Into the Free

$6.99$3.99

<em>USA Today</em> says this is "a beautiful and literary coming-of-age romance that is as close to perfect as I've seen in quite some time." From the publisher: "In Depression-era Mississippi, Millie Reynolds longs to escape the madness that marks her world. With an abusive father and a 'nothing mama,' she struggles to find a place where she really belongs. For answers, Millie turns to the Gypsies who caravan through town each spring. The travelers lead Millie to a key that unlocks generations of shocking family secrets. When tragedy strikes, the mysterious contents of the box give Millie the tools she needs to break her family’s longstanding cycle of madness and abuse. Saturated in Southern ambiance and written in the vein of other Southern literary bestsellers like <em>The Help</em>, Julie Cantrell has created Into the Free—now a New York Times bestseller—a story that will sweep you away long after the novel ends."

From the publisher: "In a few hours, Millie will say 'I do' to Bump Anderson, a man who loves her through and through. But would he love her if he knew the secret she keeps?

So she decides to bury the truth and begin again, helping Bump launch a ranch in the wilds of Colorado. But the facts surface in the most challenging way. That's when Millie’s grandmother, Oka, arrives to help. Relying on her age-old Choctaw traditions, Oka teaches Millie the power of second chances. Millie resists, believing redemption is about as likely as moving mountains. But Oka stands strong, modeling forgiveness as the only true path to freedom. Together, Bump, Millie, and Oka fight against all odds to create a sustainable ranch, all while learning that the important lessons of their pasts can be used to build a beautiful future."

I love Julie Cantrell's work. In Cantrell's novel, two estranged sisters reunite near Oxford, Mississippi to celebrate their parents' fiftieth wedding anniversary. And then their mom drops a bombshell that forces them to reevaluate what they're doing with their lives. It's a Southern family saga about a complicated family. I get a lot of requests for inspirational, feel-good fiction with little to no sex and swearing. If that's what you're after, I highly recommend Julie Cantrell.
