Based in part on a true story, Alive Day is an inspiring, affirming tale about the power of love, loyalty and living full-out. A Marine's "Alive Day" celebrates survival after an almost certain death. It's a time of hope and joy. But Antwone Carver’s isn’t celebrating. Home from war but not quite whole, Antwone’s having trouble dealing with his new physical limitations. Psychiatrist Brenden McCarthy can relate. He thought he’d lost everything when he was blinded in a mountain climbing accident. But with God’s help, he’s now living a satisfying life and feels called to help Antwone do the same. Problem is, he’s hit one dead end after another trying to reach this bitter young Marine. Enter Brenden’s big-hearted and courageous black Labrador, Nelson.With boundless energy, contagious optimism, and a big heart, Nelson shows them both what it means to live a truly abundant life. The journey Brenden began in the heartwarming novel Together continues with Alive Day. Download and start listening now!

    " I noticed someone had shelved this as "no-desire-to-finish." I like that description. I send them back if I don't like them. And that's where this one went, back to the library. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 3/31/2012

    " I would read another book from this author. A story about a blind man, his dog, and the paralized man he tries to help. Good story, but not as much depth as I expected for a book that is partially based on a true story. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kevin | 1/21/2012

    " Poor writing. Boring story. Unrealistic characters. Never for a moment did I lose myself in the story and think these events might actually be happening. I always knew I was being preached to - and badly at that. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Tenna | 11/13/2011

    " I SO wanted to enjoy this book but....the writing was AWFUL. Short, choppy, mood jumping, no character development, etc. Would not recommend. "

    " Blind psychiatrist, Brendan, and Iraq war vet, Antwone, form a bond through therapy that brings Antwone to terms with his disabilities. Little suspenseful twist at the end with Nelson, the Black Lab. Just an OK story - fast read. "

    " I worked with Tom on this book. Dogs are amazing creatures and are such a big part of Tom's life. "

    " Good book about how a blind psychiatrist and his seeing-eye dog help another injured Marine cope with his paralysis and PTSD and find new meaning in his life.
    A very quick read.
