Following the success of his New York Times bestseller, Until Tuesday, Iraq War veteran Luis Carlos Montalván took to the road with his beloved Golden Retriever service dog, Tuesday, to advocate for America's wounded warriors and for each other.

Luis's first book sparked a national conversation about service dogs and PTSD. In this spectacular new memoir, he and Tuesday brought their healing mission to the next level, showing how these beautifully trained animals can assist soldiers, veterans, and many others with disabilities. They rescued a forgotten Tuskegee airman, battled obstinate VA bureaucrats, and provided solace to troubled war heroes coast-to-coast. Everywhere these two went, they highlighted the miraculous talents of service dogs.

As Luis and Tuesday celebrated exhilarating victories, a grave obstacle threatened to derail their life-saving campaign: though Luis had made great progress battling his own PTSD, his physical wounds left him wheelchair-bound. He was forced to decide whether to amputate his leg and carry on with a bionic prosthesis. Even as he struggled with this dramatic decision, he and ten-year-old Tuesday prepared to welcome a female Golden Retriever puppy to their all-male pack.

As this stirring memoir neared publication, Luis Montalván took his own life in December 2016, another terrible tragedy of the invisible wounds of war. This book is 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.
