For the first time, Brekka considers an experimental surgery that could restore the use of her legs. She doesn't want to be left behind, not again, not by the one person she really loves.
But is it worth the risk for a chance to walk again? Can Brekka accept her past and embrace her future? Or will her fear cost her everything that matters?
Finding Liberty was a Quarter Finalist in the BookLife Prize.
And Publisher's Weekly said, that:
[Finding Liberty] has a serious emotional core. The story of two individuals recovering from injury and trauma, and redirecting their lives, is memorable. Baker's prose is warm, engaging, and fresh, and the voices of her protagonists are both distinctive and immediately captivating.
Baker brings a unique and welcome level of depth to her primary characters. As such, their romance carries greater meaning and momentum. The leads are immensely sympathetic, and their chemistry is undeniable.

healing story of support, validation, empowering love story! I laughed, shade a tear n loved this beautiful book. Thank you!
Love Brekka and Rob
The title indicated this book is about finding freedom and it is. But I look at it as rewriting dreams. Dreams can be broken. Just like people. But those dreams can be put back together to be even better dreams then they were before. Life is hard for all of us and often things don’t turn out as we hoped but there are also many good things too. Brekka, like her name is “broken” or at least she thinks she is. She is a paraplegic after a car accident. She gives up on her dreams of the Olympics, of marriage, and of having kids. But then Rob comes along. Rob also had a broken back but was healed after a short time as a quadriplegic. He sees past Brekka’s injury and sees her. He is kind and loving to all that know him. He is what can be described as the perfect man. Perhaps too perfect. Brekka has to decide if she can trust that Rob isn’t just looking at her as a project. This is a sweet, clean romance.
Trials and Triumphs
There are times life doles out difficult challenges. Some may be temporary and some may be permanent. Brekka had a chance at achieving lofty goals in the sports world. Life dealt a cruel blow to her aspirations.
This book was inspiring and also thought-provoking. I loved the fact that Rob was unphased by Brekka’s physical challenges. There are lessons for us all in this book but they are presented in an engaging, fascinating tale of loss and love and triumph.
