Freedom Series, Book 3
Back of the book:
Will she make the right choice? Will she find her ultimate freedom? And what about Jonathan—what will become of their relationship?
Mara, a young woman who has spent the majority of her life as a sex slave is now faced with her ultimate challenge. Who can she trust? Does she risk her freedom to return to Mexico and find her family? As she struggles against the One who can give her ultimate freedom, she must also decide if she can trust her ultimate freedom, she must also decide if she can trust her feelings for Jonathan, a Bible college student. Her choice to forgive is the only thing that can enable her to stop living under the shadow of her name’s meaning (“bitter”) and move into a life filled with true joy. Will she make the right choice? Will she be able to let go of her past life and all the fears and scars that go with it?
About the author:
Bestselling and multi-award-winning author of 35 books, plus popular speaker and Bible teacher, I am also a wife, mother, and grandmother!
One of my favorite things about Kathi Macias’ stories is that she consistently makes sure that the hope of Christ shines through. She takes situations that we see as impossible with our earthly eyes and allows us to watch the characters struggle while finding their way to the Truth.
This series takes on the difficult topic of sex trafficking, especially involving children. It isn’t a pretty story in fact at times it is downright ugly. But sin itself is ugly. What this story contains is hope and redemption. Does everyone live happily ever after? Unfortunately not. Is every sex slave rescued? Unfortunately not. But some are…and that is where the hope lies. It starts with getting one out and then spreads to two and goes from there.
The first book in the series is called Deliver Me from Evil. The second book is Special Delivery. This is the third and final installment in this series. The storyline of Mara and Jonathan carry through each book with additional characters interwoven in the separate books. I would highly recommend reading this series in order if you haven’t started it yet.
You won’t be able to walk away from this series without your heart being broken for those that are held in such despicable bondage. There are listings in the back of the book of agencies that are in the business of making a difference in the lives of these that have been exploited. I urge you to get involved. Join Kathi in shouting Abolition! This must end!
