My Family’s Keeper
Rating: 3 / 5
This book is one of two stories—of a sportsman with an incredible drive to achieve his best, and of a child.
For cricket fans, there are many tales of gruelling training, incidents within games, familiar cricket personalities, and specific statistics of Haddin’s career in a section at the back of the book.
But this book is more than a detailing of his skills on the field. It’s about the characteristics he developed through sport, and those of his wife Karina, a champion sportswoman in her own right (and a woman of great strength).
These characteristics equipped them for the biggest battle anyone could face, to save their 16-month-old daughter. It’s a story of “team effort and achievement” that will move you through smiles and tears.
