Immerse yourself in the world of football
Sudden Death is a murder mystery set in the world of football and written by a woman who has lived her entire life as the wife of a player and coach. But it is more than a whodunit. In the guise of a mystery, there is an insightful look at the troubling aspects of gambling in sports, addiction, spouse abuse, and death threats to coaches and their wives. But a far more meaningful message is the survival and triumph of the human spirit. Finally, it is a love story between a man and woman who are committed to one another and their desire to make the world a better place.
The Life of Ella Gertrude Clanton Thomas, 1834–1907
Ella Gertrude Clanton Thomas was an intelligent, spirited woman born in 1834 to one of the wealthiest families in Georgia. At fourteen, she began keeping a diary. Her accounts of life before, during, and after the Civil War filled 13 volumes with 450,000 words. The war and its aftermath changed her life forever. She experienced poverty, illness, and devastating family strife. She saw four of her ten children die. She grew to question the “peculiar institution” upon which the antebellum South was built. Through it all, Thomas poured her thoughts into her diary, and through it all, she persevered. In her later years, she became a leading voice in the suffrage and temperance movements.
