Publisher's Summary

Life changes overnight for coach John Harrison when his high school basketball team and state championship dreams are crushed under the weight of unexpected news. When the largest manufacturing plant shuts down and hundreds of families leave their town, John questions how he and his family will face an uncertain future. 

After reluctantly agreeing to coach cross-country, John and his wife, Amy, meet an aspiring athlete who’s pushing her limits on a journey toward discovery. Inspired by the words and prayers of a newfound friend, John becomes the least likely coach helping the least likely runner attempt the impossible in the biggest race of the year.

Well Done!

Prayer, Forgiveness, and Faith are a part of our walk with God. The story reminded me to honor and glorify our Lord throughout my daily journey. Thank you for sharing and reminding me that God is in control. We dont always know why, but He does.

Encouraging Story

I listened to this before the movie came out and was so glad I did. I love knowing all the details that can’t always be shown in a movie. Would love all high school kids to listen to this story of overcoming difficult times.

Inspiring and Uplifting

An inspiring and uplifting story of life's challenges and disappointments and finding a love that overcomes it all. The characters in this story struggle with acceptance, hurt, loss, loneliness, and unmet expectations. As they realize that their actions, both good and bad, have a lasting effect on others and they come to terms with their own limitations, they discover that God has a bigger plan and propose for their lives. Humbling themselves, surrendering their lives to God and trusting him for the outcome, they experience forgives, redemption, reconciliation and a love that lasts for all eternity. Not only will you enjoy this story, but it will encourage you and remind you that love conquers all.
