Trevor Greene travelled the world as a journalist and at the age of forty-one, a reservist in the Canadian Forces, decided to travel to Afghanistan, leaving behind his fiancě, Debbie. On March 4, 2006, while on a mission of peace to a remote village in Kandahar Province, a teenage boy under the influence of the Taliban walked up to the soldier and landed a rusty axe in his skull, nearly splitting his brain in half. Despite years of rehabilitation, setbacks and crises, Greene not only learned how to talk and move again but, in July 2011, he stood at his wedding with his bride Debbie at his side. They live in Nanaimo, B.C.

This is an extraordinary book of (as it says on the cover) love, hope and survival.
It needs to be read by military families, by health care workers and brain injury survivors and their families. It is educational and heartwarming.
I commend them both for writing this timely book and for their courage in going beyond just surviving but rather thriving.

Excellent book. Very well-written and done without self-pity or even any negative, vengeful thoughts, but filled instead with love and positive attitude, as well as the determination to do good in the world. Something all of us should read and learn from.

The very compelling story of a brave soldier and his even braver wife, their abiding love, as well as some insight into what makes a Canadian Soldier WANT to serve in a place like Afghanistan. Truly educational and inspiring on so many levels.

Absolutely spell binding, everyone who watched the W-5 special and think they know the story is wrong.
Hope there is another book coming - also liked "Bad Date".
