My Review
A LADY’S PAST was a great read and I really loved Diana. This was not the boring romance where the girls is some sort of swooning maiden, but rather a strong woman who starts to fall for the man that helps her while still trying to guard her heart and protect those around her from her past. I really enjoyed this romance as it had a real feel to it!

"Sunny Weber takes readers on a remarkable journey between two worlds as we follow the puppy, Kaya, struggle to live and grow with a family of coyotes, and then experience returning to her role as a dog living with people. In addition to exciting adventures, challenges, and drama experienced by Kaya, we also learn about the differences between the animals, and their very different relationships to people.

As a biologist that works with coyotes and dogs, I appreciate the creative way Sunny distinguishes the two animals in such an engaging story. Highly recommended for young readers interested in dogs, coyotes, and the world through their eyes."

"What a beautiful, heartwarming book!  Sunny incorporates the stories of abused and neglected farmed animals to bring attention to their plight.

Sunny does a wonderful job of telling the story of Kaya, a caring and compassionate dog who is forced to confront her values and make difficult decisions to follow her heart or to fit in. Kaya teaches us to have empathy for all animals, regardless of their species."

Book Description:

Eight-week-old Australian Shepherd Kaya is kidnapped by a nasty coyote to be food for his mate and puppies. Instead, the loving mother raises Kaya with her own pups. But as hard as she tries, Kaya can’t completely fit in—she can’t kill prey or stay awake for night hunts. Why can’t she make herself a true coyote? Constantly criticized by her coyote father, Kaya finds support in her new mother and siblings. She also figures out how to contribute through teamwork with her brother and sister. Trapped by a dog rescue, Kaya re-enters the human world and learns the differences between how dogs and coyotes live. When freed to roam again, does she return to her forest freedom—or remain with her farm family? Can Kaya forever straddle between the Wild and the Mild?

My Review
From Wild to Mild: A Dog in Two Worlds by Sunny Weber followed eight-week-old Australian Shepherd puppy Kaya as she went from domestic life to living with coyotes only to end back up in the human world. I really enjoyed the way the author showcased the differences between dogs and coyotes, yet also allowed Kaya to bond with some of the coyotes. This would be a great for dog loving middle schoolers!
