Aaron Hill has it all—athletic good looks and the many privileges of a star quarterback. His Sundays are spent playing NFL football in front of a televised audience of millions. But Aaron’s about to receive an unexpected handoff, one that will give him a whole new view of his self-centered life.Derrick Anderson is a family man who volunteers his time with foster kids while sustaining a long career as a pro football player. But now he’s looking for a miracle. He must act as team mentor while still striving for the one thing that matters most this season—keeping a promise he made years ago.Megan Gunn works two jobs and spends her spare time helping at the youth center. Much of what she does, she does for the one boy for whom she is everything—a foster child whose dying mother left him in Megan’s care. Now she wants to adopt him, but one obstacle stands in the way. Her foster son, Cory, is convinced that 49ers quarterback Aaron Hill is his father.Two men and the game they love. A woman with a heart for the lonely and lost, and a boy who believes the impossible. Thrown together in a season of self-discovery, they’re about to learn lessons in character and grace, love and sacrifice.Because in the end life isn’t defined by what takes place on the first day of the week, but how we live it between Sundays.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carol S. | 2/17/2014

    " I liked it. Enjoyable reading. She seems to have an easy style. She focuses on the lives of an NFL football player and the Foster Kids that need support. Of course, a Christian athlete is in the picture and leads the main character to Christ. Interesting to follow the path of his life, that of the Christian, the single Foster mother and the boy. "

    " Kingsbury offers another tale that tugs at readers heartstrings--but there is a happy ending of course. It is set against the backdrop of professonal football and kids caught up in the foster care system. One of these kids, Cory, has been taken in by his foster mom Megan ever since his real mother died. She wants to adopt him but he is isistent he has a dad--and that dad happens to be the star quarterback of the San Francisco 49's. Megan doesn't believe that this could be true, but the efforts of another football player gives Cory a chance to deliver a message to his "real dad". What follows is the story of how this quarterback learns that what happens "between Sundays" is just as important as what happens on the field. [return]The story was good enough, the audio version I listened to was terrible. I'm sorry, but the narrator tried to hard to make different voices for the characters, but her characterizations were distracting at best. If you like emotionally laden stories give this one a read--but stay away from the audio version. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jen | 2/12/2014

    " Predictable. If I weren't able to figure out the whole story from the dust jacket, I might've liked it better. Felt almost like a waste of my time to read, except I enjoy reading...so I enjoyed it. lol "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Highland-dreamer | 2/9/2014

    " This was the first of Karen Kingsbury's books that did not make me cry! I enjoyed the book, even though I'm not much into football. I thought there was a great message within the pages, and I was smiling at the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacia | 1/20/2014

    " This was a fun read with a fun storyline, but there's really nothing redeeming in it. Like I can't justify reading it by saying I learned something of culture or history or even something inspirational about God... nope it's just a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsten | 1/18/2014

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mj | 1/10/2014

    " Excellent feel good book. Good story and message. The plot is predictable but it nonetheless keeps one's interest because you are routing for all the central characters in the book and want everyone to win:win. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jan | 12/21/2013

    " Pretty predictable. A big happy ending. A little preachy. But... this audio book made all the last soccer/volleyball trips pass quickly. Corey finds his dad. Megan finds true love. Aaron Hill finds redemption. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurel | 5/12/2012

    " This is why I read. Books like this are worth burning 55 calories per hour, stagnating on the couch. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth Liles | 4/11/2012

    " Very inspirational! Shows that Christianity should go on every day of the week, not just on Sundays. "

    " I thought this book was very good! It took me a while to read but thats because i was reading other books for school! I loved the part when Aaron finally realized that he was Corys father! I also liked how at the end Aaron proposed to Megan! It was a good book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristen | 1/30/2011

    " Took me a lil bit to get into it, but it was really good! The faith that Cory has in wht his mom tells him about Aaron Hill just makes my heart break. The love story that developes just make you believe that you should not judge a person on what you read or hear about them. "
