For eight years, Shannon Kopp battled the silent, horrific, and all-too-common disease of bulimia. Stuck in an endless cycle of bingeing and purging, Shannon was overwhelmed by broken promises: to herself, to her family, to her future. Finally, at twenty-four, she got a job working at the San Diego Humane Society and SPCA, where she found the inspiration to heal and the courage to forgive herself. With the help of some extraordinary, homeless animals-dogs like Sweet Pea, Big Girl, Abby, Stewie, and countless others-Shannon realized from her suffering, something beautiful had been born. Compassion.Shannon's poignant memoir is a story of hope, resilience, and the spiritual healing animals bring to our lives.
