Paul Tanner and Nicky Newman were two of the most highly recruited Point Guards in the country for Division II Basketball. New Coach at the ‘U’ Bob Barrows built his whole program around them. Everything was going fine and the team was on track to become one of the greatest ever in the region until Paul let fame and the attention
go right to his head. He partied hardy, drank, did drugs and had many women but mostly didn’t remember what happened once he started down that dark path.
He and Nicky became brothers that first year and even lectures and pleas from Nicky didn’t help straighten him out. Paul knew Nicky was hurting too—watching him destroy his life like that. Nicky lost his only brother the same way and feared the same would happen to Paul. Nicky felt he just couldn’t bury another brother.
Until….Paul met Maggie Sardo. He didn’t want to fall in love with her and knew she would hate his friends and bad habits but he just couldn’t help himself. He knew the only way he could be with her was if he changed his life around and was Nicky ever so happy he had someone to help him save Paul.
Somehow your past always finds you as in this story. Paul tried to live a good life but it always seemed to haunt him—even years later. This story is about tragedy, hope, kindness, friendships and most of all love.
