It is my pleasure to present to you the cover of Rachel Heffington's debut novel Fly Away Home.
Fly Away Home
1952 New York City
Callie Harper is a woman set to make it big in the world of journalism. Liberated from all but her buried and troubled past, Callie craves glamour and the satisfaction she knows it will bring. When one of America's most celebrated journalists, Wade Barnett, calls on Callie to help him with a revolutionary project, Callie finds herself co-pilot to a Christian man whose life and ideas of true greatness run noisily counter to hers on every point. But when the secrets of Callie's past are hung over her head as a threat, there is space for only one love, one answer: betray Wade Barnett to save her reputation, or sacrifice everything for the sake of the man she loved and the God she fled. The consequences of either decision will define the rest of her life.
Self-preservation has never looked more tempting.
Let us take a moment to appreciate the beauty, the perfection, of this cover. I have had the privilege of watching Fly Away Home grow from an idea to a novel on the brink of "coming out," and this cover is, to me, a perfect encapsulation of the pathos of the story: cold New York at night, lit up with that old but flimsy promise of starting a new life among the rush of independence and capitalism. It's a beautiful, beautiful cover - stay tuned for the story!
Rachel Heffington is a Christian, a novelist, and a people-lover. Encouraged by her mother to treasure books, Rachel's favorite pastime was (and still is) reading. When her own library and her cousin's ran out of interesting novels, twelve-year old Rachel decided she would write her own; thus began a love-affair with word-crafting that has carried her past her teen years and into adulthood. Outside of the realm of words, Rachel enjoys the Arts, traveling, mucking about in the kitchen, listening for accents, and making people laugh. She dwells in rural Virginia with her boisterous family and her black cat, Cricket. Visit Rachel online at www.inkpenauthoress.blogspot.comFly Away Home Releases February 14th, Valentine's Day!
