Hope is hard to come by in the hard-luck town of Willow Creek.
Sam Pickett and five young men are about to change that. Sam
Pickett never expected to settle in this dried-up shell of a town
on the western edge of the world. He's come here to hide from the
violence and madness that have shattered his life, but what he
finds is what he least expects. There's a spirit that endures in
Willow Creek, Montana. It seems that every inhabitant of this
forgotten outpost has a story, a reason for taking a detour to this
place--or a reason for staying. As the coach of the hapless high
school basketball team (zero wins, ninety-three losses), Sam can't
help but be moved by the bravery he witnesses in the everyday lives
of people--including his own young players--bearing their sorrows
and broken dreams. How do they carry on, believing in a future that
seems to be based on the flimsiest of promises? Drawing on the
strength of the boys on the team, sharing the hope they display
despite insurmountable odds, Sam finally begins to see a future
worth living.Author Stanley Gordon West has filled the town of
Willow Creek with characters so vividly cast that they become real
as relatives, and their stories--so full of humor and passion, loss
and determination--illuminate a path into the human heart. "
