About the Book

Book: Road to Freedom

Author: Cheri Swalwell

Genre: Christian Woman’s Contemporary Fiction

Release date: October 5, 2021

Book 4_ebook_FINAL 2.23.21Sometimes silence speaks louder than words.

Wynn and her best friend Addie have been inseparable since kindergarten. Growing up together in the same community, they shared activities, friends, and even the same job. But behind closed doors, their lives couldn’t be more different.

Zane has loved Wynn for four years. Yet Wynn is adamant she doesn’t need a boyfriend. After all, she will never get married. Ever. In an effort to uncover the why behind her ‘no,’ Zane discovers more than he expected.

When Wynn unlatches the door and allows Holly in as a mentor, will she learn trust is just like riding a bike and find the healing she so desperately needs?

Road to Freedom, Book 4 in The Redemption of Green Pines series continues to disclose the messiness of real life. Join Wynn and her friends as they discover how an encounter with God can bring freedom from fear, healing from pain, and the joy of belonging when we choose to let others into our lives, even, or especially, the messy parts.

I really recommend reading the other three books in this series before reading this book. Just because, each book expands where the other leaves off.  This story deals with a subject that is hard for some to deal with but a real topic that many deals with, Porn. This book is a clean read and is "Real Life". This is a story that shows how porn affects the whole family and not just the person viewing it.  This book has the Gospel message as part of the story without being preachy.  It also shows how forgiveness helps the one giving it more than the person receiving it. 

This is a story about how a some in the church can abuse their position and how they can be the complete opposite of what a real Christian is supposed to be. 

I really wanted to climb into the book and give Holly a hug for her mentoring Wynn and I wanted to give Zach a hug for his never giving up on Wynn and yes, I wanted to slap Wynn's father for his abuse to both of his daughter's.

I was given a complimentary copy by the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from Cheri

The Redemption of Green Pines is a series about community. We first meet Wynn and her friends in Journey Back Home when they attended youth group. While Pastor Jace and Holly remain a constant presence throughout all six books, Road to Freedom takes us deeper into the lives of four friends – Wynn, Addie, Zane and Owen, who graduated from youth group and began working for Holly’s catering business. They also babysit the Cooper kids from time to time and have become part of the family.

Since the beginning when we were introduced to Wynn, she carried around a secret she wouldn’t share with anyone, not even her best friend. Road to Freedom is Wynn’s journey of truly discovering who she is as a Daughter of the King, and learning how good it feels to live in freedom instead of burdened by other’s choices.

I hope you enjoy getting to know Wynn and her friends as much as I have!
