Luke & Forrest - My Saviors, My Salvation by Donna DeMari
Hardcover, 192 pages
Publisher's description: Renowned fashion photographer Donna DeMari has shot the most prominent names in the industry--Naomi, Kate, Heidi, Helena--but it is two names we do not recognize, Luke and Forrest, sibling Labrador retrievers, who have impacted her life most. "At a time when my world seemed to collapse, Luke and Forrest were my source of love and strength and miles of inspiration," says DeMari. "Their loving presence transformed my life from days of darkness to days of joy through their boundless generosity of spirit and the endearing qualities that made two Labs from the same litter as different as night and day, but united in their devotion to me and to each other." This is a deeply moving story, told in word and picture, of love and trust lost, of love and trust regained, of salvation and saviors. It is a tribute to two dogs with big hearts, fierce loyalty and nurturing spirits who carried the author through the most difficult years of her life.
HoofPrints owner Gina Keesling's review:
Having loved and lost a couple Black Labradors in my life, I know how intensely beautiful it is when they look at you with all-knowing, soulful eyes. And I also know that it's nearly impossible to capture this beauty with a camera. Black dogs are notoriously hard to photograph, at all, let alone capture the emotion that eminates from those gold/brown eyes. Donna DeMari has done that, and more. This book is impeccably designed, would be a prize without the story that she tells along with.
