“Dessa Dean hasn't been able to make herself step off the porch of the Colorado mountain cabin she shares with her father since her mother died. Then, a big fudge-colored dog arrives and things start to change. A beautifully written story about honoring the past and moving into the future, The Leanin' Dog is a sure bet.”

More than anything, Dessa Dean needed a friend. A friend to love and confide in, a friend with whom she could share her heart. A friend who would delight in all the beauty and joy and fun of Christmas, only four days away.
Hope had just about run out, but then . . . there came a scratchin' at the door and Dessa Dean's life was forever changed.
