Freedom’s Price was an intriguing tale. The characters were interesting and carried flaws that sometimes influenced their decisions as they worked their way through the story. I really felt bad for both Catherine and Tom regarding things that had gone wrong for them in their lives due to the actions of others. This story was very much about seeing if there was a way for them to right the wrongs of the past.
The setting of the second half of the story, in Louisiana, contained a darkness swirling about it that really gave an eerie feeling and left me wondering how Tom and Catherine were going to push through. Would they be able to triumph? At what cost? Was it even possible to untangle the mystery surrounding Catherine’s family plantation? There were quite a few twists and turns to keep this story moving.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
