Giveaway - Follow Me - Joanna Scott


Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group I have a copy of Joanna Scott's latest book Follow Me to giveaway. It's a fantastic read - here's my review. Or here's what the publisher has to say...

"On a summer day in 1946 Sally Werner, the precocious young daughter of hardscrabble Pennsylvania farmers, secretly accepts her cousin's invitation to ride his new motorcycle. Like so much of what follows in Sally's life, it's an impulsive decision with dramatic and far-reaching consequences. Soon she abandons her home to begin a daring journey of self-creation, the truth of which she entrusts only with her granddaughter and namesake, six decades later. But when young Sally's father--a man she has never known--enters her life and offers another story altogether, she must uncover the truth of her grandmother's secret history. Boldly rendered and beautifully told, in FOLLOW ME Joanna Scott has crafted a paean to the American tradition of re-invention and a sweeping saga of timeless and tender storytelling."

Giveaway is open to Canada and the US, no PO boxes please. Leave a comment to be entered. An extra entry if you're a follower or become one. (Let me know!) Please make sure I have a way to contact you, either by email or through your web page. Giveaway runs until May 23 at 6pm EST. Good luck and check the sidebar for ongoing giveaways!
