About A Life, Freed:
The riveting conclusion to Rowan’s powerful story explores the power of friendship, love, and the belief in oneself.
Rowan Slone is settling into her first semester at college. On her own for the first time, she’s enjoying her work at the animal shelter, and she’s finally feeling in control of her life.
But the past is back. When her old boyfriend texts out of nowhere, Rowan starts to feel that familiar fear that her life is about to be turned upside down—and not in a good way. Her mother’s new psychiatrist wants Rowan involved in her therapy even though Rowan wants nothing to do with her.
When tensions begin to arise between her and best friend, Jess, who is struggling being a new mother, Rowan becomes confused and angry at her friend who is leaving her to pick up the childcare slack.
It’s time for Rowan to finally deal with her past. Will soul-searching help her achieve that elusive sense of peace and family she’s always craved or will the pain of the past prove too great?
