OK, I’ve been a major slacker on the “book blog.” But I’m going to try to get going again.
Yesterday, I borrowed A Matter of Conscience by Sherry Hoppe from my local library. It’s the stranger-than-fiction story of former Auburn football star, Bobby Hoppe (1934-2008). He was a standout on Auburn’s 1957 National Championship team. 31 years later, he stood trial for a Chattanooga murder that occurred in the summer of 1957.
The book is by Bobby’s widow, Sherry. Sherry was once president of Austin Peay University in Tennessee. The book is very biased toward Bobby’s side of the case, but it’s a page turner. I didn’t start reading until after lunch, but I’d read 160+ pages before bedtime.
