Miracle on the 17th Green
  by James Patterson and Peter deJonge

This is a short little book that anyone can relate to.   When I started to read it I thought it was a book about golf.  But it is a book about life. 


When we meet the book’s main character, Travis McKinley, he is at a point in his life where nothing seems to be working, including his job and his family relationships.  In the story Travis’ job comes to an end and he is faced with the decision about what to do with the rest of his life.  He pursues a life long dream and becomes a different person, or perhaps the person he used to be, and after a number of successes and struggles on a large stage experiences a miracle on the 17th green that illustrates what is really important in life. 

I enjoyed this book perhaps because I’m not chronologically far off from Travis’ age and also perhaps because in some small way my story is close to his.
