9780007595914: Freedom's Child

Freedom Oliver has plenty of secrets.  She lives in a small Oregon town and keeps mostly to herself.  Her few friends and neighbors know she works at the local biker bar; they know she gets arrested for public drunkenness almost every night; they know she’s brash, funny, and fearless. 

What they don’t know is that Freedom Oliver is a fake name.  They don’t know that she was arrested for killing her husband, a cop, twenty years ago.  They don’t know she put her two kids up for adoption.  They don’t know that she’s now in witness protection, regretting ever making a deal with the Feds, and missing her children with a heartache so strong it makes her ill.

Then, she learns that her daughter has gone missing, possibly kidnapped.  Determined to find out what happened, Freedom slips free of her handlers, gets on a motorcycle, and heads for Kentucky, where her daughter was raised.  As she ventures out on her own, no longer protected by the government, her troubled past comes roaring back at her: her husband’s vengeful, sadistic family; her brief, terrifying stint in prison; and the family she chose to adopt her kids who are keeping dangerous secrets.

Written with a ferocious wit and a breakneck pace, Freedom’s Child is a thrilling, emotional portrait of a woman who risks everything to make amends for a past that haunts her still.

Review:

'A terrific read from a powerful new voice ' Karin Slaughter

‘Original, compelling and seriously recommended.’ Lee Child

‘A relentless and fiercely compelling debut. FREEDOM’S CHILD will hold you captive until the very last page.’ Richard Montanari

‘Freedom’s Child is a remarkable novel that is as emotionally gripping as it is pulse-pounding. Equally heartbreaking and hard-boiled, Jax Miller has delivered a sensational debut novel’ Ivy Pochoda, author of Visitation Street

‘Freedom’s Child is a page-turning tale of redemption that explores the complicated, intertwined bonds of motherhood and justice’ Elizabeth L. Silver, author of The Execution of Noa P. Singleton

About the Author:

Jax Miller was born in New York in 1985. She started writing Freedom’s Child while travelling around America on the back of a motorcycle and finished it in the peace and quiet of the Irish countryside. Within 24 hours of writing ‘The End’ she had been signed up by a literary agent, and a few days later she had a publishing deal. Freedom's Child is Jax’s debut novel and will be published in over a dozen languages. She lives in Ireland with her husband.
