Note:  I received a complimentary copy for an honest review of this book from
In this sequel to Into the Free, the main character’s story continues filled with so much action, romance and faith.  Most of the action/story takes place in Colorado.  When Millie is accosted, she keeps the life-changing event a secret, letting her fears determine her path.  For months she is helping her husband begin building the ranch they started in Colorado until months later she is told she is pregnant.
Bump, which is Millie’s husband’s nickname, is a veterinarian who loves Millie with all his heart.  When he finds out she is pregnant, he is thrilled at first.  Then, days later, he is thinking otherwise.  When the baby is born healthy, Millie still believes her secret past can be kept from becoming known. 
Millie’s character faces many choices as she is growing up, some of which children at the tender age of 16 shouldn’t have to face.  When Millie loses both her parents, then other experiences happen, she finds a job as rodeo trick rider.  Shortly thereafter, she chooses to marry Bump and start a new life, hoping the past will be left behind in the dust.  As Millie learns years later, secrets can hurt more than telling the truth. 
Millie’s parentage also causes her to find out who she is and not be defined by society.  Though her past is lettered with abuse, abandonment and more, Millie wants more for her child.  This forces her to make different choices than what was shown to her growing up.  It takes a lot of courage to tell the truth, knowing it will hurt people, but Millie also learns that some people figured out the truth long ago and were waiting for her to be ready to share. 
The main theme throughout all the scenarios is that we all have the freedom to choose to forgive or harbor in our hearts unforgiveness.  One choice brings freedom, the other bondage.  The tale told here is a gripping one with an exciting and touching ending.  This is a must read!
My rating is 5 stars!
