“Rachel York’s book, “Chasing Lightning”, is one of those reads that you won’t easily forget. The author has managed to build some great characters that surprise the readers through their complexity and realistic development. The relationship between Scarlett and Gina is well-built. There’s seduction, teasing, and then steamy, yet sweet, encounters that mean a lot to the characters and the readers. Each love affair teaches Scarlett something about herself and about what she is looking for.” ~ from ipublishersnew.com
Chasing Lightning (new release edition) is the provocative story of Scarlett Faye Turner’s coming-of-age in the 1960s. Her journey into sexual self-discovery and acceptance is at times hilarious, sometimes shocking, and always entertaining.
When she isn’t mouthing off and scandalizing just about everybody in the backward river town of Dillinger, Pennsylvania, Scarlett has her nose buried in a book dreaming of a life far away where fame and money can keep her safe from the bogeymen of her childhood and the consequences of following her heart.
Scarlett believes falling in love makes you as crazy as her neighbor who chases thunderstorms with her camera. She is positive no one in their right mind would risk being struck by lightning any more than they would by love. But that resolve quickly crumbles when seductive Gina Jamison shows up Scarlett’s senior year and knocks her heart sideways.
Their improbable meeting and steamy love affair starts Scarlett on a journey that will take her across the years and through a succession of lovers…from a women’s college in West Virginia to the magical desert of New Mexico to the sexual liberation of Paris in the 1960s…from the arms of a woman she can never forget to the depths of her own soul and a painful realization that promises to transform her completely.
Witty, steamy, great fun! ~ Review by S. Stinson (Vine Voice)
