Will she find the path to true freedom for them all?

Amanda’s Review:

I really loved this fourth and last instalment of Carol Preston’s Turning the Tide series. The questions left unanswered in Tangled Secrets were resolved, leaving me with a satisfied feeling at the conclusion. And I must admit I had a tear in my eye as well.

Carol has a real talent at taking the facts surrounding her ancestry and creating characterisation for those people, making their stories come to life. In Truly Free I really sensed Carol’s background in counselling coming through the storyline, as she examined motives and the reason people act the way they do.

I was especially caught into the novel by the murder mystery that was part of the story in this book. I wanted to know what the characters would discover about the suspicious circumstances that surrounded Bill’s supposed suicide.

All in all a very satisfactory read, and recommended to those who enjoy historical novels.
