Blogger: Book 'gives the readers the rest'

       One of my favorite movies of all time is We Are Marshall. I am a sucker for movies like this, movies that tell of how a community overcame a horrible tragedy. I get goose bumps and teary-eyed every time I watch that movie.

       Of course, having actor Matthew McConaughey as the coach who rebuilds the team helps a little bit. In his memoir called November Ever After, Craig T. Greenlee tells the behind-the-scene stories of the football players who died that tragic night back on November 14, 1970.
       As a former teammate of those Marshall players, Greenlee has a unique connection because he did know most of the players who died. Greenlee is a freelance sports journalist and a Marshall graduate. Now he lives with his wife in North Carolina where he has become an accomplished photographer and graphic artist.
       Since the movie only gives some of the details of the tragedy, November Ever After gives the readers the rest. The book “delivers an up-close and personal look at the impact the tragedy had on those who were left behind.”
       After seeing We Are Marshall several times, I would love to read this book. The community is an inspiration to what a tragedy can do to people.
       If you want to read this book like I do, then go to Greenlee’s web site.

Michele Mathews writes contemporary fiction in novels and short stories and non-fiction as well as articles for various web sites.
