Today I have the pleasant honor of presenting to you all the shiny-new cover for Rachel Heffington's debut novel, Fly Away Home!
back cover synopsis
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.

This project occupies a close place in my heart because Rachel's been keeping everyone who follows her blog in the loop since the conception of Fly Away Home. The snippets and excerpts she's shared on The Inkpen Authoress over the past two years or so have duly won our hearts to Callie and Mr. Barnett and the tangled tale in which they find themselves. Having read, laughed, and cried my way through the book myself, I have it on good authority that this is a story you won't want to miss. Mark your calendars for February 14th, dear ones — Fly Away Home is due to release on St. Valentine's Day!
about the author
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.com.
