"The Dog adopted the Ancsas in the spring of '48": so the story begins.

It is this relationship, between the absent husband, the lonely wife, and the most ordinary of dogs, that lies at the heart of a book that turns the story of man's inhumanity to man into a deeply poignant but entirely unsentimental parable about the endurance of love and the meaning of caring.
