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?
Emotional, Gut Busting, Tear Spilling Read!
I absolutely loved both book 1 and 2 and if you like emotional, gut busting, tear spilling reads then these books and this author is a MUST read in my opinion…
Ms. Meyer has created a story with emotion rolling off the page…
Ms. Meyer has created a story with emotion rolling off the page, speaking of survival after dark times. Rowan grows a great deal, and the way she confronts each relationship in the book is really believable.
I think that these books can give a very real look at life to teenagers…
We see throughout the novel that Rowan struggles with cutting in order to deal with life and her emotions, and we know that there are teens out there (probably far more than we want to believe) that turn to self-harm when they do not know how to handle life and their issues.
