Review: Freedom's Ring by:Heidi Chiavaroli

 Freedom's Ring
About the Book:
Boston, 2015
Two years after nearly losing her life in the Boston Marathon bombing, Annie David is still far from “Boston strong.” Instead she remains isolated and defeated―plagued by guilt over her niece, crippled in the blast, and by an antique ring alongside a hazy hero’s face. But when she learns the identity of her rescuer, will he be the hero she’s imagined? And can the long-past history of the woman behind the ring set her free from the guilt and fears of the present?

Boston, 1770
As a woman alone in a rebellious town, Liberty Caldwell finds herself in a dangerous predicament. When a British lieutenant, Alexander Smythe, comes to her rescue and offers her employment, Liberty accepts. As months go by, Alexander not only begins to share his love of poetry with her, but protects Liberty from the advances of a lecherous captain living in the officers’ house where she works.

Mounting tensions explode in the Boston Massacre, and Liberty’s world is shattered as her brother, with whom she has just reunited, is killed in the fray. Desperate and alone, she returns home, only to be assaulted by the captain. Afraid and furious toward redcoats, Liberty leaves the officers’ home, taking with her a ring that belonged to Alexander.

Two women, separated by centuries, must learn to face their fears. And when they feel they must be strong, they learn that sometimes true strength is found in surrender.


My Review:
 Talk about going to history class. If you are a fan of history you will absolutely adore this story and its a twofer so its equally as good.  In Freedom's Ring we are following the lives of Annie from 2015 and Liberty from 1770. These two ladies even though they are centuries apart have to rely on God's strength and will to move on with their lives. They both have time on their side but not without an enormous amount of struggle to face.

 I liked the book because I like those type of stories that flip back and forth. These poor ladies have definitely went through some struggles. I like watching them allowing God to help them through these struggles and allowing Him to show them how to overcome them.

 We go through things on a daily basis and we also have to allow God to take control but watching it happen in someone else's life is nothing short of amazing. Great read!
