by Patricia Nell Warren
To have runners like those three on my little team had been the hurting dream ever since I'd left Penn State. I was ready to get mad at them for breaking into my peaceful exile. I made one last attempt to put up a front.
To have runners like those three on my little team had been the hurting dream ever since I'd left Penn State. I felt overcome by memories and pain. The moment I first saw the Oregon three, I felt a vague unease. What makes you think I'll understand? What makes you think I won't give you a big lecture on the morality and purity of the American boy?"

In 1975, coach Harlan Brown is hiding from his past at an obscure New York college, after he was fired from Penn State University on suspicion of being gay. A tough, lonely ex-Marine of 39, Harlan has never allowed himself to love another man.
Then Billy Sive, a brilliant young runner, shows up on his doorstep. He and his two comrades, Vince Matti and Jacques LaFont, were just thrown off a major team for admitting they are gay. Harlan knows that, with proper training, Billy could go to the '76 Olympics in Montreal. He agrees to coach the three boys under strict conditions that thwart Billy's growing attraction for his mature but compelling mentor. The lean, graceful front runner with gold-rim glasses sees directly into Harlan's heart. Billy's gentle and open acceptance of his sexuality makes Harlan afraid to confront either the pain of his past, or the challenges which lay in wait if their intimacy is exposed.
But when Coach Brown finds himself falling in love with his most gifted athlete, he must combat his true feelings for Billy or risk the outrage of the entire sports world - and their only chance at Olympic gold.
