This Manhattan tale of laughter and tears charts the love story between two “complicated” dogs, Harry and Minnie, and the gift of unexpected friendship they gave to their owners, Carol and Martha.

Carol is dying of cancer and needs someone to take care of Harry, who is a great listener but does have a problem with large dogs and hoses! After a disastrous first meeting, when Minnie doesn’t appear to think much of Harry (who is super keen), things slowly improve and before long they are inseparable. And as Carol’s illness progresses, so a new friendship and community blossoms, Carol’s Club. The bonds that grew between them all changed many lives and Carol’s death as well.

In this rich and touching narrative, Martha considers the ways our stories are shaped by the people we meet, and the profound love we can find by opening our hearts to unexpected encounters.

“A beautiful book.” – Jo Good, BBC Radio London

When Harry Met Minnie made me cry and made me dance with joy. It’s an exquisite tale about heartbreak and healing, critters and humans, and the little miracles life hands us when we need them the most.” – Jeannette Walls, New York Times bestselling author of The Glass Castle and Half Broke Horses
