An award-winning supernatural thriller about baseball, beer, and love that is stronger than death, The End of Ending hums with a motor running on pure hope. Dive into the story that was named best Catholic novel in the 2021 Catholic Media Association's book awards, and was selected for inclusion in the National Baseball Hall of Fame Archives.
Bryant is single-heartedly dedicated to crafting beer that pulls people together, starting with the beer stand he runs at the minor league baseball stadium in Andover, Indiana. Though he's a long way from his home on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota, he's determined to make Black Fox Brewing a force for good in this small Midwestern city.
When a biology grad student named Estelline walks into his life, Bryant's purposefulness widens to welcome a blooming relationship. At the same time, Estelline's research reveals a medical mystery: a group of elderly men are unmistakably growing younger. In fact, they've begun training their rejuvenating bodies by forming a baseball team; some are even using their newfound strength to support the threatened migrant farmworker community on the outskirts of town.
Just as Estelline's work points to the fact that other people in town have stopped aging as well, a stunning disaster throws both her and Bryant into a very different story than they had envisioned together. Can baseball and Bryant's beer bring out the best in the people of Andover? And what will Bryant risk to find out if this strange epidemic is not only making people younger, but transforming the bounds of human life? Is love truly stronger than death?
