With Napal among us, we feel like a family again, one blessed with a dad who smiles.
Nearly killed in a secret military operation in South America, Special Forces warrior Jason Morgan awoke in a hospital to find his life completely capsized. As he struggled to come to terms with chronic pain and paralysis from the waist down, his wife left him to raise their three young boys on his own. And that is when this amazing story's heroes - who include Jason himself, a service dog named Napal, and a volunteer for the Canine Companions for Independence - begin to shine. Keep the tissues handy and prepare to be inspired by the generosity of spirit (both canine and human) on display in this earnestly heartfelt memoir. (CH)
