A stunning saga of love, sport, and buried secrets

Rob Carrey is a successful documentary filmmaker who has returned from a shoot to New York City, where he's prepared to separate from Carolyn, his long-time love. But when he finds an invitation to his boarding school reunion in his pile of mail, Rob begins a painful journey into his past--one that will alter the course of his life forever.

Years ago, Rob was a scholarship student at the elite Fenton School, where he became a star member of the rowing team. Generations of Fenton men had led the rowing team, known as the God Four, to victory--and Rob would be no exception. But as the team's most important race drew near, and tempers and lusts reached the boiling point, Rob found himself in a dilemma: If he sacrifices everything to win he stands to lose everything that matters. Which is the right path--and where will it lead him and the ones he loves? That is the question at the heart of Ron Irwin's Flat Water Tuesday, a deeply affecting novel about what it means to fight for love and victory, in sport and in life.

Flatwater Tuesday

It is about the effects that tragedies may have, how quickly a life can change, and how things that seem significant when we are young frequently look insignificant as we become older. Parts of this book are incredibly intense, and I adore the author's writing style. I also admire that he gave Carry a career as a documentary filmmaker in his latter years, which was also true of the author. The novel starts with a letter before jumping back and forth in time to tell the tale of the God Four and John Carrey's present. I was smitten. I am aware that numerous novels on school have been published, some of them excellent and others not.
