Down through history, dogs have been great friends to humans. Dog owners know how remarkably dogs can adapt. They are intelligent, compassionate, loyal, and protective. SHADOWS POINT TO RAINBOWS is a tribute to one German shepherd, who was providentially assigned to a young man living in north-central Oregon. With a tap at the door, “Champion” came into young Jed Franklin's life. His mother faithfully recounts how this loving and faithful friend stood by his master, helping him recover from a life-threatening, life-changing accident when he was eight years old so he could grow into manhood.
This touching and faith-building story about a gift of God wrapped in fur was written to share lessons and encouragements from the providential events of the life of a boy growing up with his dog. Rather than withdrawing into himself, the young man was able to see the rainbows of life that follow the clouds.
Linda Franklin lives in the Peace Country of Northern British Columbia. She enjoys writing, is a gifted illustrator, and devoted grandmother. Her first book in this series is entitled Rainbow in the Flames.
