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.

Annotation:
After a disturbing sexual encounter with her cousin in 1946, Sally Warner becomes a teenage mother and social outcast, drifting from town to town, assuming new identities, searching for peace and freedom while hounded by the demons of her past. Year later, Sally's granddaughter seeks to understand the trials and triumphs of her remarkable grandmother. Pulitzer-finalist Joanna Scott has created a lyrical and gripping vision of hardscrabble life in the heartland and byways of America. Selected by the New York Times Book Review as a Notable Book of 2009.

Praise

"Scott...has here fashioned a densely stitched crazy quilt of a story that...borrows from the conventions of a wealth of genres....[I]t produces a weird thrill." - Leah Hager Cohen 04/19/2009

"In her lyrical new novel,....Scott...excels in her stream-of-consciousness descriptions of the mysterious Tuskee that provides Sally's true north" - Caroline Preston 05/12/2009
