More About This Book

Overview

Californian Sally Liddle isn't looking for any more British adventures, between her best friend Harry's brain tumor there in Yorkshire and her brother Jason's first go at parenthood out in Silicon Valley. When Harry's worsening condition brings home her ex-husband Graeme, Sally realizes the 2006 World Series is going to be a lot more than just baseball.

A one night stand between Sally and Graeme stirs up memories from their past, while Tigers' fan Jason faces his own demons, what with Detroit's poor play and his own murky parentage in question. Sally can't decipher Graeme's intentions, nor does she understand the message at Harry's bedside. Might it be the key to letting him go?

A Flemish note card, one sweet potato pie recipe and endless cups of English tea set the rules by which Sally, Graeme, Harry and Jason find themselves governed. As time grows short, Sally has to decide if love thought cold might be possible, while Harry faces his fear of the unknown. Can Graeme break through Sally's fears, and is there any hope for the Detroit Tigers?

Drop the Gauntlet is a tale of love and fear, life and death. Set in North Yorkshire, England, it explores cross cultural relationships, the inexplicable natures of baseball and cricket to those uninitiated, and the timeless appeal of a cuppa.
