Julie Barton’s ‘Dog Medicine’ Featured in Oprah Magazine

Dog Medicine

Here’s something spectacular. Julie Barton’s wonderful memoir Dog Medicine, which details Julie’s recovery from severe depression through the help of an animal healer, has been featured as a recommended memoir on Wow! Here’s what Oprah’s team had to say: “This is a moving canine love tale. In her early twenties, Barton seemed like any twenty-something woman working in New York—until the depression building up under the surface engulfed her. In childhood, her older brother had bullied her incessantly
; more recently, her boyfriend had cheated. But nothing was harsher than her own internalized judgments. Therapy and medication helped, but it was the unconditional love of a puppy named Bunker that made the biggest difference. ”
Read the full review at this link. And make sure to follow the Dog Medicine Facebook page for all the news about the Penguin Random House worldwide relaunch of the book on July 19. It’s going to be really exciting.
