Arms of Freedom by Kathleen Neely

  Arms of Freedom With each page of the age-old journals, Annie discovers all that unites her with a woman who once lived in her farmhouse. One lived with wealth and one with poverty, but both knew captivity. Both longed to be free.  Miriam yearns to escape her life as a super model. She drops the pseudonym and uses the name she gave up years ago—Annie Gentry. Then she alters her appearance and moves to rural South Carolina to care for her grandmother. Can she live a simple life without recognition? Can she hide a net worth valued in the millions? Love is nowhere in her plans until she meets a man who wants nothing more than Annie Gentry and the simple life he lives. Charlotte lived in the same farmhouse in the tumultuous 1860’s. The Civil War was over, but for a bi-racial girl, freedom remained elusive. She coveted a life where she wouldn’t bring shame to her family. A life where she could make a difference. As she experiences hope, will it be wrested from her? The journals st

  October 1: Meet the Author Author Interview What was the most surprising thing you learned about yourself as you wrote this book? No Longer a Captive was never a story I intended to write. It deals with overcoming childhood abuse. I heard a woman speak about growing up in a home with an abusive father who is a hero to the town where they lived but a monster to his family. I felt drawn to write about this, but didn’t think I could. I had no personal experience with abuse. I grew up in a loving home. As I was sitting in church one Sunday, our pastor said the following, “Unforgiveness is a prison.” I knew then that, whether or not I felt able, I was being nudged to write a book about overcoming abuse. I might not have experienced abuse, but I knew all about forgiving and failing to forgive. The one thing I learned is that even though I felt unqualified, all God was asking of me was obedience, and He’d do the rest.   What was the best money you ever spent for your writing care

Meet the author - Kristen Joy Wilks

  What was the most surprising thing you learned about yourself as you wrote this book? My main character is a helper and she is always "helping" people far more than they really want. She has a habit of purchasing new pets for folks that are impractical to their living circumstances, such as circus donkey's or bald rats. Through the course of the story, she learns that her help really does come from the Lord. While I would never purchase a bald rat for an unwilling pet owner, I discovered that I show others that I care by cooking for them. Strangely, some folks don't care about food and so I realized that just like Shelby and her bald rats, there are times I need to find new ways to show my love. Were you an avid reader as a child? What did you read? I loved to read as a girl and devoured Black Stallion books and Nancy Drew mysteries at light speed! How does your faith affect your writing? My faith helps me to create a believable inner story arc for my characters as
