When We Were Wolves

We Were Wolves is the story of  Tom Wingfield, who lives in a small Virginia town famous as the birthplace of U.S. presidents and Sonny Rawlins, America's most celebrated college coach. For thirty years, Tom has kept secret the truth about Rawlins. But a news story sets off a chain of events that entraps Tom and his family in a media storm. Only a desperate act can save Tom and the life he has built. 


Michael Gurian, New York Times bestselling author of The Wonder of Boys and The Stone Boys, says: "To enter the world of J.E. Tobin's When We Were Wolves is to immerse ourselves in a vital David and Goliath story ripped right from the headlines.  Truth and courage are pitted against lies, lawyers, and hero worship.  The writing is vivid and the plot relentless.  This novel brims with empathy and insight and will stay with the reader long after the last page is read.  And it may just change our perception of what makes someone a hero."  

When We Were Wolves is a riveting reminder of the power of secrets and love.
