When a stray dog named Solomon, scheduled for euthanization in a Georgia high-kill shelter, is pulled by an out-of-state rescue and placed in a Maine foster home, everyone hopes he’ll soon find his forever family. But after only a month in his foster home he bolts, beginning an epic two-year journey south through New England. Traveling solo, Solomon survives by his instincts, wits, and the occasional kindness of an ever-changing cast of humans. Eventually he settles down in the peninsula town of Hull, Massachusetts, making his home in an abandoned shed. And when he slowly learns to trust a neighborhood family, everyone wonders: Is this family what he’s been searching for all along?
