    Perfect timing for Olympic gold

    After having read Little Bee Chris Cleave has been a favorite. I eagerly awaited his latest Gold, and have not been disappointed.

    Gold follows two Olympic hopefuls. Now 32, Zoe and Kate met while training for track cycling when they were 19. According to their shared trainer, Tom, Kate was a born cyclist and the one to beat, but Zoe had drive and focus that had led her to numerous first place finishes. With the London Olympics just around the corner Zoe and Kate know that this will be their last chance for Olympic gold, but each are facing emotional hurdles that might sabotage their chances.

    All of the characters are so well written they pop off of the page, but it is Kate’s daughter, Sophie an eight year old Star Wars fanatic, battling a recurrence of leukemia like a true Jedi Knight, who is the true heart of the story. As she roots for her mother the reader can’t help but root for Sophie.

    I truly do think anyone but Chris Cleave could write a story that packs such an emotional wallop as this without having it turn into a melodramatic “Lifetime” movie.

    I loved Little Bea and now Gold. What next Mr. Cleave?

    Commitment to Sport. For people who have not had a personal commitment to sport this novel may seem uninteresting. The personal and physical toll was captured very well. There is always a choice, something is sacrificed and something is gained at every level when you chose your personal life over your sport. I felt that Chris Cleave portrayed this life very well. Thank you. I hope others will realize the commitment our olympic athletes make and support them in their endeavors.

    Highly recommend

    I really enjoyed this book. I felt like it started a little slow but not enough to stop reading it and now I'm in the middle of the book and I can't stop reading it. It's well written with lots of twist and turns.
