About the Author
Jennifer Slattery writes soul-stirring fiction for New Hope Publishers, Christian living articles for Crosswalk.com, and devotions for Internet Café Devotions, the group blog, Faith-filled Friends, and her personal blog. She also does content editing for Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas’ Firefly imprint, and loves working with authors who are serious about pursuing their calling. When not writing, reading, or editing, Jennifer loves going on mall dates with her adult daughter and coffee dates with her hilariously fun husband.
In Breaking Free, author Jennifer Slattery has written a captivating and heart-wrenching story of a beloved family. Alice Goddard is a local women’s ministry leader and housewife with two teen boys and her husband, Trent, is a graphic designer for a local company. To their friends and all may think that this is the picture perfect family. But all is not as it seems. Trent has become a drunk and a gambler and the Goddard finances are spiraling out of control and their family is falling apart, causing problems for her struggling and possibly wayward teens. Alice believes that leaving her husband is the best solution. But is it? Will the love of God help save their marriage or will everything end with a train wreck? From page one I was emotionally involved and attached to Jennifer Slattery’s characters, Alice Goddard, her husband, and two sons. This story teaches that things are not always as they seem. A picture perfect family may not be exactly what you think it is. Jennifer has written not only a heart-breaking and emotionally challenging story, but one that includes the love and redemption of God. I would recommend this story to readers that enjoy inspirational-contemporary fiction.
