E.A., short for Ethan Allen, comes of age in Northern Vermont and lives for baseball. So does the whole town of Kingdom Common.  They are all rabid Red Sox fans and have a replica of Fenway Park's Green Monster on top of the local baseball bat factory.  To say the least, E.A's upbringing is unconventional, yet in its own way grounded and loving. As he grows so does his love for baseball, especially when a talented drifter comes to town and becomes coach and mentor. The book was written pre-Red Sox World Series Championship wins. But if you remember those days, you can appreciate the state of mind and hope for a miracle when E.A. gets a chance to pitch for his beloved team. The author's knowledge of baseball certainly comes through as does his skill in drawing the picture of rural life and the quirky characters of a small town.  A delightful, sometimes comic, sometimes poignant summer read.
