Readers of all ages enjoy being invited into Lucas’ world: his daily routine, his favorite foods, and a delightful courtship with a neighboring Lucas terrier and the beginning of his own family.

In her latest book Lucas Comes to America (published by AuthorHouse), to be released July 1, 2011, Houston author and philanthropist Carolyn Farb reveals one of her most personal friendships: her pet Lucas terrier named Lucas. When the media is overflowing with sad stories of animal cruelty, Lucas Comes to America offers a refreshingly insightful portrait of a purpose driven woman with her best canine pal.

"Caroline is very involved in a number of projects to help others—in education, the arts, the medical field, preservation, and of course, animal rights that look after my constituency. There are many interesting people who visit us on different occasions. She’s gracious about opening our home.

When Caroline’s friends come over, most of them are happy to see me. I’ve had an unfavorable vibe only a couple of times, and I felt it in an instant. You might say the hairs on my back literally stood up. I really frightened those individuals with my growls and posturing. The only other time I go into a defense mode is when Mom and I are watching a show and I hear a dog barking on the television. They sound as though they’re right there in the bedroom with us!"

Readers of all ages enjoy being invited into Lucas’ world: his daily routine, his favorite foods, and a delightful courtship with a neighboring Lucas terrier and the beginning of his own family. Written in Lucas’ voice, Lucas Comes to America displays the relationship of a beloved pet and his caregiver.
