Book Giveaway and Blog Tour: Follow Me by Joanna Scott

About the Book: 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.

Giveaway: I'm giving way THREE sets of the book Follow Me along with Joanna Scott's story collection Everybody Loves Somebody. I'll be reviewing Everybody Loves Somebody as part of my attempt to expose myself to my short stories, and it would be fun to get the winner's perspective as well!

To be eligible, leave me a comment with a valid email address and tell me what author you would love to meet in person! You must have a Canadian or United States street address to win.

Thanks all! If you want to learn more about the book, check out Wendy's Review.
