Freedom’s Child is a propulsive, raucous thriller about a woman with a troubled past who breaks free of the witness-protection program in order to save her kidnapped daughter.

For eighteen years, Freedom Oliver has lived in a small town in Oregon, working at a bar and drinking away her troubled past. Twenty years ago, Freedom was arrested for killing her husband and spent two years in jail—where she put her newborn daughter up for adoption—before being exonerated. She has witness protection now, to stay hidden from her dead husband’s psychotic family. With nothing to do but anonymously watch on Facebook as her kid grows up, she feels trapped, bored, and heartbroken.

And then one day she reads that her daughter is missing, possibly kidnapped. Freedom slips her handlers, gets on her motorcycle, and heads for Kentucky, where her daughter was raised. No longer protected by US marshals, she is targeted and tracked by her husband’s vengeful family, who are eager to make Freedom pay for his death.

With nothing left to lose, Freedom risks everything to make amends for a past that haunts her still.
