Eight years ago, Kathleen Hart was diagnosed with breast cancer. While recuperating, she came across a small whitewashed cottage for sale in Wigtown, Scotland. Driving hundreds of miles on nothing more than a few photographs and an inkling, she bought it that very same day. Devorgilla Days is an inspiring tale of one woman's remarkable journey, a celebration of community, and a call-to-arms for anyone who has ever dreamt of starting over. A few years ago Alexis Fleming was bedridden with a chronic illness - but her beloved dog, Maggie.
Alexis fought her way back to health with Maggie by her side, only for Maggie to die of lung cancer two years so Alexis decided to start an animal hospice in her memory. No Life Too Small is the joyful and inspiring story of the world's first animal hospice, celebrating the power and beauty of nature, the strength of the human and animal spirit, and the importance of love, friendship and community.
