about this item

Amidst a crisis, Alison feels life’s not worth living, but Buster, a Beagle puppy, changes everything. Acquiring Lily, a Dutch barge, Alison and her husband, Roger, head for the calmness of the inland waterways. Boating with buster, they learn plenty about boisterous Beagles and bothersome boats!

Redundancy triggers a move to Ireland where the characters are larger-than-life, and the lakes so huge they are known as inland seas. They become custodians of an historical property, partake in milestone boating events, and go ice-breaking in the coldest winter for fifty years.

A move to Europe seems to be the chance of a lifetime, but tragedy strikes when Buster develops a debilitating illness. Watching the world go by aboard Lily aids Buster’s recuperation, as they travel through The Netherlands and Germany: spending long summer days on the Mecklenburg Lakes and winter in the former Eastern bloc. Finally, crossing the Baltic Sea entering Danish home waters, and surrounded by those he loves, Buster’s days draw to an end.

Buster’s story flows through the waterways of Europe in this colorfully portrayed, moving book of canine companionship.
