Product Description


“This important biography introduces the remarkable young woman who was a devoted soldier, wife, daughter and friend.... Perhaps even more important, it is a fitting tribute to not only Goddard but also to Trooper Karine Blais, the second female Canadian soldier to die, and to the 150 Canadian men lost to the Afghan War as well.” (Winnepeg Free Press)

Sunray is a poignant and inspiring portrait of one woman’s life and the profound choices that set her apart.” (CTV News, Lisa LaFlamme)

“Captain Nichola Goddard’s story is written with such extraordinary detail you can feel Kandahar’s powdery dust and see the tracer fire from Taliban insurgents.” (National Post)
