For anyone who has ever loved a dog against their better judgement... Dogged Optimism is the story of a scruffy little dog and the woman who loves her.

Molly Greene, The Gen Delacourt Mysteries Will charm you with its window into life Down Under and inspire you with its insights into overcoming personal challenges.
