OVERVIEW

With a unique setting (Boston 2015 and Boston 1770) Freedom’s Ring is bound to keep the attention of the reader. Freedom’s Ring is centered on two women: Annie, a Bostonian marathon runner haunted by the events of the Boston Marathon Bombing, and Liberty, a young patriot struggling with loss and regret. Each chapter ends with a cliffhanger, making it almost impossible to put the book down. Freedom’s Ring uses authentic history woven into a fictitious story set in both modern day and during the Revolution. Though separated by time, Annie and Liberty share a unique connection through a valuable heirloom: a ring. The two women also share a desire to let go of pain, regret, and shame and to know their Maker and Savior. The storytelling is fast-paced, the characters are three-dimensional, and the settings of both time periods are visually enhancing.

ASSESSMENT

Rating (1 to 5)

Suggested Audience

Young Adult/Adult

Christian Impact

Freedom’s Ring is historical Christian fiction with a strong message of redemption, forgiveness, and prayer. Though not blunt with its Christian message, Freedom’s Ring directly shares the gospel message by making it a natural part of a relatable story. Both protagonists, Liberty and Annie, move from having little desire to discover a relationship with God to realizing their desperate need for Him. However, this heart-change happens beautifully and progressively throughout the book.
