Calling all animal lovers and those who are not.

This book cronicles the dream of one very special lady whose love for animals all great and small goes beyond what most of us could not even apprehend.

Ellie Laks tells her own story of growing up in a family that did not understand or support her love and devotion towards animals.

She had a dream to one day be able to rescue, care and provide a safe and loving home for abused, abandoned or neglected animals.

Her dream is eventually realized with "My Gentle Barn", a sanctuary where animals heal and troubled children see first hand that a little love and understanding can change their lives for ever.

Truly a wonderful story, well told and full of love and compassion.
