Publisher's Summary

When Special Forces soldier Jason Morgan was left crippled by a mission that went wrong, battling depression and wheelchair-bound, his wife left him, and overnight he became a paraplegic father with three young boys to raise. He had lost the two very things that defined him: his military service plus his family and marriage.

As the pain spiked to unbearable levels, he agreed to have surgery to block it. But the doctors' promises that he would keep his mobility proved misplaced. After the surgery the pain was less, yet he'd lost the ability to move his legs.

It was then that Jason reached his lowest ebb. But it was then, too, that he heard about a not-for-profit call Canine Companions for Independence (CCI), one that specializes in providing service dogs to wounded veterans. Jason was convinced that his disability was serious enough to qualify him for a service dog and that CCI had just the animal for him.

Yet when he flew to their Oceanside, California, facility to meet his dog, Jason had no idea how much his life was about to change. So low was he that he wished that the airplane carrying him would tumble out of the sky and bring it all to an end. After meeting his black Labrador service dog, Napal, he would never do so again.

This is the story of how Napal enabled Jason to rebuild his life, to reconnect with his family and to find true peace against all the odds.

    "Best book I've listened to in agesssssss"

    The easy way in which a difficult story was told. Sensitively written, amazing story.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Nepal, his character was so well depicted.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    Well I didn't enjoy this scene but I thought the part about the marathon was inspiring.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Has to be Nepal's death.


    Any additional comments?

    Amazing wonderful story. Well done to Jason Morgan and Nepal.

    Story
    "Woe is me"
    Any additional comments?

    So disapointed with this read. There is only so much self pity my ears can handle and after 3 hours my soul couldnt take anymore. No one in the world has as suffered quite as much pain as the main character. No one comes close to the uphill struggle he has endured . The book just seems to be a vent for his narcissistic woe is me attitude to life.

    "I feel like I watched this story unfold!"

    A stunning book that I will never forget! This is a book full of emotion and love, in that it gives a heart felt reminder of how we should make the most of those funny and collect in a bottle moments. Thank You Jason Morgan, you are an inspiration.

    "Emotionally moving"

    As I have a guide dog and understand the importance of such working animals I would recommend this book to all animal lovers, to those who may find life hard sometimes and not forgetting those who have a drive for life. Most especially for animal lovers I would recommend having some tissues to hand by the end of this book for a book like this just as the book Marley and me will touch your heart, it will help you appreciate life and how short and precious it is and not to waste your time fighting and arguing, but to spend it loving and appreciating.
