5 FREEDOM STARS
This is my first Melissa Brown book and I am in awe! What an absolutely amazing and beautifully original read. I was completely engrossed and read this in mere hours. I could not put it down.
I can’t begin to talk about the story without giving too much away. What I will say is that it’s a story about Brinley, a young woman, who does not belong in her current life. As she seeks her new life and waits for her inner voice to grow from a whisper to a scream, she encounters, Porter Hammond. He knows Brinley’s current world and was banished from it. Damned to hell. These two form an immediate bond that grows and prospers despite what may seem like insurmountable obstacles.
“I told you, you’re my heaven. If I burn when I die, that’s fine. I’m a selfish man and I want my heaven now.”
This is a moving, captivating story of one finding the courage to seek out love and freedom at all costs. It's about another healing from the deepest rejection possible and finding the inner strength to put the pieces back together again. And it’s about finding out who your true friends are and the bonds you make with those despite circumstance or religious beliefs or differences.
Brilliant story! I will be checking out more from Melissa Brown, that's for sure!
