Shattered Dreams (A Freedom Trilogy Book 1) by Brenda Kennedy New Release Giveaway and Review

Shattered Dreams
(A Freedom Trilogy Book 1)

by Brenda Kennedy

New Release and Review
GENRE : Soft Romance
RELEASE DATE : December 15, 2014

Emma Greyson, Age 22, Has a loving husband, Max, and a newborn son, James. She is finally living her dream, until fate steps in and shatters everything.

Trying to deal with the death of her husband and learning how to be a single mom, Emma decides to move from Fort Drum, New York, back to her hometown of Sarasota, Florida.

Four years later, Emma has a fresh start with a new job and new friends. She meets an attractive doctor, Alec Collins. Taking things slowly, she is happy with the way things are going until fate steps in again and reveals the ugly truth of Alec's past.

 This is a true romance story full of emotion.  The focus of the story is on the impact the war has on a young couple with a newborn baby.

Max is deployed early back to Afghanistan just three weeks after Emma has given birth to their son James.  It is heart wrenching to read their goodbye.  This is such a young couple full of dreams for their future, a supportive family, and a strong love for each other.

Max is killed and the impact this has on his young family will bring you to tears.  Our story brings to the forefront the remarkable military wives that bond and support each other.  Any one of them could be in Emma's shoes.  They feel for each other and come to the rescue of any of the families in need of a little tender care after losing someone to the war.

As Emma attempts to continue living and caring for her child, we discover some very emotional things about Max and how caring he was.  Even after his death he is caring for Emma and James and it is sometimes heartbreaking.

The only way I know to describe this story is to compare it to a gentle breeze that touches and refreshes.  It is like the oxygen you breathe, it is all around you caring for you and there when you need it.

As Emma embarks on perhaps a new chapter of her romantic life, her world is thrown into chaos.  I cannot wait for the next installment of this story.  I keep hoping she will find happiness and a partner for life that can care for her.


First and foremost I am a wife, mother and grandmother.

I am also a nurse and a new author.  

I moved to sunny Florida in 2006 and never looked back. I love fresh squeezed lemonade, crushed ice, teacups, wineglasses, non-franchise restaurants, ice cream cones, boating, picnics, cookouts, throwing parties, lace, white wine, mojitos, strawberry margaritas, white linen tablecloths, fresh flowers and Pinterest. I also love to read and write and to spend time with my family. My books thus far, have been inspired by the things I love and the people who influence me, every single day to be a better person.
