Saving Shilohby Phyllis Reynolds Naylor
Synopses & Reviews
andlt;Bandgt;DOES EVERYONE DESERVE A SECOND CHANCE?andlt;/Bandgt; andlt;BRandgt; Marty's parents think so — even Judd Travers, whose history of drinking and violence keeps Marty from completely trusting that his beloved dog, Shiloh, will always be safe from Judd. andlt;BRandgt; "Some people just seem to attract trouble," Marty's Ma says, and Judd attracts the sort of trouble that makes it hard to believe he's really changed. First, the police find the body of a man who'd fought with Judd. Then, a vicious attack forces Judd to kill one of his dogs. But just when it seems Judd will never be able to escape the shadow of his past, a dangerous accident gives him the chance to prove himself. Can Judd Travers actually become a hero?
In the "masterfully written conclusion to a sterling trilogy" ("Booklist" starred review), Marty and his family try to help Judd change his mean ways, even while rumors persist that he has killed a man.
"The final volume in what is certain to become a classic trilogy, "Saving Shiloh" completes the story of Marty Preston; his beagle, Shiloh; and his neighbor, Judd Travers, begun in (Newbery Medal-winning) "Shiloh" and continued in "Shiloh Season". Marty and his family try to help Judd change his mean ways, treating him with respect and trusting him, even while rumors persist in the community that he has murdered a man. . . . (A) powerful story of redemption".--"School Library Journal".
