Giveaway: Saving Cinnamon

Life With Dogs is reader-supported. We may earn a small commission through products purchased using links on this page.

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.

  2. I bought this book last year. It was heartwarming and gut-wrenching as well. I definitely recommend this book for all dog lovers.

  3. What a beautiful video – I have tears (of joy) streaming down my face as I type this. God Bless Cinnamon, Mark and all the people that made her rescue possible. Mark and his family are obviously wonderful people – how could anyone that would go to those lengths not be? Here’s wishing Cinnmon and her new pack a wonderful 2011 full of love and new adventures.
