THE NINE LESSONS
Even those who aren't golf fans
will find some interesting insights in Milne's latest book. The lessons about marriage and family are universal and will touch hearts.
August Witte told his wife when they married that he never wanted to have children. His mother died when he was young, and his golf-obsessed father didn't do much to make August think highly of parenting. So when Erin discovers she's pregnant after seven years of marriage, August is stunned and upset. He embarks on a series of nine monthly golf and life lessons with his father that will teach him about his past, as well as prepare him for the future. (CENTER STREET, May, 240 pp., $14.99)
