Description

After 13-year-old Charlie Hall’s mother dies and his father retreats into the silence of grief, Charlie finds himself drifting lost and alone through the brutal halls of junior high school.

But Charlie Hall is not entirely friendless.  In the woods behind his house, Charlie is saved from a mountain lion by a grizzly bear, thought to be extinct in northern Idaho. 

And this very unusual bear will change Charlie’s life forever.

Deeply moving, and interwoven with hope and joy, Emory’s Gift is not only heartwarming and charming coming of age story, but also a page-turning insightful look at how faith, trust, and unconditional love can heal a broken family and bridge the gaps that divide us.

Praise For Emory's Gift

Praise for A Dog's Purpose

"I loved the book and I could not put it down.  It really made me think about the purpose of life.  At the end, I cried."--Temple Grandin, New York Times bestselling author of Animals in Translation and Animals Make Us Human

"[A] first novel that follows the spiritual journey of a dog through four incarnations...Marley & Me combined with Tuesdays With Morrie." --Kirkus Reviews

“This quickly paced, touching novel will charm all animal fans, especially those who loved Garth Stein’s The Art of Racing in the Rain and Vicki Myron’s Dewey, the bestselling saga of a library cat.”--Booklist

“Did you bawl at the end of Marley and Me?  Well, before you settle in to read W. Bruce Cameron’s new book, A Dog’s Purpose: A Novel for Humans, you might want to make a major Kleenex run. Cameron who has had two bestsellers already gets everything right….Yes, you will cry—but you will laugh out loud, too.”Cesar’s Way Magazine

“This book gives you a glimpse into the heart and mind of a dog—and will change your view of our furry friends forever.”—Guideposts
