First, let me say that this is the first book I've finished in at least 6 yrs, maybe longer. I have a disability that makes reading difficult, so despite my eagerness to read over the last 10 yrs, it's always difficult for me to get through a book. This book, so beautifully written, kept me turning pages until the wee hours of the morning for 4 nights. I probably could have read it in 2 nights, but I loved it so much that I didn't want it to end, so I 'made it last'. This book is a roller ...more

I thought this book was going to be humorous but it was not. Robbing a bank was a very small part of this story. The real story is about child abuse and the horrible effects it had on this woman throughout her life. My heart went out to her. It is also about dedicating your life to rescuing animals. Dawn took her pain and experiences and put her love and energy into the love of dogs. God bless you Dawn for your love and work with animals It is so needed in the world today. It was a good story ...more

Really compelling memoir that explores the ripple effects of trauma and how we can fight to make better lives for ourselves. Lawson writes with an earnestness that keeps the reader drawn in; you laugh and cry with her as she writes about some of the best and hardest moments of her life. Her introspection is equal parts witty and insightful, a true hallmark of a good memoir.

I really appreciated reading about her journey through dog rescue as a way to ground herself as someone who also rescues

I loved this book. I laughed and cried and felt incredibly moved by both Dawns plight and her great humour and resilience. She did rob a bank, but she did so much more. She gave so much to all those who loved her and saved, as she continues to do, dogs, cats and the most challenging of all - the people in her life. Dawns life affirming story grips you from page 1. Thank you Dawn for your honesty, bravery and sheer balls! ...more

Dawn Lawson lives in Northern California with a tolerant roommate, an invisible roommate, a pack of dogs, and a four pound cat who tolerates nothing.

Dink the cat has passed since the publication of this book. She still tolerates nothing.
