A Prayer For Owen Meany, Paperback / softback Book

A Prayer For Owen Meany Paperback / softback


'If you care about something you have to protect it.

If you're lucky enough to find a way of life you love, you have to find the courage to live it.' Eleven-year-old Owen Meany, playing in a Little League baseball game in Gravesend, New Hampshire, hits a foul ball and kills his best friend's mother.

Owen doesn't believe in accidents; he believes he is God's instrument.

What happens to Owen after that 1953 foul ball is both extraordinary and terrifying.
