Balsam is the dog that couldn’t come home in this poignant story of a dog and her adopter and their struggle to adjust to life together. Rescued by Turtle Gardens Animal Rescue from the wilderness of northern British Columbia, Balsam had lived her life as a feral dog before being adopted by author Nancy Bain.
While Balsam struggled against the constraints of four walls, leashes, and fences, Bain struggled to create a loving and safe environment for her, determined to win her trust. They each succeeded in their own way.
