  Awesome!!!!
  I received your book in the mail yesterday. I figured I would read
  a few chapters to get acquanted. 18 chapters later at one in the
  morning I put it down. Not because I wanted to but because I
  had to get some sleep. Before I got out of bed this morning,
  I finished the remaining 10 Chapters. One of the few books I
  have read where I didn't want to put it down until I was finished.
  Congratulations, you have a winner! It brought about all 
  emotions. I laughed out loud and cried to myself as I read it.
  You don't have to love golf to appreciate what a great read this
  is.

  I was captivated by the love story. I couldn't put it down and
  read it in one afternoon and a night. I loved it! I'll be looking 
  forward to the sequel.

  I loved the book. She (the main character)
  kind of reminded me of myself in places.

  I really enjoyed it. My mother said she cried when she
  read it. I can't wait for the day when I walk into a
  bookstore and see it on the shelves.

  I was reading it on a flight, and I was crying
  so much other passengers asked me if I was OK.
  I loved it.

Once I picked up and started reading Pops and Sunshine, I
  could not put it down. As a golf coach for many years it struck
  me not as a fictitious tale but one that could very well be true.
  There are a lot of stories out there and Dave has captured the
  essence of a great read. If this novel does not touch you then
  you are not a true golfer.

  I finished the book and loved it! I am passing it on to others.
  Thanks very much for sharing it with me.

  I loved the book! My wife is reading it now. We at the University 
  of Tulsa have three players who will be going to the tour
  qualifying school next season, and I am sure this will be a very
  interesting read for them too.

  I couldn't put it down. You have a great talent for
  painting word pictures, something that keeps a reader
  hanging. I will also say that it is one of the most emotional
  books I have ever read.
  What a love story!

  I must tell you I had a difficult time putting it down. I hung onto
  every word that I read. I felt like I was in Lisa's world and was
  feeling her emotions, her highs and lows.
  Your story, Pops and Sunshine, has made me see just how
  hard these ladies have to work to get to where they are today.

  I want to congratulate you on a wonderful story. I had a  
  lump in my throat, tears in my eyes, and laughter throughout
  the whole book. It was a great experience.

  Whether you know golf or not, Pops and Sunshine is a book
  to make you feel good about life and people. I am the daughter
  of, but not myself a golfer, so I know only what I learned in this
  amazing book and some comments from my dad. But as an
  avid reader, I found this story pleasantly suspenseful and the
  characters so full of the kind, caring quality of life inside and
  out, that this world sorely needs more examples of, that I could     not put it down until I had gone cover to cover. I am glad there
  is a sequel in the works and await it impatiently. And I hope
  Mr. Andrews does not stop there! His talent is a true and
  uplifting gift for all of us to enjoy.

  Smile, cry, and laugh; it's golf. Pops and Sunshine gives us
  an honest slice of golf and life. If you have ever struggled with
  the hazards of either, author Dave Andrews will have you
  hooked and asking for more!

  It was a fabulous story and you captured all the “right stuff” –  
  the drama, humor, pathos, suspense, and the exhilarating  
  feeling of watching a 60-foot putt approach the cup.
  Thank you for sharing your novel.

  That was the best book I have ever read. I caught myself  
'  choking up more than a few times during the book. I can really
  relate to Rob and Lisa, mostly because they are about my
  age. You really captured the love of two young kids.  It was  
  inspirational. Anyone who reads it will instantly fall in love with
  the characters and your writing. ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC
  Great Job!
  Please keep writing novels

  I Just finished Pops and Sunshine. I have never played golf but
  enjoy the game as a spectator. Rochester is host to the
  Wegman's LPGA tournament and I have always enjoyed the
  drama of that week. After reading Pops and Sunshine, next
  summer's event will be even more exciting for me.
  The joy of reading is to be effortlessly drawn into the story and
  to feel not only the emotions of the characters, but equally
  important, to be able to touch your own. Pops and Sunshine
  excels in both. I sure hope Mr. Andrews publishes a sequel
  soon.

  Bravo!  I think it may well have as much  
  commercial promise as it has the game of golf nailed to a tee!
  Charles Scribner III

  OK, so perhaps the familiar cast of characters and the fact 
  that I learned to play at CCC are making this really special for 
  me, but I'm only at the end of Lisa's first round and I'm sitting 
  here all weepy and ripping through this novel when I'm
  supposed to be working.
  This is a terrific story. I'm thoroughly enjoying it, and it's
  making me homesick!! I have no doubt some smart publisher  
  will jump on this.Good luck!
  Susan Browning

  Every golfer will LOVE this story. I think anyone who 
  reads it will love it also. It brought tears to my eyes.
  Excellent work!

  If you're a golfer and you love New Hampshire, you must
  read Pops and Sunshine. From the description of the
  drive up I-93, to familiar spots in and around Concord, the
  author's love of the area is evident.
  Dave Andrews captured the motivation and drive of
  golfers at all levels in his story.
  If you haven't read the book, you must go out and get it.

  It is truly a wonderful story! I could not put it down until
  I finished it.
