That's when sportswriter David Voyant whisks Duke to the one-horse town of Picksville, Missouri, so he can sober up in anonymity. He bides his time flirting with Ellie Jane Voyant, his unofficial chaperone, who would rather hide herself in the railway station ticket booth than face the echoes of childhood taunts. Ned Clovis, the feed store clerk, has secretly loved Ellie Jane since childhood, but he loves baseball and the Duke almost as much-until he notices Ellie Jane may be succumbing to the star's charm. Then there's Morris, a twelve-year-old boy, whose only dream is to break away from Picksville. When Duke discovers his innate talent for throwing a baseball, Morris might just have found his way out. Four individuals, each living in haunted isolation, each harboring a secret passion. Providence brings them together. Tragedy threatens to tear them apart. Will love be enough to bring them home?

Stealing Home took me by surprise with gripping characters who dare to defy traditions of race, relationships, and what it means to be a woman, a man, a friend. With baseball in the 1900s as a metaphor, Stealing Home is a skillfully woven story about believing in the game of life, love, and ultimately in the victory of change. Tina Ann Forkner, author of Ruby Among Us and Rose House
There is no doubt about it. Stealing Home has earned a place on my keeper shelf. Allison Pittmans wonderfully drawn characters captured my heart and never let go. I hurt with them, laughed with them, loved with them, and cried with them, and I will surely never forget them. Dont miss this book! Robin Lee Hatcher, best-selling author of Wagered Heart and A Vote of Confidence
The fabulous ensemble cast of Stealing Home broadens the scope of Allison Pittmans well-crafted novel, setting it apart from typical period romances and grounding the story with historical relevance. Yes, readers will want Ellie Jane to find love, but theyll want much more than that, toojustice for Morris; hope for Ned; peace and victory for Duke. And they wont be disappointed. Stealing Home drew me in from the first pitch and held me until the final strikeout. Christa Parrish, author of Home Another Way
Allison Pittman hit one out of the park with Stealing Home. The superb cast of characters in this tender story of hope, love, and healing settled in my soul and made me long to stroll down to the town square and linger a while. An unexpected delight in this lovely tale was the narration by Morris, an innocent yet perceptive young man who knows the citizens of Picksville better than they know themselves. More than the story of a few characters, Stealing Home is a study of small town life at its very worst and its shining best. Megan DiMaria, author of Out of Her Hands and Searching for Spice
Allison Pittman is a master at creating a fictional world so real youll never want to leave it. She balances light humor with insights into romance that make you re-examine your own heart and soul. She keeps you guessing all the way to the grand slam of an ending. And when she writes about baseball, you feel as if the bats in your own hand, swinging at the fastest ball you ever saw. Stealing Home covers all the basesa home run of a novel. Caroline Coleman, author of Loving Soren
Written with an elegant flair, Stealing Home is a tremendous story of love, patience, and hope against hope. Alice J. Wisler, author of Rain Song and How Sweet It Is
