Christine Sullivan, bestselling author of the book "Saving Cinnamon: The Amazing True Story of a Missing Military Puppy and the Desperate Attempt to Bring Her Home" has agreed to write a piece for The Animal Anthology Project.
Her book, Saving Cinnamon, is set against the backdrop of the war in Afghanistan, and chronicles the love story of Navy Reservist Mark Feffer and a stray puppy he bonded with while stationed outside of Kandahar. When Mark is about to return stateside, he decides to adopt Cinnamon and sets up her transport back to the United States. But the unthinkable happens: Cinnamon is abandoned by the dog handler who was supposed to bring her home and disappears without a trace. Mark and his family start a desperate search for the puppy that lasts forty-four days and ends dramatically when Mark and Cinnamon are finally reunited. This is a touching memoir told by Mark's sister, Christine, who initiated the rescue efforts.
Christine Sullivan has worked in sales and technology for decades before finding her true passion in life—caring for animals in need. She initiated the search for Cinnamon and was instrumental in bringing her home to the U.S. She is the co-founder of New Hope For Animals and continues to work with Operation Baghdad Pups. She now lives in Vermont with her family and dogs.
We are very excited to have Christine Sullivan as part of the "Animal Anthology team". More information is to come.
