In the aftermath of war, a Navy SEAL finds faith, hope, and love. Howard Wasdin, author of SEAL Team Six: Memoirs of an Elite Navy SEAL Sniper (22 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list), survived the firestorm made famous in Black Hawk Down only to return to a world without support, without a mission, and soon without his family. Wounded in Mogadishu and facing a torturous journey of rehabilitation and recovery, he came home to find his marriage falling apart and his world upended. When he met Debbie, an accountant emerging from her own trial by fire, he realized this might be his last hope, and the two together began a journey of rediscovering their faith in God and their ability to trust in God's goodness. The Last Rescue is an unforgettable tale of brokenness and healing, going deep into the firing line of modern warfare, through the agony of broken marriages, and onto a path of redemption and love. With a clear-eyed view of the inevitability of heartache and the power of God's faithfulness, Howard and Debbie remind us that no matter what our circumstances, we should never, ever, give up hope. 1.

This is the inspiring true story of the first amputee to return to active combat in Iraq. They put a price on his head. They did everything they could to disrupt his mission. Finally, when an antitank mine tore off his right foot, the warriors of jihad in Iraq thought they had neutralized one of their most resourceful, determined foes. They were wrong. Refusing to let his injury stop him, Captain David Rozelle roared back into action, returning to Iraq as commander of an armored cavalry troop. He became the first amputee in recent military history to resume a dangerous command on the same battlefield. In Back in Action: An American Soldier's Story of Courage, Faith, and Fortitude, Rozelle tells the whole gripping story: from the day he had to tell his pregnant wife that he was going to war (Valentine's Day, 2003) and deployed for Operation Iraqi Freedom, to the fateful day four months later when a land mine tore off his right foot, and then through months of agonizing rehabilitation to his final triumphant recertification as "fit for duty". Rozelle, who has been awarded the Bronze Star with Valor and the Purple Heart, speaks with brisk frankness about his post-amputation battles and the gritty determination that carried him through it all. He recounts his inspiring battle through rehabilitation, as he learned to walk with a prosthetic foot and did his utmost to prove he still had the stuff to be a soldier: completing five sprint-distance triathlons, an Olympic-distance triathlon, the New York City Marathon, and skiing, snowboarding, and mountain climbing through Disabled Sports USA. Back in Action is an astonishing story of courage, determination, heroism, and bedrock patriotism. It is a stirring reminder of the commitment every American should have to the cause of freedom, if we hope to continue to enjoy that freedom. It's an extraordinary and inspiring story of devotion to duty overcoming all obstacles. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Patrick Lawlor.

A senior living in the future finds that he is on the wrong side of the law and has become a criminal because of his outdated convictions. His entire mind-set and lifestyle have made him a person of interest to the rulers of the new world in which he lives. Progressively marginalized almost to the point of extinction by new laws and requirements of an all-powerful government, his life is difficult. As he goes about doing what he needs to do to survive, he finds himself instructing and helping many normal everyday people who oppose the state mandate requiring all to be branded with marks on their hands or foreheads. Clinging to an old book, which has long been a capital offense to own or disseminate, he finds that its words give him comfort and understanding. He is eventually arrested and taken to a state-run compound for "rehabilitation". There he discovers the mysterious power that the words of the book have, as he becomes the leader of a prison escape and mass exodus to the mountains. So begins the greatest testing of his faith that he has ever known. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christopher Glyn. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/blak/009804/bk_blak_009804_sample.mp3.

Thousands have been wounded in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Five have survived quadruple-amputee injuries. This is one soldier's story. Thousands of soldiers die every year to defend their country. United States Army Staff Sergeant Travis Mills was sure that he would become another statistic when, during his third tour of duty in Afghanistan, he was caught in an IED blast four days before his 25th birthday. Against the odds, he lived, but at a severe cost - Travis became one of only five soldiers from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to survive a quadruple amputation. Suddenly forced to reconcile with the fact that he no longer had arms or legs, Travis was faced with a future drastically different from the one he had imagined for himself. He would never again be able to lead his squad, stroke his fingers against his wife's cheek, or pick up his infant daughter. Travis struggled through the painful and anxious days of rehabilitation so that he could regain the strength to live his life to the fullest. With enormous willpower and endurance, the unconditional love of his family, and a generous amount of faith, Travis shocked everyone with his remarkable recovery. Even without limbs, he still swims, dances with his wife, rides mountain bikes, and drives his daughter to school. Travis inspires thousands every day with his remarkable journey. He doesn't want to be thought of as wounded. "I'm just a man with scars," he says, "living life to the fullest and best I know how." 1. Language: English. Narrator: Travis Mills.

Will a troubled past cause Norah to abandon her chance at true love? Professional snowboarder Sterling Maughan has sequestered himself in his family cabin in the exclusive mountain community above Gold Valley, Montana, after a devastating fall that ended his career. Lost, with no direction and no motivation, the last thing he wants is company. But Norah Watson has other plans for the cabin. Not only does she clean Sterling's cabin, she's a counselor at Silver Creek, a teen rehabilitation center at the base of the mountain, and she brings her girls up to the cabin every 12 weeks. She senses that Sterling's lost more than his chance at another gold medal, and she feels a pull to help him. She doesn't have much to give, as she's the full-time caretaker of her mentally ill mother and her three half brothers, but for Sterling she invests the time. When Sterling finds out there's a job for an at-risk counselor at Silver Creek, he asks Norah to drive him back and forth. He learns to ride horses and use equine therapy to help his boys - and himself. The more time they spend together, the more convinced Norah is to never tell Sterling about her troubled past, let him see her house on the wrong side of the tracks, or meet her mother. But Sterling is interested in all things Norah, and as his body heals, so does his faith. Will Norah be able to trust Sterling so they can have a chance at true love? 1. Language: English.
