Longtime sportswriter Dave Kindred narrates his memoir, which canvases his 80-plus years--from growing up and covering sports in a variety of places to retiring in the plains country of Illinois. His retirement "job" is covering a high school girls basketball team. When Kindred's wife becomes ill, covering the team becomes a catharsis. His voice and words suggest sweetness, sadness, and a gentle manner, which are appropriate as he details his wife's illness and their love story. A polished narrator could have done this, but Kindred knows how to beautifully string along sentences, and his inflections are genuine. By the time the listener finishes this audiobook, it's tough to imagine anyone else narrating this wonderful story of a life well lived.
