2013 Winner ? Amazon Breakthrough Novel ? Award General Fiction
In an America ravaged by the Great Depression, a talented but ragtag baseball team sets out to change the world. Barnstorming the back roads and dusty ballparks of the Midwest, the Racine Robins rally fans to the populist cause, raising money for soup kitchens and strike funds even as they thrill small-town crowds and dazzle opponents on the field. Yet winning the hearts and minds of the people turns out to be easier for the players than facing the twin seductions of love and money, conflicting desires that threaten to derail everything they are fighting to achieve.
After a sudden April snowstorm forces the Robins to find shelter in the Rockefeller hotel, the team begins to pull apart. Tensions mount?one player falls in love for the first time?and old friendships threaten to unravel as the men face temptations and ambition. Can this tough, tight-knit group stay true to its great cause when dreams and longing come knocking?
L'autore: Ken Moraff grew up in Ithaca, New York, and now lives near Boston, where he has been an environmental lawyer and Red Sox fan for more than twenty years. He and his wife, Karyn, have three children. This is his first novel.
