Toby David Johnson

Toby: A Novel by [Johnson, David]

Symphony Nelson has weathered more than her share of hardships—in part thanks to the faithfulness and affection of her adopted puppy, Toby. Her formerly chaotic life seems to be settling down, until a peaceful walk in the woods leads Symphony and Toby to the reclusive cabin of Caleb Showalter, who knows more about her past than he’s telling.

When an old friend resurfaces and expresses his affection, Symphony warily longs for love, and it is Toby that nudges her toward pursuing a reconnection. But when violence strikes at the hands of her possessive boyfriend, Symphony’s trust is shattered once again.

Just when Symphony’s faith in humanity seems lost, Toby is injured in the woods, and she has no choice but to reach out to Caleb for help. Together, they face their fears and lost trust head-on. If they can save Toby, they might be able to let go of the past and to believe in the goodness of others—and themselves—once again.

Recived this book for review from netgally and the publisher In exchange for an honest review this has in no way affected my opinion.

I thought this was just going to be about Toby but it was about Toby and so much more. This is about teaching us how to be better people in this world. This shows a girl with a drug and alcohol problem and how she can over come it and it also follows a man with PTSD from the way and he stays away from people However with the help of Toby and his owner’s help Symphony help him along the way. I enjoyed this book I kept waiting for something to happen to the dog Toby and thank god nothing did.

This is a good read with great characters and I also loved the importance of the dog being in her life while she is dealing with this addiction. I will defiantly be reading more from this author in the future. I loved the plot twist because I just didn’t expect it.

4/5
