Blackwell North Amer
Nop's Hope is the long-awaited sequel to the beloved animal classic Nop's Trials.
As Nop's Hope begins, Penny Burkholder is on the road in her battered pickup, earning what money she can on the sheepdog trial circuit. She is fleeing from a terrible tragedy, and her only friend in the world is her dog, Hope, a remarkable Border Collie.
During her hard and dangerous journey, Penny meets two men who fall in love with her: Oren Wright, the steady, dependable Texas sheepman, and Ransome Barlow, laconic, strange, and brilliant with dogs.
At the national finals in Wyoming, these humans and their dogs come together in the final searing test of skill, animal savvy, and love. For when Lewis Burkholder, Penny's father, walks onto the trial field with the great dog Nop at his side, what is at risk is no less than Penny's sanity and soul.
As wise about animals as it is about the mystery of human love, Nop's Hope will be warmly received by those who remember Nop's Trials and by countless others who will encounter this enthralling saga for the first time.
