the end. This book was also read by my 9yr old and she loved it so much she asked for the next book. Both of us can't wait for the next books.
