Riley Finney, the golf pro first introduced in the novel Strength in Numbers, has had an upsy-downsy life. By her senior year of high school she knows she must juggle her lesbianism with the need to keep silent to further the chance of following her golf dreams. When she joins the Nittany Lions college golf team, she falls in love for the first time. She later makes the pro tour but is betrayed and outed, sending resounding shockwaves through her world that threaten to affect her career plan. Will she tuck tail and run home to Pennsylvania? Or can she stand up to the challenges she faces in both love and professional golf?


I loved the way the author depicted Riley's growth as a determined young sportswoman settling into her sexuality. A wonderful read.
