“There is also a mystery in the book and surprises, but mostly it is a look into the life of an abused person and how they fight to find themselves.”

“The wounded Cody and the patient Sebastian are perfect together as they explore the past only to find their future…”

“Some of RJ Scott’s scenes in The Gallows Tree are touching while others are heart-breaking in their pain and pathos. Ms. Scott’s descriptions of the environs of Mill Cottage are very real. You can almost hear the sounds of crunching fresh powder snow as Cody and Seb trudge across the fields. Likewise, the intimate moments shared by Cody and Seb are sweet in the care they take of each other’s feelings.”

Cody runs to England after an abusive relationship destroys his trust in love. He's inherited a cottage in a small village and needs somewhere to hide away and give himself time to heal.
