A Life-Changing Accident Brings Two Lost Souls Together…
Flirtatious, adventurous Sam seems to have it all, until the day he jumps his bike off a high wall and snaps his spine. Paralyzed, depressed, and angry, he doesn’t have what it takes to deal with the devastating consequences of his risk-taking. But an unlikely path opens when he is chosen to be the “partner” of a trained helper monkey, Webster. As he adjusts to having many of his needs met by a ten-inch-tall monkey, he also begins to bond with Webster’s trainer, Sharon, a woman with a tragic past who is careful to love only the monkeys she trains. With Sam’s encouragement, she begins to trust him and Webster as her family and tries to summon the courage to open herself more deeply to the possibility of love. But when Webster goes missing, Sharon and Sam’s relationship will be tested, as she questions the risk to her heart and her job. Beautifully written, imaginative and compassionate, After Crash is a brilliant illumination of the confusing, inspiring, messy, and creative process of healing the body, mind, and heart.
