“A Compelling Story”

Five Star Review on Amazon By Deborah L Wyatt

A very good first novel. The main character is compelling, and we learn a great deal about life and human nature from his journey. We also learn about golf, which was very interesting. It’s not necessary to like golf or understand it to like this novel. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
