When I happened upon the description of Saving Cinnamon, my first impression was that this is a book likely to resonate with our readers. Once I made my way through the glowing reviews and noted that the author was a neighboring Vermonter, there was no way I was going to let it escape your attention. Thanks to Christine Sullivan’s agent, I now have a complimentary copy sitting on my desk, just waiting for one of you to take it home.
Set against the backdrop of the war in Afghanistan, Saving Cinnamon beautifully chronicles the love story of Navy Reservist Mark Feffer and a stray puppy he bonded with while stationed outside of Kandahar. When Mark is about to return stateside, he decides to adopt Cinnamon and sets up her transport back to the U.S. But the unthinkable happens and Cinnamon is abandoned by the dog handler who was supposed to bring her home, and disappears with out a trace. Mark and his family start a desperate search for the puppy which lasts 44 days and ends dramatically when Mark and Cinnamon are finally reunited. This is a touching memoir told by Mark’s sister, who initiated the rescue efforts.
