Escaping Toward Freedom:
Thriller Journey Out of Trauma Back to Love and Safety
THRILLER AND MYSTERY BOOKS: HEART OF THIS STORY HAS MADE HEADLINE NEWS
Escaping Toward Freedom is the fictional story of four kidnapped girls who escape a kidnapping and human trafficking ring. Clarissa Maxwell, a key character in this thriller, is a former Navy specialist with friends in military special forces. Clarissa is vacationing in the Georgia countryside, deep in the woods, when she spots a girl hiding at the edge of her cabin. Sight of the girl trembling changes everything, strips Clarissa of the reason she’d traveled to the cabin. At once, Clarissa and the girl enter a world of danger, chase and mystery and suspense.
They are intent on escaping. But, will they? Stakes in this thriller are high. There’s no time for a single mistake. It’s impossible for them to turn back. They are not alone. They are being stalked, hunted. On top of that, more girls show up. Does Clarissa have what it takes to save the girls or will she get trapped?
