About the book:

Bestselling author Lauraine Snelling crafts a poignant story of hope and restoration for a newly paroled mother rebuilding her life after the loss of her son.

Maggie Roberts is starting over again after her reckless driving led to a 10-year prison sentence and the devastating loss of her son. Having learned to repurpose retired thoroughbred racehorses through an inmate training program, Maggie finds a way to rebuild her life. But it's not until she meets single father Gil Winters and his wheelchair-bound son, Edward, that she finds her calling. In helping Edward with his therapy using horses, Maggie finds herself coming to life again. But when a shadow from the past returns, Maggie is forced to choose between her newfound freedom and getting Edward the life-saving help he needs.

My thoughts:

Breaking Free was a great book with a really good story! I liked all of the facts about training horses and how second chances were a major theme in the book. The characters were nice and I enjoyed the little bit of romance that was in Breaking Free.

Overall, a great book! I recommend it if you enjoy contemporary reads with animals being a big part of the story. :)

I borrowed this book from the library. I was not required to write a review, but chose to. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.*
