Look for Jean's new book, Joy Unleashed: The Story of Bella, An Unlikely Therapy Dog, now available at most online stores. It's a touching memoir that crosses borders and generations to reveal the power of redemption, healing, and love. After losing her job in New Jersey, Jean adopts a dog named Bella from Dead Dog Beach in Puerto Rico. Their journey into the world of therapy-dog work gives them both new purpose in life, and helps countless others overcome their own pain while learning that broken souls can, indeed, be healed. A must-read for anyone who appreciates the true power of the human-canine bond.
