When he married Nicole, the beloved town sweetheart, he seemed to have it all--until his troubled wife committed suicide. Now, everything Dean thought he knew is thrown off kilter as Nicole's death forces him to re-evaluate all of his relationships, including those with his team and his three children.

When a new family emergency arises, Dean discovers that he'llnever view the world in the same way again. Transporting readers to the heart of small town America, Home Field is an unforgettable, poignant story about the pull of the past and the power of forgiveness"--
