Glove Letters: A Father Recalls His Son's Greatest Game is a work of non-fiction in the sports, family, and inspirational subgenres, and was penned by author Taylor Wilson. Written for the general reading audience and anyone with an interest in baseball and true-life tales, this heartfelt account explores a father’s relationship with his son through the medium of letters. Taylor writes to Landon, a teenager with dreams of making it big in baseball, who is hit by a vehicle during a jogging session. The collision results in part of one of his arms being amputated and leaving only one strong leg to ground himself, but this remarkable young man learns to rebalance and continue to pitch in spite of all adversity.

Author Taylor Wilson has crafted a highly emotive atmosphere in his letters, with plenty of hope and inspiration to offer all different kinds of readers, whether they face physical or mental challenges themselves or not. One of the features which I found particularly impressive about this piece was the style and voice, which really come straight from the author’s heart and captivate from minute one of reading. Taylor clearly has a wealth of love for Landon already, but to see that admiration continue to grow and outpour so openly and honestly as Landon overcomes so many new challenges is truly motivational. It is sure to make other readers feel they can achieve anything in life. Overall, I would highly recommend Glove Letters to fans of sports stories with a unique point of view and those who enjoy epistolary style autobiographical content.
