Description

"A very special story about life and love and courage."
MERLIN OLSEN, SPORTSCASTER
John Harding had a high-powered career, a loving wife, and a beautiful son. He's lost it all and has returned to his home town of Boland, New Hampshire, teetering on the brink of suicide. But an old friend asks John to manage his old Little League team, the Angels. Reluctantly, he agrees, and meets a hopeless player who bears a striking resemblance to his dead son--and through their extroardinary relationship, John finds the wisdom in living that he thought had slipped beyond his grasp forever....

    I read this book to my husband on Vacation and we both didn't want to put it down. We both laughed , cried and cheered them on. We loved this book. Og Mandino has a way of capturing the reader and making you become a part of the story. The last page is like losing your good friends.
  • I read it in one sitting!!

    I could not put this down once I started. It was a journey, I was engrossed in the story by the writing style of Mandino. I started reading it about 9 pm and figured I would read till about midnight. At 6 am, I turned the last page. I literally could not put the book down once I read the first chapter. It's like the movies that you hate to get up and go to the bathroom, you might miss something. I would read a part and then go back to make sure I had read correctly so I wouldn't forget the struggles of the coach and the players. Riveting!!
