Great Texas story.
Loved the narrators voice.
I heard Stephen Harrigan talk about writing this book and was drawn to the story. Loved hearing him talk about the characters as they developed throughout the story.
One of the primary topics of this book is baseball which I used to find very boring. I'm not saying I'll become a baseball fan, but I do know more about the psychology of the game. The family, religious upbringing, the struggles, and the contrasts of the characters made this book a home run for me. Being raised a strict Southern Baptist, I totally understood the feelings of everyone in the family and how they reacted to the doctrine of the church. It warmed my heart to see how those Bible stories, songs and even prayers were the foundation that held the characters together when they were presented with a difficult situation.
Loved the calmness of the narrator's voice.
I'm not one to read a book twice, but this would be the one. I've recommended it to several so far, and will continue to do so.
No, no comparisons on any of Jonathan Cahn's books
At the end of the book, he talked about how God is still waiting for as many as possible to believe in a higher power.
Amazing story. It had to be true, who could have made up such a story line.
When Donna moved away and made peace with her life and how different it had been. It is admirable that she didn't separate herself completely from the rest of the family and that came to accept the differences.
I would highly recommend this audiobook to anyone. It is actually a Young Adult book that any person would enjoy, young or old.
I was afraid this book would make me cry, but it did not. The topic is terribly sad, but it is told in a matter of fact way. Very good story.
