It's been a year since Liberty has seen the man she loves, Max being deployed in Afghanistan. She's worried that he may never come back, as his scheduled return date comes and goes without a trace of him. Without him she feels incomplete, and until he returns her world will not be copasetic.
On the other side of the world is Max, fighting in Afghanistan, dreaming of the day he can return to his beloved Liberty. He write her letters all the time, but is unsure whether she receives them or not as she cannot write him back. He misses her dearly, and after a tragedy and an unforeseen prolonging of his deployment, his desire to see her grows exponentially. It isn't until her birthday that he is able to return, and when he does he gets a surprise that changes his world forever.
Rene Folsom once again brings another fantastic story of passion and love. Proving that even distance can't destroy the bond of love, For Liberty is a terrific short read that I seriously recommend you pick up!
Where's the story? I one-clicked this and thought I was about to get some drama, but nothing. This book was made up of time passages, letters, and one sweet but incomplete love scene in which the POV switches as soon as something it is about to get steamy. I don't know about the Red Hot, but there was a lot of BOOM in this book. Boom, it's two months later, Boom it's six months later, Boom it's the end.
Chapter One--she is pregnant, alone, and reading his letters while he's away at war. Chapter Two--we see him writing a letter, he shares three paragraphs worth of dialog with his combat buddy. Chapter Three--it's suddenly Valentine's day, she gets three new letters. I turned a few more pages and I'm reading that the baby is months old and there has been no word from him since Valentine's Day and his return date has passed. Another page or two and suddenly the baby is five months old. Ten more pages and it's the end.
All I know about the MC, Liberty (Libby), is that she worked in a stable but had to stop. We don't know why, we're just told that she had to stop. I assume it was because she gave birth, but I don't know. She then moved in with her mother. Suddenly she is able to have her own home again. The fact that she loves dogs and volunteers at an animal shelter was mentioned briefly. And she's two years younger than the hero.
We find out the hero knew Libby in high school, but she was two years younger so he thought of her as a kid. He graduated high school and went into the military. After six years in, he meets Libby again. I guess they developed a relationship and then he was deployed on a classified year-long mission. He writes sappy, prose filled love letters (which would be great, but no man I have ever met is actually like that).
Again I ask, where's the story? I get that this is a novella, but that does not mean it should lack a developed plot. Of the 110 pages this book had, 22 of them were advertisements for other books.
