To give her son something to do, Rayeline Parker sends her son, Owen, to the local golf course to take lessons. He turns out to be a natural, and gets nicknamed Opur by the pro, J. Dub, and the others old duffers at the course.
Opur’s Blade by James Ross is a combination suspense/mystery novel that follows Opur on his rise to golf stardom, and the physical and emotional turmoil he has to endure.
Well crafted, with just the right mix of pathos and humor, this book is perfect for a last summer day at the beach. I give it four stars.
