Please join me in congratulating Paula Scott on the publication of her new book, Leaving Lonesome! I had the privilege of helping Paula with a copyedit, and I helped design the cover for this emotional tale of love and redemption in the years following the Vietnam War. Here's the book description:
Sutter County, California, 1972
John Reno returns from Vietnam a disgraced army helicopter pilot wracked by guilt and grief. Homeless and alone he makes his way from one crop-dusting job to the next until he reaches the woman who can grant him redemption or ensure his damnation.
Swampy Callohan is a young widow barely holding on to her crop-dusting company. She flies her trusty old Stearmans from dawn until dusk, desperate to make it in a man’s world of faster, more efficient ag cat planes, but time, technology, and a family on the brink threaten to destroy her.
When John Reno—the best pilot she’s ever seen—arrives one fateful afternoon, she believes Callohan Dusters can be saved. And maybe her heart will be reborn as well. Reno becomes her saving grace until the day she discovers he harbors a secret that just might shatter her whole world.
Leaving Lonesome is available now in ebook and print format on Amazon. Add it to your shelves on Goodreads, and check out Paula's website for her inspirational posts about writing, family, and farm life.
