Local author Maggie Plummer has published a new novel entitled “Bell-Bottom Gypsy: A Jessie Morgan Novel.” The first in a four-book series, the novel is a departure from the author’s two works of historical fiction, “Spirited Away” and “Daring Passage.”

Bell-Bottom Gypsy takes the reader on a wild 1970s ride – an adventurous coming of age journey along America’s back roads. Playing a major role in the main character’s voyage of self-discovery is Flathead Lake, Montana, in 1972.

The novel follows 20-year-old Jessie Morgan, who is fed up with pretty much everything. It’s September 1971 – time to drop out, tune in, and turn on. She leaves college and Detroit in the rearview mirror, hitting the road in her 1965 yellow Volkswagen convertible. Wandering the country’s byways from Kentucky to Key West to Polson, Mont., Jessie is out to experience everything.

She didn’t count on meeting a man like Twisty.

“The early ‘70s were quite a time,” Plummer said. “I think baby boomers and wanna-be baby boomers are going to enjoy this book.”

Reviewers are describing the novel as a “tightly crafted tale” that’s “priceless.”

Bell-Bottom Gypsy is recommended for mature readers due to plenty of 1970s-era sex, drugs and cussing.

Both the paperback and Kindle e-book editions are available on Amazon.com

The paperback is also available at Super One Foods in Polson.
