We received some really great feedback last week for A Promise Forged by Cara Putman. First, you need to know a little about the story, set in 1943:
When Kat Miller makes All-American Girls Professional Softball League, she struggles with long road trips, grueling practices, and the challenge of making time for God. Not only that, but older teammates are jealous of her success and an irritating reporter, Jack Raymond, has a knack for getting under Kat’s skin.
When I opened up this package, I was instantly intrigued by its contents, especially the black and white baseball card autographed for Cara and the autobiography with a photo of a female softball player on the cover.
The letter begins:
I just finished reading the book called "A Promise Forged". A friend gave me the book because she knew I had played in the All-American Girls' Professional Baseball League in 1954 for the Grand Rapids Chicks. As I read the book, it was like I was walking in Kat's shoes, reliving my life again.I am enclosing a book I wrote about my ball playing days, and a signed baseball card....
Thank you for the great story!
What better feedback for a historical book than for someone who lived that life to feel like it truly took her back in time to relive those days? Great job, Cara!
