Enjoyable, more so than Latakia which I really quite liked, and it hung together better than the other book. Line-editing was good, although it needs someone to nitpick the occasional word choice.
Likeable characters, even though Rett makes the stupidest decisions an adult man could ever think of making. Felt authentic to this non-baseball-fan, although I wonder if real-life MLB managers are as tolerant as George of skittish employees!
Well worth what I paid for it, and I recommend it to people wanting a solid love story against a backdrop of difficult family relationships.

This is a very well written and entertaining novel, as is everything that JF Smith writes. It can be read as a stand alone work or as a sequel to Smith's previous novel, "Falling Off the Face of the Earth." All the main characters from FOTFOTE are back; Jimmy, Brick, Jerry, Carole Ann, Zee and Cory. But this newest Smith work concentrates on Rett Dougherty's foibles and successes and details his love affair with Cory. It's a fun sidebar to see how Cory's Major League Baseball career begins and blossoms with Rett by his side. As with all JF Smith's novels, there isn't much graphic sex; more is left up to your imagination. But I still wholeheartedly endorse this beautiful story. Thank you again Mr. Smith--as always please keep on writing! I will forever be your most devoted fan.
