Shane Triplet is one of the best baseball prospects in the country. He has been drafted by the Cincinnati Reds and assigned to the Sheaville Loggers, a minor league team located in the depressed logging town of Sheaville, West Virginia.
Shanes arrival in Sheaville brings hope and high expectations for the team and the towns residents. But Shane and his family have lived in Sheaville before.
When Shane falls in love with Olivia Mitchell, some dark secrets are uncovered, revealing a painful history between the Triplet family and Sheaville. Balancing the enormous expectations of success with the challenges of redeeming the Triplet family name will be the ultimate game for Shane, physically and emotionally.About the Author
