This is a true account of a young woman, Laurie, who adopts a sick, unwanted dog named Mia. As Laurie struggles to teach the dog to trust and obey her, she learns to trust and obey God as well. Each chapter provides new insights Laurie learned about her own life through working with Mia, who is blind from diabetic complications.
Laurie’s story is told to readers through Kim Meeder, the owner of Crystal Peaks Youth ranch, where Laurie works. It shifts from scene to scene, each time showing the two women talking, skiing, or riding horses as they discuss what Laurie has learned from owning Mia. Laurie’s growing relationship with God is emphasized throughout the book, making it more a book about faith than about the dog.
This book wasn’t what I expected from reading the first chapter online, but it was still a pleasant read. For Christians who are searching for a closer relationship with God, it offers some encouragement, and reminders of God’s unfailing love for all of us.
