Book of the Month
When John and Gill Dalley travelled from their home in Britain on a dream holiday to a popular holiday resort in Thailand, little did they realise that they would become involved in the tragic tale of a street dog called Naga.
This fateful meeting led them to taking the life changing decision to swap their lives in rural Yorkshire and embark on new adventures in Phuket, dedicating the rest of their days to campaigning against Asia’s dog meat trade and setting up the world famous Soi Dog Foundation.
Life on this idyllic island proved only the beginning of a series of challenging life lessons for this “ordinary” couple as they faced their toughest years together.
This touching true story reveals the extraordinary experiences John and his beloved wife Gill shared (with joint memories from Gill‘s diary and personal reminiscences from SDF UK President Donna Freelove) from the day they first met to Gill‘s tragic death from cancer in 2017.
This extraordinary story of an extraordinary woman, the legacy Gill Dalley left for the street dogs and cats of Thailand will inspire animal lovers worldwide.
Humour is a genre that should bring a smile to a reader’s face, enhancing a strong story. It’s challenging and fun to write.
Many writers are drawn to using humour, but many fail to use it effectively. Maintaining the balance between the plot, characterisation and use of amusing witticisms within a story is difficult.
