Drew Tanner, raised in a religious household, pursued his dream of becoming a professional ballplayer. He achieved not only his goal of playing in the majors but also finds his soul-mate. His childhood friend, Nate Ellis, follows in Drew’s footsteps.
A family tragedy puts Drew on a collision course with life’s injustices and creates a crisis in faith. He quits the game, but six weeks later he’s convinced to play again in order to help the team’s race for the pennant. During his come-back game, a freak incident involving eleven-year-old Maddy Tyler unleashes a cascade of events that culminates in a mysterious death. Maddy’s pursuit of the truth to save her hero leads to long-held family secrets. Does the key to Drew’s salvation lie within those secrets or the judicial system?
Set against the backdrop of a much-beloved sport, Maddy’s Game is a moving saga about the value of friendship, redemption and restoration, and the power of forgiveness.
