I enjoy Deford on NPR on Wednesday mornings with his sports commentary. This pleasant though far-fetched book was OK. Dealt with a woman backstroker who became a US champion swimmer and ended up in Berlin for the 1936 Olympics where, in matter of 2-3 days, found the love of her life in a German male swimmer.

War intervenes. The ending was a bit hard to swallow, but oh well.

The book was narrated by a man and a woman, alternating most parts as the swimmer -- now in her 80s -- and her son who is now in his 60s.
