Praise for Mark Winik’s Debut Novel ‘The Dog Healers’

FINALLY!  A truly powerful heroine. 


Mark Winik’s debut novel is the suspense packed story of a fierce young healer named Isabella

who can breathe life into ailing dogs and turn race horses into champions.

In the tradition of Eva Peron, she ignores her Argentinian culture’s ideas about female roles, plunging  into the shadowy reaches of the horse racing world where thugs would turn her gift into riches.  To her,  money is just the means to her dream: creating a haven for all dogs, be they wretched, ill or aggressive.  Isabella wields wit and charisma among society ladies, twisting gold-braceleted arms for donations,  exerting a still greater spell on men. This includes her handsome protégé Carlos, who yearns  for the  love Isabella shares with her dogs.
But her dogs are her allies as villainous threats mount. 


Isabella faces the fight of her life, but when you’ve got dogs at your back,  you’re never alone.
