Cagney Nowak is writing a novel around the 1905 shooting death of baseball legend Ty Cobb’s father by his mother just a week before Ty was called up by the Detroit Tigers. Although she was acquitted by an all-male jury on the grounds the shooting was accidental, the townspeople of Royston, Georgia, thought otherwise.
The Cobb Legacy is the story of a man’s efforts to connect with his dying father, a World War II veteran suffering from PTSD, while coming to terms with his own adulterous affair and impending divorce, doubting that love with an old friend can be his.
“Scandal to Love…”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Karen S. Lindgren
Even though my interest in baseball is only fair, I was caught up in this story of love and forgiveness built around it. It is very well written as it moved me to think more deeply of life and living it fully. It definitely is a prompt for thinking about those important aspects of life – love and the application of them in my life as well as engrossing and entertaining. I found I love this story so much that I have read it at least 3 to 4 times! Thank you J. Conrad Guest for another intriguing and uniquely special book!
