One Season of Hope By Jim Stovall

Bestselling author Jim Stovall’s latest offering and first title of his Homecoming Historical Series, One Season of Hope, is a rare combination of tear-jerking emotion, powerful wisdom, and inspiring hope. Written in Stovall’s signature easy and economical style, the story is told through the perspective of Glen Fullerton, “a man for the last forty-two years in the Truman High universe, simply known as Coach.”

Welcome to the Friday night lights of Harry S. Truman High School football stadium. Coach knows the roller-coaster ride of a high school football season better than anyone. But this season is different than any he has experienced in all his years of coaching. It is one of life-changing suspense and gripping lessons in the value of humanity.

Regular, reflective “conversations” with the late President Truman give guidance, mined from the coach’s love and study of history, to help him through the most challenging season of his long and storied career at Truman High—a season that he will forever      remember as One Season of Hope.

"Gentlemen, sometimes when hope is all you have, it doesn't seem like much, but if you hold on tightly, it's enough."
This book is an insightful and emotionally charged book. I am a big sports fan, especially football, so I was pretty sure I would enjoy this book. It was actually a lot different than I thought it would be in a lot of ways. I appreciated the insight from President Truman all throughout the book.
The emotional rollercoaster that it put me on was also very surprising. This book touched my heart from beginning to end. So much emotion!
Jim Stovall is an excellent writer. I have never read any of his book before, but I most definitely want to read more by him. He has a way of drawing you into the story and making cheer and cry right along with the characters in the book. I was in Bradley Hope's corner through the whole book.
This book would be an excellent book for the teenager in your life.
An awesome book with a great theme and storyline. It most definitely will not disappoint.
I was blessed with this book from the publisher through the Book Club Network in exchange for my review. A positive review was not required.
