About this title

Synopsis:

After the sudden death of her husband, Minda Hobbs returns to Angel Heights, S.C., the home of her forebears, to seek peace and purpose in her life. Instead, she finds her n'er-do-well cousin Otto as cold and stiff as yesterday's grits in the ladies' room at the historic Minerva Academy.

Shocked by her cousin's murder and still grieving over the loss of her husband, Minda has mixed emotions when she's greeted by her guardian angel, Augusta Goodnight. Shimmering with church window radiance, and smelling of strawberry jam, Augusta is a temp who's come on a double mission-to help Minda solve Otto's murder and to take care of unfinished business from an assignment in 1916.

Even though Otto could be unbearable at times, an annoying laugh is hardly cause for murder. Minda's only lead is a tiny gold pin, found wedged in a Minerva Academy bathroom stall, and its connection to a club called the Mystic Six. Together, Minda and Augusta trace the descendents of this secret society, piecing together clues that lead to a special quilt and the mystery behind Cousin Otto's unfortunate demise.

From the Back Cover:

"If golf mimics life, then Andy North hits every type of shot with every club in the bag."-ESPN's Chris Berman, from the Foreword

Andy North is a two-time United States Open champion, current player on the Senior PGA Tour, and a commentator for ESPN. In this book, Andy offers golfing fans a treasure chest of anecdotes and shares his insight and wisdom into the game of golf. Andy first talks about the pioneers of the game and shares memories of his time with the likes of Arnold Palmer, Jack Nicklaus, Tom Watson, Gary Player, and many others. He shares the heartwarming story of his life growing up in Wisconsin and his rise to success on the PGA Tour.

He offers advice on how to better understand and play golf. This book has both the drills and games you can play with your children to make golf fun and the games that you as an amateur golfer should play to improve your own game.

Finally, Andy talks about the changes facing golf in the coming years and shares his experiences working with his friends at ESPN.

The drama, the excitement, and the suspense of professional golf are all captured in this book. Golfers of all ages will enjoy Andy North's unique perspective on golf.
"All of us in the public eye are role models to children, but Andy is truly a wonderful role model. He's a good man, a champion golfer....Young people can read this book for themselves and they will see just how good a golfer and person he really is."
-Byron Nelson

"It is a smorgasbord of golf."
-Wisconsin State Journal

"One of the sport's quiet men reveals a down-home sense of humor in this amiable take on professional golf at its highest level. A pleasing stroll with an agreeable companion."
-Kirkus

"In a combination memoir and golf instructional, North emerges as a thoughtful man."
-Booklist
