Carolyn Reardon Neuman about this book: I have always thought that I would immediately recognize life changing events, assuming that they would be accompanied by trumpets, banners, unicorns and rainbows that heralded their impending import. But carefully hidden in a typical life of business deadlines, financial responsibilities, chauffeuring kids around and walking the dog is where I found everything I needed to deal with a great, big, juicy life changer. It was the black humor joke shared with my husband right before we both drifted off to sleep that reminded me to keep my sense of humor when the going gets tough. It was time spent in the kitchen, making mac and cheese with my teenage daughter, that reinforced a bond that left us both stronger and provided much needed emotional balance. But never in a million years would I have thought that the simple act of my family bringing a rescue dog into our home would be a life changer and a lifesaver. Poe, my rescue dog, rescued me.
