Inhaltsangabe: The author of the phenomenal Left Behind series and eight New York Times bestselling titles, Jerry B. Jenkins is one of the most widely read and deeply admired novelists of our time.
Athens City, Alabama, has fallen on hard times and the Athens City Crusaders, once a powerhouse high school football team, are in disarray. Former football coach Buster Schuler, who left town following a tragedy during a championship game in 1988, has returned for one last chance to lead the Crusaders to glory. But he soon discovers the challenge is overwhelming. As the Crusaders head for a final confrontation with their most powerful rival, their last drive for victory mirrors the struggles of everyone in Athens City to recapture the heart and soul of their town.
Rezension: The coauthor of the blockbuster Left Behind series inks the appealing, happily-ever-after Hometown Legend, about a small town in severe financial straits and its former championship football team, written in a made-for-the-movies style that will earn author Jerry Jenkins some new fans. There are some likable characters in this yarn. Lonely widower Cal Sawyer is juggling several balls at once: raising his teenage daughter Rachel, helping coach the down-at-the-heels Athens City High football team, and trying to keep the American Leather Football Company from going belly up. He doesn't count on the impact Elvis Presley Jackson will have on the football season--and on his daughter. Bev Raschke, Sawyer's single, 40-something assistant, has her eye on him, but as Sawyer says, "She's got two cats, and that's about all I need to know about a woman." Romance is inevitable. As the novel unfolds, mostly told in Sawyer's rambling, Southern drawl, we see trouble brewing in his personal life, on the football team, and with the unfolding of Elvis's past. But never fear--there's a happy ending in sight. No loose ends are left dangling, and there's a heartwarming, feel-good wrap-up with a bit of a spin that will satisfy Left Behind aficionados who enjoy a predestined finish to their leisure reading. --Cindy Crosby
