Blog Tour for Perception and Giveaway!!!

Excerpt: The Outlaw by Scott C. Davis:

Out on the winding Carolina back road where I lived, I had just one neighbor. I only ever saw him twice. He borrowed my lawn mower once when he first dragged his double wide into the abandoned trailer park, the one on the far side of the hill my own house slumped up against. He wanted to start out with a nice yard, he told me. Took him two weeks to return it. The other time I saw him? He robbed me. Came into my home and took everything I had left. Then he took all my stuff, too.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*

This collection of short stories are deep and thought provoking. Davis did a great job with the Outlaw story in setting the tone and setting for it. I could feel the sadness and depression feelings the character was going through. This isn't always so easy in a short story to do but Davis does it well.

There are several themes going on in this story and lessons I feel a reader can gain from it. You have a broken marriage, a man who has lost his direction in life and the outlaw who inadvertently helps him find himself again. These layers of themes give the story a depth that makes it easy to read and get involved in.

If you like stories that make you think then you will enjoy this book for sure!!
