Description

Left to Right is a spellbinding drama of Alex MacCafry, ex-baseball star and coach for twin teenage boys whose love of baseball set the stage for tragedy, love and commitment to fulfill a promise. Super baseball star, Gene Stites is apparently murdered during the last game of the season. Time is turned back to when Gene and Dean Stites' family move from San Diego, CA to the outback of Australia. The boy's frustration from the sudden change between being star players on their league to not being able to play baseball is changed when they meet Alex MacCafry. Alex became a recluse after critically injuring his arm. He broke his engagement to a beautiful woman and moved to Australia. His only connection to his past was the baseball field he had in his backyard. It was a shrine, not to be played on. Alex was eventually convinced by his best friend to allow the boys to use his field. He found new meaning in life when he started coaching the boys. Life was wonderful, until Dean is killed from a stray bullet shot by a poacher. As he is dying in his brother's arms, he asks Gene to promise him that he will be remembered. Gene is consumed by guilt over his brother's death and at a loss as how to fulfill his promise to Dean. Alex recognizes that Gene is following the same destructive path he had taken when he injured his arm. Alex makes a commitment to himself to help Gene overcome his self-destruction and to fulfill his promise to his brother.show more

About Jean a Little

Co-author, Jean loved playing sports when young and still follows favorite teams. She conceived of the idea for Left to Right while watching the World Series. The idea of the story intrigued her to the point that she created an outline. However, she never developed the full story. When Jean told me about her story, I was impressed and felt compelled to help her create the resulting novel. I have an AA in Liberal Arts and Humanities, majoring in English. I have written several short stories and have had a poem published in The International Who's Who in Poetry. This is our first novel.show more
