As much as golf or baseball, hockey is bound to its traditions and history. Grand stories of the "Original Six," unending bus rides across the frozen Prairies, and "lacing 'em up" after disfiguring facial lacerations are as much a part of the game as the sticks and pucks. In For the Love of Hockey, Chris McDonell has compiled the personal stories of 91 of the game's greatest talents. From vintage photos to Gordie Howe explaining how he acquired his first pair of skates, this book is special. Highlights? Try these: a photo of a young Ray Bourque; Ted Lindsay telling of his struggle in starting the player's association; Sergei Federov's tale of childhood hockey in Russia; "Boom Boom" Geoffrion recalling his introducing the slap shot to the NHL; a photo of Lanny McDonald and his massive red moustache. There are gems scattered generously throughout this book, and the spirit of old time hockey is alive and well within these pages. --S.

Hannah masterfully details the unraveling of a family. (Associated Press on Night Road)
"Kristin Hannah is back in top form with…Night Road. The novel grips the reader from the
first appearance of despondent 14-year-old Lexi Baill…[and] will hook Hannah fans from start
to suspenseful finish." (Washington Post)
"Night Road is a do-not-miss for fans of Jodi Picoult and will stay with you long after you've
turned the last page." (Justine Magazine)
[A] rich, multilayered reading experience, and…an easy recommendation for book clubs.
Hannah's latest is a moving and realistic portrait of a complex and enduring friendship. (Associated Press on Night Road)
[Hannah] really knows what women-her characters and her audience-want.
"This terrific buddy saga about two best girlfriends who survive all sorts of escapades and
catastrophes will inevitably provoke comparisons with Iris Dart's 'Beaches,' but the story is
all Hannah's own."
You cannot read Night Road and not be affected by the story and the characters. The total impact of the book will stay with you for days to come after it is finished.
