"I found myself captivated, unable to put the book down because I needed to know more." - WiLoveBooks
"This book tells a very unique story and is very beautifully written." - Confessions of a Southern Mama
Jailbird is a warm story for survival. A story for hope, for family and friends. For people who stand by your side no matter what. Remember that saying: "When the student is ready, the teacher will appear"? Your friends and family are always there for you when you need them most. Neena was all alone in that wood. She found friends and a family when she needed them most. She fought her past, for her children, all three of them, for her family, for her right for happiness.
I've found Neena's story very touching and inspirational. I will recommend this story for everyone. It's a heart-warming story for all ages. Marina - Amazon

It's kind of a cute story. It opens as a woman, our narrator and protagonist, is breathlessly running from the jail where she's been for the past 10 years to the fence. Making her exciting escape, all action in the book is gone until the last two or three chapters.
Instead, we have a story about a woman trying to re-establish her life, and as the story goes on, we find out a little more about the "murder" of which she is convicted, and we watch as she breaks out of her prison-hardened shell of mistrust and learns to trust again, which is essential to rebuilding her life.
If you're looking for a riveting, life-changing story, this isn't it. If you're looking for a lazy, light read, this would fit the bill. There's certainly better literature out there, but this is non-taxing and breezy.
This book was simply extremely well written and paced. The plot moves along, the characters are likable, and all in all this was a great way to spend 3 hours. Highly recommend.
Can't wait to read more of Huffman's novels because she sure knows how to write a darn good romance with the right amount of intrigue, emotion and love.
