This was an easy to read good collection of inspirational love stories, connected by characters down through generations.
As one family's appreciation for athletic competition is passed through generations, the Olympics become a good place to find a teammate for life. In 1896, at the first modern games in Athens, Henri and Sophia face a battle of prejudices. Will they cross the finish line together? Dameon hopes the 1932 winter games in Lake Placid, New York, will earn him financial gold, but could his real prize be in new friendships? Bonnie is running in the 1960 summer games of Rome, while Preston's dreams of racing have been dashed. Can they still be winners in love? Calgary, site of the 1988 Winter Olympics, is a place for realizing dreams. Can Brian and Sophie unite their aspirations to reach for an even greater prize? When shared interests are not enough to sustain love, will faith step in to raise the flag of victory?
Such a wonderful book! History of the Olympics along with peoples stories, love and otherwise. Christian perspective, compare to Lynn Austin or Tracie Peterson books.
Lots of research on the times written about with a little romance mixed in.
Highly recommend this book.
Four stories of inherited athleticism and love.
A cool book with four novellas set around various years at the Olympics...I enjoyed it.
