"It's wonderful how ice can be so warm..." Bobby Orr, from the foreword

This is a book about family, caring, the values we cling to, the people we love. In this collection of essays, writer Jack Falla's backyard hockey rink unexpectedly becomes a vital bridge to family and friends, a lens through which he looks at this life in a game he loves, a road leading back to the frozen ponds of a New England childhood and a mirror in which he stares down middle age. Or tries to.

Home Ice goes beyond being a sports book. It is a book for readers as interested in family, friends, and relationships as they are in last night's hockey scores.
