Review of Throw like a Woman by Susan Petrone

This book wouldn’t have been my first choice to read since I usually read historically based fiction and romance, but I’m glad I read it. The concept of a woman pitching in the major leagues is a novel idea. I found the characters very engaging and highly recommend reading it.
Brenda Haversham is a divorced 40 year old mother of 2 boys. When she was a kid, Brenda’s father taught her how to throw a good fastball. That wasn’t of much use to a girl, but it is enough to astound onlookers at a “test your speed” pitching cage before a Cleveland Indians game. The more Brenda pictures her ex-husband’s face on the other end, the harder she throws. Can a woman make it in the Major Leagues?
