So I read a really good novel the other day called “Stealing Home” by Allison Pittman. It tells the story of four different characters, who all come from very different lifestyles and how they come together. Duke is a professional baseball player who is trying to overcome alcoholism and is hiding away in a small town during his recovery. Ned Clovis is a local business owner who has secretly been in love with Ellie Jane since they were children. A freak childhood illness cause Ned to lose his hearing, but Ellie Jane and most of the townspeople have blamed her for his deafness. Last is Morris, a twelve year old black boy who is trying to work his way out of town. “Stealing Home” brings these characters together in wonderfully tragic story. So check this book out.
