In “Lion's Awakening” (published by WestBow Press), author Cindy Bingham’s new novel, readers follow Landon Steele as he comes to terms with the way his life is headed.
Landon Steele is a gifted and driven Penn State linebacker who has made a name for himself in the world of college football. But when a heroic, game-saving play ended in major injury, his dreams and future disappear. Four years have passed since his injury and, although it has healed, Landon’s life is still fractured.
As he gropes to fill the football void, he finds himself blaming God. Landon doesn’t have a playbook for life after football. Now he faces one crucial choice. Will this former Lion awaken to see what God has in store for him?
An excerpt from “Lion’s Awakening”:
“Landon could hear her mantra even now. ‘No way, no how, am I leaving this office, not until I’m so stiff they have to pry me from this chair.’ She hadn’t yet given any indication that anyone should get the crowbar. ‘Please, give me about twenty minutes,’ Landon said. Twenty minutes would be more than enough time to scratch out some words of regret and thanks. ‘I’ll have a letter ready for Bob Hughes. If you’d see that it’s delivered, I’d be grateful.’ ‘Of course, sir. Twenty minutes.’ Landon flopped down into his black leather desk chair and rubbed his throbbing temples. A short time later he hunched forward, resting his elbows on the desk and his chin on his hands.”
