Book Review: The One & Only
See a Problem?
On a May night, this Long Island, New York, venue is packed with females and the demographic is vast: teenage girls, young women, and senior citizens all seated in place. As she puts it, her protagonist, Shea Rigsby, is asking: Am I meeting my destiny? In the small college town of Walker, Texas, where people are devoted to football and the thrill of the game, Coach Carr is a local celebrity. This season means even more since his wife, Connie, passed away; he hopes for a championship win in her honor. Meanwhile, Shea is sifting through her early thirties and concludes that her life is a bit too comfortable, a bit too stagnant.
Lucy asks Shea to choose between their friendship and her relationship with Coach Carr. Have you ever been faced with a choice between two people you care about? Discuss some examples of characters who ask for forgiveness. In each instance, is forgiveness given? Is it earned?
