Detective Chief Inspector Jonah Porter is a hero: his life was changed forever when he was paralysed by a gunshot from an unkwn assailant but, against the odds, he has succeeded in resuming his career in the Police Service. To the outside world he appears confident and capable, almost unaffected by his disability. This vel views Jonah's life through the medium of his favourite hymns, revealing beneath his self-assured exterior, his vulnerability and dependence on others. Each chapter in his life shows us new insight into Jonah's world both before and after his injury, exploring a range of social issues. This challenging book invites its readers to reassess their own attitudes towards disability, showing us that Jonah's very vulnerability has given him new strength through his friends and family.
