Richard Spinney, who served for 20 years in the U.S. Coast Guard and is currently a member of the Maine Genealogical Society and a former contributing editor of "The Maine Genealogist", has completed his new book "The Adventures of EMMA": a captivating story of how a stray dog's life was affected by people she encountered after being rescued from a life of loneliness and starvation."
"When William meets Emma, she is famished, dehydrated and barely alive, having run away from an abusive owner," writes Spinney. "Although a vet suggests putting the dog down, William takes her into his household, along with his wife and two huge dogs.
"As the months pass, Emma gains more confidence and independence. After Emma regains her strength, she is excited to explore her new surroundings. She ventures out on her own. Upon seeing her return one day, William turns to a visitor and concedes, 'That's Emma being Emma.'
"Each adventure is a new experience for Emma, whether it is by herself or accompanied by William or William's wife Molly and one of the dogs. Emma learns that every person brings new perspectives and lessons. If you look beneath the surface, you will see the true heart of a person. Some people are unkind like her former owner, while some people are really special like William and William's friend Elijah and other people whom she meets along the way."
Published by Newman Springs Publishing, Richard Spinney's adorable story is a moving exploration of the ways in which humans and dogs can learn deep truths about life from each other. Through kindness and understanding, William slowly helps Emma recover, and receives love in return tenfold as Emma learns all about the world through the different people she meets along her journeys.
