Freedom Oliver has plenty of secrets. She lives in a small Oregon town and keeps mostly to herself. Her few friends and neighbors know she works at the local biker bar; they know she gets arrested for public drunkenness almost every night; they know she’s brash, funny, and fearless.

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.

  Ohh Wow what a very powerful and dark book was Freedom's Child that I absolutely love and enjoy every bit of it. I will tell you all the truth I had no idea what was the plot or concept of this book all I know that it was a mystery thriller and suspense book. Which I have read a lot of mystery thrillers before but not quite like this one before and I really loved that aspect of this book. It was really a refreshing read for me, now there are many trigger warning for Freedom's Child this is a real dark book about violence, revenge, redemption and actually hope if you can believe it. If you don't like dark books with heavy trigger warning than this book is not for you, there where are few things that I a cringe and didn't like but I didn't let that detour me from reading this book. I have been wanted too spread my reading experience with books that I don't usually read and this is one of the books that I know I would never have pick up when I was much younger. But the plot and concept hooked me from the very beginning I couldn't put this book down. I absolutely love the whole complexity of Freedom's Child especially all the characters yes even the pure evil villains in this book, and I tell you the villains are pure evil and derange that I was petrified about them I always got chills running down my back when I was reading about them. I can also really see that the author study and learn everything for the concept of this book and I think she did an absolute fantastic job describing everything for us in Freedom's Child. That I absolutely felt just horrible for what Freedom Oliver has been through in this book like this women has been through hell and back and I just wanted too give Freedom a hug and cry with her for all the horrible and injustice that she went through in her life. But there is always hope and faith and that's exactly what we see at the end of this book even though it was a bittersweet ending we still see hope and love at the end, that I actually got teary eyed reading the end especially the twist the author wrote right at the end that put a teary smile while I was reading the last paragraph of Freedom's Child. I really do highly recommend Freedom's Child but beware this book is really dark with a lot of trigger warning in it. If you can handle that than please do give this amazing and fantastic book a try!
