About the Book


Book: Road to Freedom

Author: Cheri Swalwell

Genre: Christian Woman’s Contemporary Fiction

Release date: October 5, 2021

Sometimes silence speaks louder than words.

Wynn and her best friend Addie have been inseparable since kindergarten. Growing up together in the same community, they shared activities, friends, and even the same job. But behind closed doors, their lives couldn’t be more different.

Zane has loved Wynn for four years. Yet Wynn is adamant she doesn’t need a boyfriend. After all, she will never get married. Ever. In an effort to uncover the why behind her ‘no,’ Zane discovers more than he expected.

When Wynn unlatches the door and allows Holly in as a mentor, will she learn trust is just like riding a bike and find the healing she so desperately needs?

Road to Freedom, Book 4 in The Redemption of Green Pines series continues to disclose the messiness of real life. Join Wynn and her friends as they discover how an encounter with God can bring freedom from fear, healing from pain, and the joy of belonging when we choose to let others into our lives, even, or especially, the messy parts.

More from Cheri

The Redemption of Green Pines is a series about community. We first meet Wynn and her friends in Journey Back Home when they attended youth group. While Pastor Jace and Holly remain a constant presence throughout all six books, Road to Freedom takes us deeper into the lives of four friends – Wynn, Addie, Zane and Owen, who graduated from youth group and began working for Holly’s catering business. They also babysit the Cooper kids from time to time and have become part of the family.

Since the beginning when we were introduced to Wynn, she carried around a secret she wouldn’t share with anyone, not even her best friend. Road to Freedom is Wynn’s journey of truly discovering who she is as a Daughter of the King, and learning how good it feels to live in freedom instead of burdened by other’s choices.

I hope you enjoy getting to know Wynn and her friends as much as I have!

My Thoughts

Road to Freedom is Book 4 in The Redemption of Green Pines series. While there are definitely some mentions of events from previous books brought up, this could certainly be read as a standalone as well. 

While there is certainly some romance in this story, I feel like more than anything, this is truly a story of faith. It paints a beautiful story of what it truly means to have a real relationship with God--- and what it doesn't. Sadly, there are many who see Christianity as a system of rules as we see with Wynn at the start of the story, and it was great to see her come to terms with what she has been taught in her youth and come through that to have a true and meaningful relationship throughout the story. I think there are many that can benefit from this story--- either because they've experienced it themselves or to help to better understand those that have. This story deals with some messy and unpleasant topics, but it does so with grace and I really enjoyed seeing it played out. I really hope to see more from Wynn's siblings in the future too! Overall, an enjoyable read and one that fans of Christian fiction are sure to want to check out.
