Yes, I was so surprised by this novel. Loved the story, loved the main character. I was worried it would be too sad, but it was quite lovely.
?? Maybe the Knitting Circle.
She seemed to tell the story as though it happened to her.
I almost did....all in one day....Saturday Chores.
I was out of audible credits and found this on sale. So pleased.
Not well read...irritating...yawn.
I didn't read reviews...I was in a rush. Don't judge a book on it's cover.
I listen to audio books all the time. The Hope is the best ever.
If I were a mom of a potential Pac-10 basketball player - and had influence - I'd send my kid to play for the Beavers. Craig Robinson is a great coach and his book explains that he comes by coaching somewhat naturally via his wonderful parents. I am bit biased, as I live in Corvallis, but this guy is the real deal.
While, there is a a great deal about his sister and brother-in-law in the book, the book's interest comes not from his relationship with the first family but from his love for his whole family. The inspiration comes from his success attributed to his family and his own great dedication, determination and discipline along with a love for the game.
Our family listened to this book on the way to Portland, about a 1.5 hour trip. We loved it and hit repeat. Just as warning, there is a bit about boys announcing the girls on the bra list...but our 6 year old understood the teasing "boy" nature of this.
Great characters, we all have a "Mike".
