  9. This book made me realise how lucky I was when I was younger and how different life is for different people. But what stands out more than anything is the courage and bravery of Gill. From a baby to the woman who never gave up. Her past did not haunt her present instead she braced every opportunity and made life bearable for thousands of Thai Dogs and cats. Makes you want to be a better person for just knowing her. A true legend.

  10. Have purchased, but havenโ€™t read it yet.

  12. Inspiring story of extraordinary lady.

  13. What an truly amazing book about an inspirational, selfless lady

  14. Just Gill was a brilliant and moving book from the first to the last page.
    It certainly prompted me to re evaluate life as to what really matters in this heartless cruel society we live in. Gill was a selfless compassionate and caring person who rose above adversity throughout most of her life. SOI dog foundation co founded by Gill and her husband John have built up the most amazing dog and cat rescue sanctuary on Phuket in Thailand. They worked tirelessly to save these beautiful street dogs and cats from human cruelty and battled to stop the appalling dog and cat meat trade in Asia. Sadly Gill lost her life but John carries on Gills amazing legacy.

  15. You never know the true story of quiet unassuming heroโ€™s like Gill & John unless you have the chance to do so through a wonderful book like this.
    Two people who inspire so many through their total dedication to the cause, being able to share their story like this is a privilege indeed.
    Beautiful book about overcoming massive challenges and facing tragedy with pride and dignity because at the end of the day it has always been about the animals.

  16. John and Gill Dalley have changed the face of animal welfare in Thailand and beyond. They are true heroes!

  17. Gill & John Dalley have done more for dogs and cats in Thailand and other Asian countries than you would believe possible.
    Treating thousands of injured and mistreated animals, spaying and neutering thousands more, I believe the total of animals they have helped is heading towards 500,000.
    What could have been a relaxing retirement, became a quest to improve the lives of dogs and cats in an area of the world where their lives are cheap and disposable.
    This book gives you a glimpse into their lives, caring for those who others don’t even acknowledge.

  18. And now her husband John is getting an MBE! Gill and John are truly inspirational. A wonderful book, sharing Gill’s life; her love for the animals shines through.

  19. Inspiration โค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ

  20. Gill deserves this for a truly amazing book and everything they do to saving the animals in Thailand sadly Gill passed away but her legacy lives on with John and all the workers so inspiring…. ๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿ•๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿˆ ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’•

  21. Such a courageous and selfless lady, who has created a better world for these helpless animals.
    An amazing story.

  26. Gill’s book is one you’ll zip through. What she wrote came from the heart. You are gripped and led through her action-packed life from Phuket to England and back again, as her story unfolds with John. What a duo!
