I'm glad I've read several other Patterson books before this one or I might have never discovered one of the best authors of all time. This book is a cutesy, feel good, "love story" which I normally don't mind but this one was rather annoying. I guess the fact that I don't care for golf didn't help but the main character is so whiny.

Travis hates his job, a job many people would kill for, so when he gets fired he takes $3,000 out of the bank for the entry fee into the senior golf tour and hopes he makes it so he can do what he really wants in life. I'm glad his life is so bad he has the $3,000 to "gamble on". Too bad all of us can't have a miracle of quitting our day jobs to play our favorite sport and get paid an asinine amount to do it. Call me crass, but this book is just too ridiculous to even enjoy. Stick with Patterson's mysteries and skip this silly effort of a book.

This book was out of the norm for Patterson. Short in length, which is good sometimes. More of a love story than a mystery.

Predictable ending, but good story otherwise.

The story is complex with surprises at every turn. I particularly liked Edith Burchill, known as Edie, who is the narrator, because she is so real. The three spinster sisters - Juniper, Saffy and Percy - have a strange, haunted background. Sheltered from life by their isolation in Milderhurst Castle and cherished by a doting wealthy father, they find themselves unable to live the lives they have dreamed with the loves of their lives. Why they cannot do so is what this story is all about. My only concern is that I'm not sure even life could deal any such combination of circumstances which occur again and again and again but this is fiction after all, isn't it?

This was just O.K. I wouldnt say it was bad, but it just wasnt the typical Patterson I have come to LOVE. No suspense, predictable ending, just O.K.

You don't need to be a golfer to enjoy this charming story. It is short, simple and very well written. Most of us over the age of fifty or so can relate to it on one level or another. Every now and then you need something nice and light and enjoyable..this is it. Recommend it's reading.

Not much to this one at all. So-so story, ended up skimming a bit as there just wasn't much to it. Quick read, only 192 pages. Get it from the library and don't waste your money on it.

Was dissappointed in this book. Expected something else. But it's an ok read, especially if you love the game of golf.

This is a terrific short novel that you can read in a day. It concerns a 50-year-old Chicago ad-man who quits his job and goes on the senior PGA tour. His relationship with his wife is shaky until the end when the miracle of the title occurs.

It's a short little read but good. I read it in a couple hours, might be better for someone who actually golfs. But it's still a good story.

If you are a golfer, you've got to love this book! I am a James Patterson fan, but I didn't expect anything like the love of the game from his pen.

This is a different type book that James Patterson has written. I enjoyed it, and I don't golf. It's more than a golf story. My husband, a golfer, enjoyed it too. Quick and easy read.
