Dr. Brendan McCarthy is a blind psychiatrist trying to help Antwone Carver, a recently injured marine whose depression has reached a dangerous level. Brendan can identify with Antwone's pain because he, too, had difficulty adjusting to life as a blind man after his own tragic accident. It is a dog named Nelson, though, who teaches both men inspirational lessons about true loyalty and sacrifice and the joys of an "Alive Day." VERDICT Anyone who loves Marley and Me and other dog stories will enjoy this tale, which is a bit sappy but perfect for a summer afternoon at the beach.
