What they're saying about "November Ever After"

  •  “Being that it's the bowl season, I figured now would be a great time to read this. While, yes, it is about a tremendous tragedy that rocked a community, it's also a great look at how they overcame. Mr. Greenlee did a masterful job of sharing the stories not only of the players who were lost, but of their families and fellow students. Tough at times, but in the end, a triumphant look at a great team of players who were lost too soon. Recommended for fans of college football.”

  •  “You won’t able to put it down!! Mr. Greenlee has captured the essence, atmosphere, and utter devastation caused by this tragedy of the most epic proportions. This book will leave you with an ever-increasing gratitude for the God-given gift we call LIFE.

  •       “Many times throughout the story I found myself welled up with grief that those in this account experienced at that time. The author made me feel as though I knew each one of those surviving family members. This was a story about struggle. The university, the team, the families, and the students all shared in a compounded struggle. Who were the winners? You must read the book to find out who and if there were winners.”

-- Keno
  •  “Good account of this tragic event. My husband is from West Virginia and had the option to play at Marshall in this era. He chose an ACC school instead. He knew some players on this team and still feels the impact of this tragic event. This is a good read.”

  •  “I found November Ever After extremely painful to read at times, but also incredibly satisfying because it fills in blanks in my own knowledge, forces me to resurrect long-buried memories, and shares with others the African-American experiences at MU that many of us have long wished would be examined some day.”

-- Angela Dodson


  •  “Some of the most powerful passages in the book involve the moments when Greenlee and his classmates in a campus dormitory heard about the crash, then learned there were no survivors. Some snuck around police barricades to get closer to the wreckage and see for themselves. Others made tearful phone calls to victims’ families. And some, like Greenlee, tried to escape public displays and deal with the shock on their own.”
