Ashley Hasty, who recently took my novel The Scent of Rain on vacation, is the book blogger behind the Hasty Book List. She asked me to share my thoughts on a whole bunch of topics. And, big mouth that I am, I was happy to comply.
Anne Montgomery’s novel, The Scent of Rain, tells the story of two Arizona teenagers whose fates become intertwined. Rose flees into the mountains to escape from her abusive polygamous community where her only future is marriage to a man older than her father. Adan, whose only wish is to be reunited with his mother, is on the run from the cruelties of the foster care system. Are there any adults they can trust? Can they even trust each other? The Scent of Rain is available at https://www.indiebound.org/book/9780996390149 and wherever books are sold.
