Giveaway - Follow Me - Joanna Scott

Thanks to the generosity of The Hachette Book Group, I have three copies of Follow Me by Joanna Scott to giveaway. This is a title I reviewed last year and really enjoyed. It would be a great book club selection - and the reading group guide is already made for you .

From the publisher:

"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."

Read an excerpt of Follow Me.

To be entered, simply leave a comment. Open to US and Canada, no po boxes please. Ends Saturday Sept 11th at 6 pm EST. Check the sidebar for ongoing giveaways.
