Présentation de l'éditeur
From the bestselling author of 600 Hours of Edward comes the story of two small-town characters whose fates are inextricably linked.
Hugo Hunter, a would-be boxing champion, is thirty-seven, soft around the middle, and broke—his glory days long gone. Raised by his beloved grandmother, he is rough around the edges but has a kind heart. Watching Hugo ringside for nearly twenty years, sportswriter Mark Westerly has struggled to keep a professional distance while he’s served alternately as Hugo’s friend, mentor, and conscience. As Hugo lands on the ropes again, Mark steps in to try to save him and, along the way, gets an unexpected second chance of his own when he meets the gentle and lovely Lainie.
In this moving tale of human folly and kindness, can two people who’ve lived so long under the weight of their pasts finally find redemption?
