Barnes And Noble Press Hardcover Review: Is This For Real?!
Everything changes for both of them, though, when the Boston Orioles arrive in early s and Thelma becomes an unabashed baseball fanatic. Hilarity ensues. The second story, though, is the extraordinary journey of how this book came to be. They loved it! Based on that success, Mike encouraged Peggy to write a book, and the initial self-published printing sold 10, copies on eBay.
True, I did write the foreword. And my mother. Just to be clear. Today, Thelma would be described as an alpha personality, but while growing up, her daughter Peggy saw her as a dictator—albeit a benevolent, loving one. They clashed from the beginning—Peggy, the horse-crazy tomboy, and Thelma, the genteel-yet-still-controlling mother, committed to raising two refined, ladylike daughters. Good luck. When major league baseball came to town in the early s and turned sophisticated Thelma into a crazed Baltimore Orioles groupie, nobody was more surprised and embarrassed than Peggy.
