an old and secret garden mean their
lives are about to become a lot more complicated...

Nothing is missing from her carefully timetabled life. Except, sometimes, everything. One simple act of kindness is about to shatter the walls Eleanor has built around herself. Now she must learn how to navigate the world that everyone else seems to take for granted – while searching for the courage to face the dark corners she's avoided all her life. Change can be good.

Mikael Lindnord
The Dog Who Crossed The Jungle To Find A Home
When you are racing 435 miles
through the jungles and mountains
of South America, the last thing you
need is a stray dog tagging along.
But that's exactly what happened
to Mikael Lindnord, captain of a
Swedish adventure racing team,
when he threw a scruffy but
dignified mongrel a meatball one
afternoon. When they left, the dog
followed. Try as they might, they
couldn't lose him – and soon Mikael
realised he didn't want to. Crossing
rivers, battling illness and injury,
and struggling through some of the
toughest terrain on the planet, the team and the dog walked together towards the finish line, where Mikael decided he would save Arthur and bring him back to his family in Sweden, whatever it took.
