Gold; Chris Cleave

Two women compete against each other in Olympice level cycling starting when they are 19 years old up until three olympics later when they are in their mid 30’s.  The complicated relationships involved and the one athlete’s daughter who has leukemia makes this a compelling novel.  A great book that really sucks you in.  Amazingly different than Little Bee – the author’s previous best seller – but just as good.

PJH Rating: ****1/2
