An unforgettable story of love, loss and a dog called Lloyd...

Happiness can be found in the most unexpected places...

Roxanne Pellegrino's world collapses when her husband dies unexpectedly, and overwhelmed by her all-consuming grief, she runs away for a new start on Peaks Island.

But her new life of solitude is interrupted when she meets Lloyd – a stray black Labrador with an equally unhappy past. As both slowly begin to heal, a remarkable friendship blossoms, and Roxanne will soon discover she’s not so alone after all...

‘I love the story so much ... it spoke to me’
Katherine Heigl


a powerfully-told story ... Sheehan has a real talent for producing situations which make the hairs on the back of your neck stand on end and characters you warm to. Lloyd simply stole my heart.


A gripping tale of obsession and personal struggle that's moving and heart-stopping in equal measure
