The final chapters of Scott Waldie’s iconic Travers Corners trilogy. Travers Corners, Montana, is not much more than Main Street. There’s Ed’s Garage and Filling Station; McCracken’s General Store--still owned and run by Junior, the worst fisherman who ever lived to fish; the Tin Cup Bar and Cafe; Dolores’s Beauty Parlor; and The Carrie Creek Boat Works and Guide Service--Judson C. Clark proprietor. And yet, Travers Corners is also much more than that main street: it’s an outpost for all things wild and beautiful--rivers and creeks, wildlife, cattle ranches, glaciated benchlands sweeping into the timbered mountains. Travers is a fly-fishing paradise. And it is people with the same cast of "witty homespun characters” (Library Journal) as Waldie’s first book of stories, Travers Corners. Now, in Travers Corners: The Final Chapters, Waldie delivers the final volume in the series, bringing joy and tears, love and closure to the lives of the characters we’ve grown to know and care so much about. The simplicity of the rural West beckons from every tale: wisdom, trust, and good deeds, the loyalty of friends, the love of wild places, a respect for all living things--written with a wit that puts it all in perspective. The world would be a better place if we had all spent a spell in Travers Corners.

Travers Corners, if visited by a dedicated urbanite, would be seen as nothing more than a windblown gas station of a town that would make the middle of nowhere look like Metropolis. It’s a town of 329 beloved residents, from Dolores, who runs the beauty parlor, to Junior McCracken, the worst fisherman to never give up the sport, to Judson C. Clark, boatbuilder and Carrie Creek’s occasional guide. But Travers Corners is more than just a gas station of a town. It’s a destination for fly fishing—a paradise made of the finest trout waters ever seen, with rivers and creeks sweeping past cattle ranches, tall grasses, and off into the timbered mountains. In Scott Waldie’s Return to Travers Corners are stories of small town friendships and fights, of famous fishermen and unlucky anglers, of trout so big they’re practically mythical, and of the ones that got away—in love and on the water. The tales of Travers Corners hearken to a simpler, more enticing world of wild places, good deeds, and the friends made along the way. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Welcome to Travers Corners, a dusty Montana town, where nothing much has happened since Herbert Hoover stopped for gas. Travers Corners, like most small towns, has no newspaper, no radio station; but here, large trout—no better than large trout, fictitious trout—await the angler. And apart from spreading gossip outside the McCraken’s General Store, the residents of Travers Corners love nothing more than fly fishing. Scott Waldie’s delightful cast of characters breathes life into this tiny, out-of-the-way town. Meet Judson C. Clarke, boat builder and some-time guide down the waters of Carrie Creek. Jud’s best friend Henry knows his way around just about everything, and has a story and a laugh for everyone. Meet Dolores, the belle of Travers Corners; Sarah, who fled from New York City in search of quiet and community; Doc, who loves his profession and fly fishing—and not necessarily in that order—; Ed, the mechanic who’s too patriotic to work on imports; and so many more enormous personalities. Waldie’s warmth, wit, and shrewd eye for characterization, evokes a deep nostalgia for times past and quirky communities. For fly fishers everywhere, Travers Corners will be a second home.

Can a link remain between a daughter and the mother she never knew? Monique Dubois, born a child of privilege and affluence, witnesses the destruction of her entire family as Hitler's armies invade France in 1940. In the years that follow, both her innocence and her material possessions are lost. Her passion for freedom carries her into the dark and dangerous world of espionage, working alongside her friend, Zoë, a gifted movie star, who finds a useful outlet for her talent in the sinister corners of Paris working as an agent for the French resistance. As time passes, the gentle, compassionate girl she was becomes buried behind the walls of a resistance fighter. Then a handsome American airman arrives, and Monique begins to think there might be a life left for her after all. Her Mother's Heart spans decades and generations as it follows Angelina on a quest to discover the truth about her mother. Author Mary Travers's intriguing, romantic novel tells two stories—one of Monique in the 1940s and one of Angelina in late-1960s, both linked by a common desire for truth and love. As Angelina is propelled forward, deeper into the truths behind her mother's former life, she finally realizes the depths and capacity of Her Mother's Heart.
