Tuesday's Promise:One Veteran, One Dog, and Their Bold Quest to Change Lives

Luis Carlos Montalván and Ellis Henican

Former U.S. Army captain Luis Carlos Montalván follows up his bestseller Until Tuesday (2011) with the continuing story of his life as a veteran coping with PTSD. This posthumous sequel reveals the impact of his first book as he traveled the country with his service dog, Tuesday, and met veterans and their families facing the long-term impacts of military service. It is no spoiler to share that Montalván lost his life to suicide in December, and Ellis Henican’s brief afterword, with information about Tuesday’s current home, is a fitting tribute to his friend. Tuesday’s Promise and Montalván’s death are reminders of how much America still owes those who have served our country so faithfully. (Booklist)
