Sometimes you can't see what matters most until it's gone.
Brenden McCarthy feels like he's lost everything. His fiancee. His independence. And his passion for life. All due to one tragic misstep while mountain climbing that cost him his sight.
But he's about to gain the last thing he ever expected.
A big-hearted black Labrador named Nelson who's given one last shot at being a Seeing Eye dog.
Both are beyond hope and resigned to live alone. And both are about to experience a bond of friendship that develops when they least expect it.
Together is a heartwarming story for anyone who's ever lost sight of what matters most in life . . . but has hope that there's more.

|display_description||Summary: "One misstep on a mountain climbing trip plunged Brenden McCarthy into darkness by stealing his sight--and everything else he held dear. But a too-indepenpent guide dob named Nelson just might lead him back to life--if they don't kick him out a guide dog school first. Brenden can't accept the fact that he's lost his sight. And Nelson can't accept that he's been paired with someone other than his former master. Just as Brenden starts to life again, a devastating setback causes him to try to end it all. Brenden releases Nelson and sits down in the middle of an intersection. At that moment, everything changes when Nelson freely decides he'd rather join Brenden in death than live without him. Now they need a leap of faith--and a love beyond words--to make it. Together."--Dust jacket.|
