Captain Trevor Greene’s life was forever changed on March 4, 2006 when he was serving as a peacekeeper with Canada’s mission in Afghanistan. At a routine shura, or meeting with village elders, Green was attacked with an axe-blow to his head leaving him on the brink of death. The brain injury was so severe that the odds were against this well-known journalist, Canadian solider, father to daughter Grace, and fiancée to Debbie Lepore. But he survived.
W5 follows Greene through four years and hundreds of hours of rehabilitation; he never gives up on his challenging road to recovery. Sandie Rinaldo shares the triumphant tale of a hero who wished for a fairy-tale wedding, where he could stand at the altar to receive his bride. Rinaldo follows his quest – with badly misshapen feet and the clock ticking toward the nuptials – will he stand to see his bride down the aisle or will he fall short of his goal? Find out in this moving story of love, loyalty and commitment.
