Description

Rhyming text and soft, colorful illustrations will take you on a city love adventure! When Esme finds herself lost in the park, she is in completely new territory. Not used to the frightful and dark night, Esme has never been outside the posh home of her owner’s penthouse. Sam, a city dog whose home is the streets, comes to her rescue. They walk around the city all night long until a love starts to grow. When Sam brings Esme back to her owner, they think they will be separated forever. But will their love survive?




About the Author
Gillian Shields is the author of Immortal, Betrayal, and Eternal, the first books about the sisterhood of the Mystic Way, as well as many other books for young readers. She spent her childhood roaming over the Yorkshire moors and dreaming of the Bronte sisters. After studying in Cambridge, London, and Paris, she became a teacher. She has taught in a girls' boarding school and also in a drama school where it was rumored that the ghost of a young girl could be heard crying in the night. Gillian was inspired to write this series in celebration of the power of first love, the strength of female friendship, and the haunting mystery of the past.
