HOME RUN by Travis Thrasher
Based on the major motion picture starring Vivica A. Fox and Scott Elrod, Home Run is an inspirational story of the hope and freedom God offers each of us. Baseball star Cory Brand knows how to win. But off the field, he’s spiraling out of control. Haunted by old wounds and regrets, his future seems as hopeless as his past. Until one moment—one mistake—changes everything.
To save his career, Cory must go back to the town where it all began. His plan is simple: coach the local Little League team, complete a recovery program, and get out as fast as possible. Instead, he runs headfirst into memories he can’t escape ... and the love he left behind. Faced with a second chance he never expected, Cory embarks on a journey of faith, transformation and redemption. And along the way, he discovers a powerful truth: No one is beyond the healing of God.
If you're in the market for a really good book you should get this one! Cory Brand is a famous baseball player. What most folks don't know is that he's a drinker and his life is out of control. Growing up with an alcoholic father and experiencing abuse as a child he blames it all on good ole dad.
Travis did an excellent job of detailing alcoholism, he's such a talented writer. This is a beautifully written, emotional, story of hitting the bottom and rising again as one experiences God's grace and power.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
