How much is a father's love worth? Jason Thibodeaux has a $42 million contract to pitch for the Colorado Rockies and a romantic bachelor lifestyle when the son he lost in a searing custody battle reappears in his life. Home, Away follows Thibodeaux's colorful rise to the pinnacle of Major League Baseball and his agonized decision to quit in the prime of his career to care for his troubled son. Their evolving relationship and resulting confrontations--on the baseball field and off--test the limits of loyalty and the meaning of fatherhood itself. Jeff Gillenkirk's stirring novel about family, love, and the depths of compassion played out against the backdrop of professional baseball has it all.
