A wounded boy, an abandoned mutt, a worried mother, and a God big enough to bring healing for them all.
Peter is a young teen who is emotionally and physically scarred following a tragic accident. Hoping to find a way to help Peter reconnect with his family, his mother, Lanie, agrees to let him adopt a dog from the Humane Society. So begins the relationship between Peter and hist neurotic mutt, Sunny.
Told from the alternating points of view of Sunny and Lanie, Waiting for Peter is the story of the healing power of love between a boy and his dog and an allegory of how we should all view our relationship with God, our Master.
Deeply touching and beautifully written. Delightful and tender – Ann Gemmel
Nice Things People Say
“I almost bubbered through the last pages of this story. I definitely had to stop several times to wipe away the tears, and I still have a knot in my throat as I write this review.
The heart-touching story is told from the dual points of view of Peter’s mom and Peter’s dog Sunny. The reader experiences that special bond between a human and his/her dog and also what it means to be a mother as she watches her child/children grow up and spread their wings, leaving her behind. And the elements of faith included are quite beautiful.” – Robin Lee Hatcher, best-selling novelist
“From the moment I read the first paragraph of this book, I was hooked.” – Sarah, GoodReads
