A Dog Like Lloyd

Formats & editions

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...
