For Immediate Release
Nashville author, Art Pellett, writing as A.H. Pellett, is pleased to announce the publication of his second novel, Off the Fairway – A Lesson in the Woods. It is a comedic coming-of-age story that may remind some readers of the laugh-out-loud golf movies of the 1980’s. Others may appreciate it for its tender treatment of the serious subject of war induced post-traumatic stress.
John Russell is a decorated veteran of World War II. Awarded medals of heroism for saving the lives of two men during a ferocious battle, he is home and happily running a classic golf course dedicated in his honor. John’s son, Bart, a bright and fun-loving teenager with dreams of running the operation himself one day, works there too.
But dreams don’t always come true and some memories are worse than others. John begins to suffer disabling recollections of the battle and his “friends” begin to notice. Financial disaster, complete with lawsuits and likely bankruptcy soon follow.
His own dreams shattered and his father in ruins, Bart faces his own crisis. Meanwhile, something deep is a work, both pushing and pulling him, and it is more important than his life goals and bigger than his dreams could ever imagine.
