“ERRORS” is a novel PG, that takes place in Northern California during the mid-sixties and continues through the early eighties. This story chronicles the events of these times and how three friends’ lives affected an entire community, through strength, courage and character. It was a time not far removed from the polite, modest and respectful influences of the World War II generation. Many changes were taking place in this area of California. An evolution of music was happening. Many of the legendary bands grew in family garages from this region to the world stage. The beginning of the computer age and the advancement of electronics took place here. The aerospace industry was in full bloom and this part of California played a prominent role in its development. It was also a time of social change, with the civil rights movement, the women’s rights movement and the widespread divisiveness over the Vietnam War. Although the media made it seem like everyone was a “Hippie,” that movement was a small part of our society.
This story revolves around the backdrop of high school baseball, yet the narrative is not about baseball, but life during those changing time. The detail of the story makes the reader feel as if they are part of the adventure, in a word, ‘captivating’. It gives an in-depth look at life, of what it could, and should be. It is the small things in this story that make it GRAND.
The female protagonist Carrie, possibly the smartest girl in the entire school, had always purposefully played her appearance down, creating an image of a mousy nerd. She did not care for the attention of the typical high school boys. Carrie was forced by her overbearing father to take a job scorekeeping for the boys’ varsity baseball team. Much to her surprise the boys’ baseball team changed the way she approached life. Errors were made both on the field of play and in her life, altering her existence forever.
This is one of the most fascinating books I have read in a long time.... The range of emotions evoked from this book are full spectrum with tissues needed to be kept handy while reading this one. Heartwarming, heart wrenching, clear around to Heart fulfilling, this book has it all. Best fictional story I have read in many years. The door is left open for a sequel and I would heartily welcome one to it. This is one that would be on my list of must reads and I will read it again and again. Great job Mike Maseda in the creation of this book. Amazon 5 Star review by Marlena Nobles
Cindy Thompson Caton: I Loved the book and thank you. I never seemed to know where it was going next with a lot of laughing and a lot of tears. I could not put it down as I needed to know what happened next Please let me know when your next one comes out.
Sue Garren: Please know that I absolutely LOVED the book. I laughed and I cried and that is the sign of a wonderful read for me. I love the way you captured the essence of the characters and the time frame just really took me back to a time that I remember well...and the feelings that time evoked. Well done, Mike...and when is the next book coming out?
Carol Breeze: I don't know where to start this, so I'm going to jump right in. I'm a reader. sometimes 4 or 5 books a week. I saved up to buy Errors. The first few pages I thought oh no, a teen age love story. I'm so glad my obsession made me continue. I feel like my heart was pulled out and given a healing massage. That was the best read in many years. Not one sex scene, no bad language, a sport that we all love and a story so powerful and touching that I am thankful I got to read it. Bless your wonderful heart to have shared this with the world. I'm still tearful………………
I just can't stop thinking about the book and the characters and how unfair life can be. But they rise above life's disasters and sorrows and are even better people. Your book touched me Mike.
