The Free shouldn’t make you feel as good as it does. But when I closed the cover on the last page, I was strangely uplifted. Despite the topic; drug addiction, death, suicide, loss – this book made me laugh, not cry. And it was a deeply engaging novel. More a story of those who are ground up but step away from the mill to find the glowing joy of success in the small things. This is a must read for people from veterans to nurses, to lovers of amazing novels. If you want to meet the author, be here at Cloud and Leaf Saturday April 12 by 7:00. He’ll be here to discuss the novel, answer questions, or chat about anything you fancy.
