DescriptionA heartwarming dog story like no other: Tuesday, a lovable golden retriever, changes a former soldier's life forever. A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalvan never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home from combat, however, his physical wounds and crippling post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. He wondered if he would ever recover. Then Luis met Tuesday, a sensitive golden retriever trained to assist the disabled. Tuesday had lived among prisoners and at a home for troubled boys, and he found it difficult to trust in or connect with a human being--until Luis.Until Tuesday is the story of how two wounded warriors, who had given so much and suffered the consequences, found salvation in each other. It is a story about war and peace, injury and recovery, psychological wounds and spiritual restoration. But more than that, it is a story about the love between a man and dog, and how, together, they healed each other's souls."

Reviews for Until Tuesday
A must read book
This book shows a different side of war.
The emotion side.
The raw, unpleasant side of what war.
Even the strong are affect by what goes on in the battle fields.
There stories do not make headline news.
The courage, honesty and sheer will to keep on living makes this book a book you cant put down.
Will a will to live and the love of a trained dog, Captain Luis Montalvn is truly a hero on the field and off.
He overcame so much, wrote of so much pain. All this, just so that you and I have a better understand of 'the real side of war' - The physical and emption side once our troops come home. by Alexis Stam
