5.0 out of 5 starsA touching journey to finding one's self
Byhonest Abeon 21 June 2014 - Published on Amazon.com
Mike Reuther has arrived as a serious novelist. I was moved to tears by this simple yet elegant tale of finding what really matters in life. There were many lines and moments that were very touching. In this short novel. Reuther manages to create a vivid sense of what life is like in a small blue collar central Pa. town.( a setting for several of his novels). His characters are real and engaging; there is no contrivance. These are people you may have had limited contact with,but you know them nevertheless. Tortured by what others may want or expect from you( a wife who wants the trappings of success) and what your dreams tell you to do, Nick Grimes evolves from observing others. The loving advice from his dad("Baseball, you might say, was for us a bridge linking two silences") his discernment of baseball as a joy in life rather than a job, and his love for the streams and mountains of central Pa, mold Nick from a youth with no path to a mature adult. He comes to realize that "the best things in life are free" and to enjoy the journey of life wherever your dreams take you.

Good storyline, great characters. As much as I love baseball and fishing, I believe I would identify most readily with Sir John. Sometimes the writing itself left a little to be desired; by that I mean usage of the same word multiple times in a paragraph or even within a sentence.
