Review: Steal Away Home by @BillyCoffey #tlcbooktours

by Susan Roberts

Steal Away Home starts during Owen's first and probably only Big League baseball game. His entire life has been focused on baseball - it's the one thing that kept him close to his dad and the one thing in his life that he knows he excels at. Why then is he 29 and just playing in his first major league game after years in the minors?

Somewhere along the way, he fell in love and that affected his laser focus on baseball. Michaela was a girl from the 'wrong side of the tracks' in a town that was very divided - the haves and the have-nots didn't mix, not in the school cafeteria and not even in the town church. So Owen and Michaela had to hide their feelings and meet in the woods to talk. He wants to protect her and she doesn't want to be protected - especially after a religious vision on prom night when she feels that her purpose in life has been revealed.

Steal Away Home is a beautifully written story about baseball and love. It skips back and forth between the Major league game and Owen's past and interestingly, the author doesn't use chapter headings but he uses innings - top of the 3rd, bottom of the 3rd, etc. Even if you aren't a real lover of baseball (and I'm not) this is still a great read - beautifully written and thought-provoking.
