Heartland PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Heartland free pdf It is Spring 2002 in the Black Country, with local elections looming. A mosque is being built on the site where iconic steelworks once dominated the town. "The Tipton Three" are in Guantanamo where the whites-only British National Party expect to win new seats on the council. Rob, once a professional soccer player like his famous father, is now a tracksuited teaching assistant, and a schoolboy whom he is teaching to read is stabbed in a gang attack. Within this cauldron, two local soccer teams, split along racial lines, play a Sunday league decider, billed by the press as "a match to spark race war." While England plays Argentina for the World Cup, the characters gather--Rob, Glenn, Jim, Tom, and Stacey behind the bar--to see what hope and solidarity they still share.
