The Death and Resurrection of Baseball

Description

Hello readers. I've just published my debut novel; The Death and Resurrection of Baseball. It is a delightful feel good story getting great early reviews. I would be humbled for your support and review. It is a story more than just about baseball, it is a story about us as a nation.

Description:

In the year 2166, a post Second Civil War America is finally back on its feet. Among the countless personal and cultural casualties of the war, the sport of baseball has been dead for over a hundred years. 12-year-old Joe Scott lives in the northern Illinois city of McHenry and goes exploring in the woods one day in a no man's land that a hundred years earlier was the site of the bloodiest battle of the war. While there, he discovers a relic from the distant past, from before the war. It sparks a search for its meaning. Little does he know that the wheels of Providence have been unwittingly set in motion which leads to a stunning discovery in Dyersville, Iowa.


This second discovery has a direct connection with the relic found in McHenry. As events unfold, Joe finds himself at the center of the rediscovery of a sport long lost and forgotten by the ravages of time and war.

Things that make you

Stop and smile

Focus and pause

A little while


What captures your eye

And makes you look

What grabs your soul

And sets the hook


Passions we have

We can’t ignore

To what we’re driven

We must explore


Chef in the kitchen

Begins to cook

Feels like the bishop

That got the rook


A builder steps back

Admires the house

Proud as a cat

That caught the mouse


The musician plays

And performs the song

To which the crowds

Sing along


We all have gifts

It’s only fair

They benefit others

And we must share


Some are inherent

Others unique

Most take work

To hone technique


We live our lives

The way we must

It’s vital our compass

Collects no dust
