" A moving novel about love, loss, and an extraordinary lifelong passion for golf, by
the acclaimed author of The Cliff Walk and Fallen Angel. "
" Ross Lansdale never knew his mother and father. Raised in the 1950s at St. Luke's
Orphanage for Boys, Ross found one person who took an interest in him - Father Martin,
a Benedictine monk who understood the loneliness of an orphan's life. He instilled in
Ross an enduring love of two solitary, reliable pursuits: golf and books.
Over the years, and through the loss of his beloved mentor, Ross comes to rely on
these trustworthy tools, sure that they will never abandon him. "
" As an adult and a college professor of literature, Ross encounters two people who will
challenge and forever change his life: Julia, the sultry student who opens his heart,
only to make him feel more vulnerable than ever, and Johnny Durocher, a spit-fire new
professor - and terrifically talented golfer - who becomes Ross's first true friend.
Johnny's one serious dream is to play the amateur tournament on the Old Course at St.
Andrews, but when a sudden tragedy keeps him from playing, Ross must make the boldest
decision of his life.
As he travels to Scotland to confront his failures and fears, Ross embraces his wonder
of the ancient game and sets out to play in honor of his friend, and the boy he used
to be. "
" With characteristic poignancy and style that have earned Don J. Snyder critical acclaim
for his novels and screenplays, Winter Dreams is a remarkable new work filled with
compassion, heartache, and the grace that comes from the triumph of personal courage. "
