Currently free @ B&N
and Amazon UK
, will likely drop in the main store
and may show up at Christian Book as well.
Incidentally, if you're looking for extra Christian fiction freebies, Abingdon Press has a bunch of repeats scheduled. They've all been offered multiple times fairly recently, but in case you missed them or are a new member, I advise looking at Christian Book's Sample Free eBooks
page to see the titles tomorrow morning and getting them either there or in your preferred store (Abingdon's usually show up at B&N, Amazon, and ChristianBook).
Just a girl. The only one strong enough to break the cycle.
In Depression-era Mississippi, Millie Reynolds longs to escape the madness that marks her world. With an abusive father and a "nothing mama," she struggles to find a place where she really belongs.
For answers, Millie turns to the Gypsies who caravan through town each spring. The travelers lead Millie to a key that unlocks generations of shocking family secrets. When tragedy strikes, the mysterious contents of the box give Millie the tools she needs to break her family's longstanding cycle of madness and abuse.
Through it all, Millie experiences the thrill of first love while fighting to trust the God she believes has abandoned her. With the power of forgiveness, can Millie finally make her way into the free?
Saturated in Southern ambiance and written in the vein of other Southern literary bestsellers like The Help by Kathryn Stockett and Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin, Julie Cantrell has created a story that will sweep you away long after the novel ends.
