What they don’t know is that Freedom Oliver is a fake name. They don’t know that she was arrested for killing her husband, a cop, twenty years ago. They don’t know she put her two kids up for adoption. They don’t know that she’s now in witness protection, regretting ever making a deal with the Feds, and missing her children with a heartache so strong it makes her ill.
Then, she learns that her daughter has gone missing, possibly kidnapped. Determined to find out what happened, Freedom slips free of her handlers, gets on a motorcycle, and heads for Kentucky, where her daughter was raised. As she ventures out on her own, no longer protected by the government, her troubled past comes roaring back at her: her husband’s vengeful, sadistic family; her brief, terrifying stint in prison; and the family she chose to adopt her kids who are keeping dangerous secrets.
Written with a ferocious wit and a breakneck pace, Freedom’s Child is a thrilling, emotional portrait of a woman who risks everything to make amends for a past that haunts her still.
I don't have too much to say, seeing how I only made 60 pages in before I gave up. The premise and the writing was on point, but the characters were a bit... I don't know, too much for me. As for as I got the only sane person was Mason. The others were drunks and crazies upon crazies, including Freedom. Every other chapter starts out with "My name is Freedom and..." it got annoying real quick after that.
I did flip through the book to see if it got any better, but sadly did not. I did read the last four chapters in book and I loved those, especially the ending.
It wasn't for me as I thought it was going to be when I read the blurb and requested it. Though I can see how people would love this. It is good, but I couldn't take the characters no more and the repetitive "My name is Freedom and..."
I received this book courtesy of Blogging For Books for review purposes.
