VINELAND — Cumberland County College’s One Book-One College 2014-15 reading campaign was launched recently with the selection of Until Tuesday: A Wounded Warrior and the Golden Retriever Who Saved Him by Luis Carlos Montalvan, with Bret Witter.

Now in its 11th year, CCC's successful One Book-One College concept was designed to get the campus and the community to bond by discussing relevant themes covered in a single book. Members of the community are also urged to read the book.

Until Tuesday is a heartwarming story of how Tuesday, a lovable golden retriever, changes a former soldier's life forever.

A highly decorated captain in the U.S. Army, Luis Montalvan never backed down from a challenge during his two tours of duty in Iraq. After returning home from combat, however, his physical wounds and crippling post-traumatic stress disorder began to take their toll. He wondered if he would ever recover.

Then Luis met Tuesday, a sensitive golden retriever trained to assist the disabled. Tuesday had lived among prisoners and at a home for troubled boys, and he found it difficult to trust in or connect with a human being... until Luis.

Until Tuesday is the story of how two wounded warriors, who had given so much and suffered the consequences, found salvation in each other. It is a story about war and peace, injury and recovery, psychological wounds and spiritual restoration. But more than that, it is a story about the love between a man and dog, and how they healed each other's souls.

CCC's One Book-One College program is highlighted each year with an on-campus visit by the author. Montalvan and Tuesday will visit Cumberland County College's campus on Wednesday, Oct. 29.
