Sharron Kahn Luttrell was still mourning the death of her beloved German shepherd when she decided to volunteer as a weekend puppy raiser. With her kids growing more independent, what better way to fill her time than by helping others—especially if it means getting an adorable pup every weekend?

But Daisy, an adorable bundle of fur the color of buttered toast, captures Sharron’s heart the moment she’s handed the leash. And while Keith, the convict who cares for and trains Daisy during the week, seems intimidating at first, he is soft-spoken and polite. What’s more, Daisy’s appearance on Fridays, freshly scrubbed and sweet smelling, seems further evidence of his gentle nature. Each new command Daisy masters and task she learns suggests a man who is patient, persistent, and committed to his work. The weekly “hand-offs” soon fall into an easy rhythm as Sharron and Keith bond over their mutual love for Daisy.

Then Sharron discovers the horrifying crime that led to Keith’s incarceration and her trust in him is shattered. Ultimately, it is Daisy and her unwavering trust in Keith that helps Sharron come to terms with Keith’s past, and to recognize his struggle for redemption.

In an emotional and uplifting memoir, journalist Sharron Luttrell describes an unforgettable year. Sharron and Keith start their journey believing that they are training Daisy, but in truth she is the one showing them the way: gently pushing them to fulfill their own destinies, to grow up, let go, and experience what it really means to sit, to stay, and to love.
