The Review

This was a beautifully written, powerful and emotional read. A steady read that draws readers into the life of protagonist Dan, readers are left reeling as much as Dan himself after the tragic event that tears his family apart. The author does an excellent job of showcasing a detailed backstory and delving fully into Dan’s career as an attorney with a healthy balance of family life leading up to the tragedy.

What really is captured is the raw pain that comes with tragic events and loss

The Jersey tells a beautiful story, packed with emotion, humour, fun, and oodles of poignant moments.
The story surprised me, though I'm not sure what I was expecting. Much of the story centred around a reluctant Dan coaching his son's soccer team, seeing the boys bond and grow together in confidence and ability. I doubt Dan realised how rewarding the job would be, and spending quality time with his boy made it all extra special.

What I loved about this story was the way the author effortlessly mo

This story centers around Charley and his soccer team. Charley's dad, Dan, gets wrangled into coaching the soccer team, all the while continuing to practice law, working on a case where his friend, Arthur, is accused of stealing money from his own company. The "twist" I was expecting was Arthur admitting he stole the money when the case settled. Boy, was I ever wrong! The twist is something entirely different.

The Jersey is an engrossing, delightful and heartbreaking glimpse into the life of a modern American family man. With characters, living, breathing and universally human, Rosenberg captures the feel, the complexity, and the meaning of real life, true love and community; the glory of youth sports and the ongoing, universal struggle for justice. Absorbing from start to finish.

Really enjoyed this book very much and I think readers will be able to relate to a couple of the story lines as I did. The author has an excellent story telling capacity which makes both of his books not only very easy to read but entertaining while keeping the reader guessing. The author was also not afraid to take some risks in this book which led to a wide range of emotions.

James F Rosenberg has written a beautiful story with The Jersey. I have to admit, I was not sure what to expect with this one. When I was about a third of the way through, I realized I just could not stop listening to the audio version of it. The combination of the author’s writing and the superb performance of Brian Avers’s narration, brought on numerous emotions from me. I found parts of it that just warmed my heart and others that just tore me to pieces and had to grab the tissues. What a won ...more

This slice-of-life story felt familiar and real. The trials and tribulations of parenting and coaching youth sports, combined with the love story between two of the main characters while they balanced family life and professional life were spot on. I really enjoyed this book.
