A moving memoir of a life spent caring for animals, from the pastoral English countryside to an inner city Philadelphia ER, by a veterinarian making an uncommon and unforgettable literary debut.

Suzy Fincham-Gray dreamed of becoming a vet since she was a teenager. In 2000 she graduated, with honors, from the Royal Veterinary College in London. Her journey has taken her from the English-Welsh border to the West Coast of America, with thousands of stories collected along the way. Her experience is intimately connected to the stories of her patients and their owners, to the universal experience of illness and healing and how we care for our loved ones whether they are animals or not. We meet Grayling, an Irish Wolfhound in need of intensive care; with Ned, a rescue dog from Mexico, we experience the joy of saving an animal from disease; and the story of Sweetie explores the lengths doctors will go to save a loved one, from the perspective of those involved in their care, to those who can do nothing but watch. Fincham-Gray is a rare breed--a clinician with an elegant, literary style. She affords a view few can obtain and writes with the same compassion she brings to her patients, whose needs she must meet with her hands and her heart. Download and start listening now!
