Spiritually Uplifting

“A bitter, hardened coach, facing his own illness and inner demons, reluctantly agrees to lead a crew of cancer survivors in their quest for a national championship in a dragon boat race. Ultimately, the race becomes a metaphor not only for the struggle to survive but also a pathway for redemption.

Based on a true story, THE FINAL VICTORY is the kind of spiritually uplifting novel that you’ll want to share with everyone you know.

Learn What Really Matters

“In this excellent book, Roger Jones plumbs the depths of driven competitors in a powerful, compelling way. What does a father’s bitterness do to a talented son when cancer intrudes in ways that would smash most dreams? What does a gutty bunch of survivors do when challenged to defy their terrible pain and fear? In the end, they learn what really matters. Read this wonderful novel and you will as well.”

An inspiring and stirring tale of courage, THE FINAL VICTORY is inspired by the true story of a group of athletes who face life-threatening illnesses and are bonded together by their indomitable will to win. Jones gives us a novel that is equal parts laugh out loud funny, moving, and uplifting. You will love it!”

A Little Parable From Heaven

“I had about a hundred pages left when I started reading before bed last night. I was about to put it down and then couldn’t. So, I stayed up until the wee hours, knowing that I was leaving town very early. I just had to finish the story. This book is just a little parable from heaven. So much to learn from Tripp’s journey. So much a person could use to reflect upon their own strengths and weaknesses in how they deal with themselves and the people they love….Thank you for sharing the book with me. I love, love, love a good story told well
