The best I've ever read. A brilliant lesson in the possibility's of character. A lesson well learned. Three quarters in I found myself so involved, reading the fastest I've even done. Unable to stop, but needing to pry myself away. Definitely not the "Yankee Doddle Dandy" I was ever taught! I'd recommend it to anyone who doubts the sacrifice necessary to win.
