About the Book    Never Let Go follows a young lady weaving her way from Northern Ontario to the streets of Atlanta as an Olympic competitor. When Laurentian University budgetary restrictions leave first year student Cailin Ristimaki bereft of a track coach, she is led to accept guidance from new faculty member Soren Larson. He had been Canadian technical director of cross-country skiing and resigned his position after a contract breach by his Board. Recently separated from his wife, Soren probes his way in his new job but growing exuberance for guiding Cailin's running threatens his quest for tenure and his son´s custody.
