THE WINNER'S GAME
Genre: Inspirational, Mainstream
Milne’s sweet, simple tale will remind readers of the importance of family and faithfulness. This novel pulls at the heart strings, yet never ventures too far into sappy territory. The characters are relatable and real, and the Oregon coast setting is spectacular.
Seventeen-year-old Ann Bennett’s life-threatening heart condition is beginning to wear on her family, particularly her siblings, who feel that she gets all the attention. Her parents’ marriage is unraveling, and the family decides to take a trip to the Oregon coast for the summer to rest while they wait for a heart transplant donor. The vacation starts out anything but restful as everyone is at each other’s throats. It’s only when they learn about their great-grandmother’s “winner’s game” that the family begins to come together again. (CENTER STREET, Mar., 384 pp., $15.00)
