Book Review: Alive Day by Tom Sullivan

alive-day-tom-sullivanIn Alive Day (Christian Fiction Series) by Tom Sullivan, with an introduction by Betty White (yes, that Betty White), injured war veteran Antwone Carver learns to live again, after a devastating injury he suffers in Iraq. When he comes home and hears the news that he’s paralyzed, he wants to give up. But with the help of his therapist Brendan, and the therapist’s seeing eye dog, Nelson, he eventually learns there’s a reason to keep going. It’s not an easy road for either of the men, but as Antwone regains his desire to live, Brendan learns a few things about himself as well.

The author, Tom Sullivan, is an actor/author who is blind, like his character Brendan. The story is based in part on a true story, including the character Nelson, who is patterned after a very special guide dog that was with Sullivan for years. It is an inspiring book – sad at times, but uplifting as well.

Through the book, Sullivan hopes to bring attention to the needs of veterans once they return home. In fact the book is dedicated to all the men & women who serve on behalf of our country.

There’s a really nice made-for-tv movie about Tom Sullivan’s early life, called If You Could See What I Hear, in case anyone would like to learn a bit more about him. He’s an interesting man, and Betty White is a lovely woman who’s always thinking of animals.
