A heartfelt debut about the unlikely relationship between a young woman who’s shed her husband and a major group pitcher who’s lost his game.


In a sleepy seaside town in Maine, recently widowed Eveleth “Evvie” Drake rarely leaves her large, painfully empty house about Evvie Drake Begins Over: A Book nearly a year after her husband’s loss of life in a car crash. Everyone around, even her closest friend, Andy, thinks grief helps to keep her locked inside, and Evvie doesn’t appropriate them.

Meanwhile, in New York City, Dean Tenney, former Major Group pitcher and Andy’s years as a child best friend, is normally wrestling with what unpleasant sportsmen living out their worst nightmares call the “yips”: he can’t throw straight any longer, and, even worse, he can’t figure out why. As the mass media storm heats up, an invitation from Andy to stay in Maine seems just like the perfect chance going to the reset switch on Dean’s potential.

When he techniques into an apartment at the back of Evvie’s house, the two make a offer: Dean won’t enquire about Evvie’s late hubby, and Evvie won’t ask about Dean’s football career. Guidelines, though, have a funny method of getting broken-and what starts as an urgent friendship soon becomes something more. To go forwards, Evvie and Dean must reckon using their pasts-the friendships they’ve damaged, the secrets they’ve kept-but in life, as in football, there’s always a chance-up until the last out.

A joyful, amusing, and hope-filled debut, Evvie Drake Begins Over will have you cheering for the two most improbable comebacks of the year-and will leave you wanting more from Linda Holmes.
