Until Tuesday
A heartwarming dog story like no other: Tuesday, a lovable golden retriever, changes a former soldier's life forever. A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalván never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home from combat, however, his physical wounds and crippling post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. He wondered if he would ever recover. Then Luis met Tuesday, a sensitive golden retriever trained to assist the disabled. Tuesday had lived among prisoners and at a home for troubled boys, and he found it difficult to trust in or connect with a human being--until Luis. Until Tuesday is the story of how two wounded warriors, who had given so much and suffered the consequences, found salvation in each other. It is a story about war and peace, injury and recovery, psychological wounds and spiritual restoration. But more than that, it is a story about the love between a man and dog, and how, together, they healed each other's souls.

Since Tuesday
The follow-up to his first memoir, New York Times bestseller Until Tuesday--a heartwarming story of a golden retriever who changes a former soldier's life forever. In a spectacular, deeply intimate memoir that will advance the national conversation about PTSD and the near-miraculous benefits of service dog companionship, Iraq war veteran Luis and his service dog Tuesday take their mission to the next level. They rescue a forgotten Tuskegee airman, battle obstinate VA bureaucrats, and bring solace to troubled war heroes coast-to-coast. And wherever they go, they highlight the extraordinary talents of working dogs. As they fight for the rights of veterans, service dogs, and all people with disabilities, a grave obstacle threatens to derail them: though Luis has made great progress battling his own PTSD, his physical wounds risk leaving him wheelchair-bound, and he must decide whether to amputate his leg and carry on with a bionic prosthesis. Yet the road they walk is also lined with stirring celebrations, and as Tuesday turns ten, these two friends for life begin the tender process of welcoming a new puppy to their pack. Since Tuesday is an inspiring story of love, service, teamwork, and the powerful bond between humans and canines.

Tuesday's Promise
Following the success of his New York Times bestseller, Until Tuesday, Iraq War veteran Luis Carlos Montalván advocated for America's wounded warriors and the healing powers of service dogs. In this spectacular new memoir, Luis and Tuesday brought their healing mission to the next level, showing how these beautifully trained animals could assist soldiers, veterans, and many others with mental and physical disabilities. They rescued a forgotten Tuskegee airman, battled obstinate VA bureaucrats, and provided solace to war heroes coast-to-coast. As Luis and Tuesday celebrated exhilarating victories, a grave obstacle threatened their work. Luis made great progress battling his own PTSD, but his physical wounds got so bad that he was wheelchair-bound. He needed to decide whether to amputate his leg and carry on with a bionic prosthesis. Even as he struggled with dramatic emotional and physical changes, ten-year-old Tuesday was lovingly by his side through it all. Luis' death in December 2016 was another terrible tragedy of the invisible wounds of war. This book was his last letter of love to his best friend, Tuesday, and to veterans, readers, friends, and fellow dog lovers everywhere. Never more timely than now, Tuesday's Promise is an inspiring story of love, service, teamwork, and the remarkable bond between humans and canines.

Until Tuesday
Until Tuesday, Luis Carlos Montalvan could barely walk half a mile. Until Tuesday, simply riding the subway was a terrifying ordeal. Luis sometimes struggled just to get out of bed. Because Tuesday isn't just any dog; he's a service dog, specially trained to care for his owner. And with his golden coat and sensitive eyes, he's also the kind of dog that you can't help but love. When Captain Montalvan retired from seventeen years of service in the US Army, suffering from physical disabilities, agoraphobia and post-traumatic stress disorder, it was Tuesday who brought him back from the brink. This is the story of how a soldier fought back from the devastation of being injured in action, and how an incredible dog became his protector, his companion and, ultimately, his saviour.
