Maybe you've been putting your own dreams on hold. Maybe you're recovering from your own illness. Maybe you've lost someone you care about. Discover how to jumpstart your next amazing season in life through this heartfelt, relatable memoir.
After surviving both Hodgkin's lymphoma and melanoma, sports enthusiast Katie Russell Newland knows the struggles of overcoming challenges both on and off the field.
A Season with Mom offers readers an intimate, true story about the bond shared between a mother and daughter, a road trip to all 30 Major League Baseball (MLB) parks, and the importance of relishing every joy and struggle along the way.
The book is highly recommended for
- mothers and daughters
- cancer survivors
- baseball and sports fans of all ages
- anyone who has experienced loss, and maybe found love along the way
Join Katie as she travels more than 30,000 miles to all 30 MLB parks in a single season, a rare feat covered by the likes of ESPN. Along with black-and-white photographs, Katie shares letters written to her mom, who died of cancer before the two of them could go on this adventure of a lifetime together.
During the journey, Katie beautifully illustrates the brevity of life, the excitement of adventure, and the clarity that comes by watching America's favorite pastime.
A Season with Mom reminds readers that in life, as in baseball, sometimes you strike out, but sometimes you hit home runs. Even if the wait is longer than you'd hoped, dreams can come true.
