                                                Praise for

                             Jack of Hearts


      "A wonderful. funny and touching novel. Shimoni is not simply a dog, he is our guide; he

      is our friend. Stay by his side, stay by his heart, and he will take you to places you haven't

      been, and show you things you haven't seen; after reading Jack of Hearts you will understand

      the true depths of love and devotion."

           ~Garth Stein, author of NY Times Best-seller, The Art of Racing in the Rain


      "This novel has freshness, originality and a huge heart of gold. Shimoni is one of the most

      unforgettable narrators I've ever read, and does he have a story to tell! I loved everything

      about this book."

          ~Susan Wiggs, NY Times Best-selling Author of Just Breathe


      “This is a most heartfelt and extraordinary work for a first novel. Ms. Gainey moves easily 

       out of the realities of our everyday lives into an unexpected turn of canine spirit. It is an

       intriguing and wonderful read.”

           ~Lynn Andrews, NY Times Best-Selling Author of Medicine Woman
