Description
"Two friends, one Olympic dream, and the choice that stood in the way Once Leigh and Susy were close friends and teammates bound for Olympic hockey gold, but when Leigh's surefire plan to make the final roster backfired, she left everything behind to start over, including the one person who knew her secret. Two decades later, Leigh's a successful investment banker, happily married, and the mom of a hockey prodigy, so when a career opportunity lands the family back in Minnesota, she takes the shot for her kid. Back in the ultracompetitive world she left behind, Leigh finds herself in Susy's orbit, a daily reminder of how Leigh watched from the sidelines as her former teammate went on to Olympic glory. Despite the coldness between them, Susy can't help but hope that Leigh might lace up her skates and join her in the coaches' box-after all, Leigh knows better than anyone how hard it is to be a woman in this world. Susy knows her daughter, Georgie, will soon be seen as a "girl athlete," relegated to the B team, with less support and opportunity to advance. But Leigh believes keeping Susy at arm's length is the only way to hide her history with her former coach, Jeff Carlson. When he hints about new favors in exchange for her son's ice time, Leigh is caught in the ultimate bind: come clean about what happened when she was an Olympic hopeful and risk her marriage, or play Jeff's game. In a moment of desperation, Leigh realizes the one person she thought was her biggest competitor-her former teammate-might turn out to be her biggest ally. Told with Kathleen West's trademark wit and compassion, Home or Away is a story about overcoming our pasts, confronting our futures, and the sustaining bonds of female friendship"--,Provided by publisher.
