Featured Book

The Time of My Life - But for a twist of fate, Derious Cooper and Evan Jones might never have met. Derious is an African American teenager who is at risk for failing and on the fringes of gang behavior. Evan is a wealthy white doctor and former Olympic hopeful whose injuries have left him unable to run. When Evan begins coaching a high school track team on which Derious is the star runner, they discover that they are connected by more than just their love of running. As they forge a relationship that crosses racial barriers, each deals with events from their past which tie them together and affect their future. Theirs is a  story about overcoming adversity, meeting challenges head-on and changing lives.

A Heart Warming Tale July 2, 2012
By Franz
Format:Kindle Edition
We all need a bit of inspiration at times and Lynn Murphy has certainly delivered in her novel The Time of My Life. Using first-person perspective, the story evolves through the eyes of four characters. Ms Murphy's easy style deftly weaves a tale of wounded people coming together to help one another. Although the story seems to revolve around a former Olympic hopeful, the reader quickly sees that he, and all of those around him, have much to learn from the others. This is a story of characters from diverse backgrounds growing and developing through increasing understanding and support. The author's gentle hand teaches lessons while wrapping the reader in the warm cocoon of a well-developed talecouraged, humbled, and finally brought to tears by this wonderful story. Five stars!"- review of The Time Of My Life
