I just finished reading Shattered Dreams. It is the first book in The Freedom Trilogy written by Brenda Kennedy. Emma is living her dream life. She is married to the man she loves with all her heart and soul, and they just gave birth to their first child. Then, he’s deployed early and killed overseas. She is devastated over his loss, but she must learn to pick up the pieces for her son. Can she move on and find love again or will her heart be forever shattered?
I loved this book. I must say that at the beginning I had to push myself to continue reading. That isn’t because of bad reasons though. It was a great start. The story was so beautiful. That’s why I didn’t want to continue reading. I knew from the title and description that bad things were headed. I didn’t want to reach that part. I’m glad I did and kept reading. This is a very detailed and very beautiful story. I fell in love with all of the characters, especially Emma and James.
There wasn’t anything I disliked about this book. It was well written. I almost didn’t want to put it down. Oh how life interferes with our reading time sometimes. I do fully recommend that if a person reads this book they have tissues on hand though. Sometimes it can bring a person to tears.
I fully recommend this book. It is a beautifully written emotional story. The characters are easy to connect with. The story is easy to follow. It’s not the typical cheesy story that we usually see. It has its own unique twist. I am so honored that I was able to read this book. I will be reading the rest of this trilogy. I also plan to read her other books as well. This author has talent.
