But not everyone is accepting of an open lesbian on a men's ball team, and Amy finds the harassment hard to take. Thank goodness she's found a fulfilling relationship with Stacy McCrady, and still has the friendship and support of sportswriter Lisa Collins. When personal tragedy strikes, Amy goes into a tailspin, and both her game and her union with Stacy suffer brutal blows. It takes a true team effort to get her back on track in both parts of her life. In Two for the Show, readers are reunited with characters they met in Paynter's Playing for First, and they'll be introduced to several new players who demonstrate why baseball is really just a metaphor for the game of life.

Inhaltsangabe: Amy Perry's dreams have come true: she's the starting first baseman on a major league baseball team. Unfortunately, not everyone accepts an out and proud lesbian in the macho world of men's baseball. In addition to adapting to life in the big leagues, Amy also has to learn to cope with harassment from many sources. Thank goodness she can count on her loving relationship with her partner, Stacy McCrady, and the friendship and support of sportswriter Lisa Collins, who travels with the team to report on every game. Then personal tragedy strikes. Amy's game suffers badly, but her union with Stacy bears the real damage. Help comes from some unexpected sources, including one of Amy's male teammates and her former coach, as well as from Lisa, who has just been through a crisis of her own with her partner, Frankie Dunkin. Chris Paynter's Playing for First introduced Amy Perry and Lisa Collins to readers and gave them a taste of the excitement that could come from a female athlete breaking the "jockstrap barrier" and making it into a sport that only men have played. In Two for the Show, Ms. Paynter irrefutably demonstrates that baseball is really just a metaphor for the game of life. Step up to the plate and take your best swing. Two for the Show is sure to be a hit with long-time baseball fans and newcomers alike.
