Daddy says, “Most folks got a north star in their life—something that gives their life extra meaning. Mine is music.”
Without even thinking, I say, “Mine is Tam.”
 
Abby knows that Tam, her Shetland sheepdog, is her north star, and she’s pretty certain she’s his, too. But when an accident separates Abby and Tam, it feels as though all the stars have fallen out of the sky and nothing will ever be right again. As the days between them turn to weeks, then months, dangers and changes fill up Abby’s and Tam’s lives. Will they ever find their way home to each other?

Set in the Blue Ridge Mountains, a dog’s way home is an unforgettable tale of the many miles, months, and mountains that divide two loyal friends—but that can’t possibly keep them apart. Download and start listening now!

    " Lovely book, but I have a hard time with books in which animals communicate in the first person. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Contessa | 12/26/2013

    " I was reading this with my sons (6/8) and the older one asked me to stop because the story is just too sad. We made it to chapter 20 and it was a tough story about an 11yr old girl loosing her best friend not to mention the struggles the dog goes through on the journey. Maybe if they were older? Not ok for my house:( "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianna | 12/1/2013

    " A touching story of endurance and perseverance. However, it was a touch overwrought and, especially towards the end, ridiculously unbelievable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 11/29/2013

    " This is a story about a Shetland Sheepdog who gets in a car accident with his owner and her mother and gets lost.This book is like Lassie-Come-Home. I liked it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mustang | 10/2/2013

    " I really, really, really liked it because it's alot like "The Incridible Journey" which is such a good book. "

    " This is such a heart-warming picture of unconditional love by both pet and owner. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Martha | 2/24/2013

    " Great story. Of course predictable, but heartwarming still. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deanna | 1/4/2013

    " I couldn't help but feel that this story was a rip-off of The Incredible Journey. I did, however, enjoy that the story was told from 2 points of view, that of the lost dog Tam and his owner Abby Whistler. "

    " Great story (actually 2 stories, that of Abby as well of Tam) but I was so stressed reading it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brandi | 7/25/2012

    " Not really a animal story person. It was still a good book. Just not for me. "
