Publisher's Summary

Football season becomes a time of realization that life's most important victories are won off the field. A star running back with much to learn, a younger player with much to give, and a woman with a heart for underprivileged kids - all three are thrown together into a time of self-discovery and a new awareness of the things that matter most.

Kingsbury Fan

I have read and listened to most of Karen Kingsbury's books. As a result, I am a big fan. Between Sunday's was not my favorite title of hers. The story is great but it seems to move a little too slowly. There were times I couldn't stop listening and other times I just wanted the story to move on. Towards the ending, I felt it was so predictable that the pace could have been picked up a bit. I still think it is worth the read, but I am not giving it five stars.

Great Narration

My husband was frequently around when I was listening to this audio book for the second time. Because it is sports-related (NOT a true story about the 9er's, btw), his interest was drawn. He liked the story, and does not read much fiction - preferring history/biographical books and spiritual studies in his busy world instead.

Between Sundays has some solid direction for fathers and is narrated with simplistic language - for instance, Kingsbury captures a child's thoughts as a child would think them. The narrator is easy to listen to with properly placed inflections and some voice changes for various characters. Karen Kingsbury attacks real contemporary social problems in this book, as she does in her other books. I typically prefer period history pieces, however, I have enjoyed every one of her books I've read (over a dozen of them so far) or listened to.
