I received an advanced reader copy. I settled in to do what I promised...read and review. By the first few pages I completely forgot where I was. Each page had so much tension...it just pulled me forward. Rarely do I even finish most fiction books, much less roar through them. I cannot believe this is Julie's first novel. She writes likes a seasoned pro. I am sure this will be the first of many more books by Julie. Her name is sure to become popular on reader's tongues.

"Into the Free" is a compelling novel that covers so many issues people are struggling with today. Set in Mississippi, author Julie Cantrell draws you into the troubled life of young Millie. Filled with abuse, depression, drug addiction, fear, hope, and so much more, you will not want to put this wonderful book down and you will find yourself impatiently waiting for a sequel to see what happens in Millie's world. I look forward to reading more of Julie Cantrell's amazing books! A truly talented author.

This is a heart-wrenching one about a young girl, Millie Reynolds, whose bleak world is shrouded in hatefulness, cruelty, and great pain and tries to overcome the insurmountable odds of being surrounded by a totally disreputable family. Her father is an alcoholic and is abusive; her mother is a worthless, unfeeling drug addict and what usually comes with this scenario is poverty. Her search for a better life tests her strength and faith in the depression era in Mississippi in 1936. This is worth the read but will test your endurance.

Milie overcomes horrific happenings im her life and comes out as a strong young woman in spite of them all. Throughout all the trials she learns how to feel God's love for her. Was disappointed when the book ended, would have liked to keep on reading about Millie

Once I got into this book I couldn't put it down, except to recharge my nook. Millie's story will make laugh, cry, a range of emotions. One of the best books I have read on a long time.

This brilliant novel holds you captive from its first words. The characters are beautiful and inspiring.

The book has a worldly view of Christianity. In it, God disguises himself as a character's ghost. He watches from the sidelines as all sorts of terrible things happen to the main character. (***SPOILER ALERT The seventeen-year-old is raped in the church sanctuary by a "Christian" man.) I was also bothered by the mix of Christianity with other religions, meaning some of the characters seemed to believe in Jesus, but also seemed to practice other religions. It also portrayed that all Christians are hypocrites or weak in character unless they are poor. I knew this book would be depressing because of the subject matter, but I believed it was a Christian book since I was buying it in a Christian bookstore. It also had good reviews with a guaranteed good read sticker on it. I thought I could trust the Christian publisher, but I was wrong. Don't waste your money or your time on this book, it isn't worth it!

Into the free is a great book about a girl named Millie who had been through a lot and learns to overcome her past at age sixteen. This great writing style makes this book impossible to put down. I totally recommend with a rating of five stars! I suggest you guys get this book while it's still free.

Loved, loved, loved this book! It was so hard to put it down. The author makes you fall in love with Millie, and keeps the reader surprised through out the book. It has been some time since a book has made me cry! This one tugged on many heart strings.

...And sucks you into a world you can only imagine. Through the devastation, this poignant story comes through the eyes of a little girl who grows into a woman. The story takes you through her childhood, through prejudices, violence, poverty, abuse, and love. The most important aspect was how through it all she manages to find God. Hands down the BEST book I have read in a VERY long time.

Let me start by saying....this is not my genre. I am not a Christian fiction fan. I find them overly dramatic and preachy. However, I met this author in the food truck line at Southern Festival of books in Nashville this year. I was very impressed. She informed me she would be at Square Books in Oxford, MS in January. I decided to give her a try before her appearance. Millie is a young girl from an abusive home during the depression era in Mississippi. She struggles to find the right path. When her parents die within several days of each other, this sends her life spiraling out of control. She has to come to terms and be strong to overcome. This is a tale about the true struggles in life and the strength needed to get through them. I absolutely loved Millie. She fights with strength she doesn't ever realize she has. All her trials and experiences help her grow and become the woman she wants to be. I enjoyed this story for the many aspects it portrayed about strength and endurance needed to succeed in life. I loved the setting and especially the part about the gypsies. This author is not afraid to show the hypocrisy in some Christians or the evil in people. This is one of the reasons I enjoyed this novel. Her characters were real and experienced real-life emotions with many different ups and downs. Very impressive. I am looking forward to her new novel.

This book is full of mystery, tender moments, and brutality. Not what you might expect and keeps you guessing who's going to get the tragic central figure. I think you will love it as I did. Barnes & Nobles Reader, LWR

A hauntingly sad but beautiful story, filled with lots of sorrow yet inspiring the reader to recognize God's grace and mercy in the face of hopelessness- An encouraging masterpiece of literature!

The only thing that got me to the end of this book was hope that it would have a satisfying end. It didn't. From the beginning it was hardship- a husband who beats his wife regularly- and nearly to death, dysfunctional family, drug addiction, poor living, death, more death, rape, and only the smallest of happy endings. It wasn't an escape read, it was so full of the darkness of life that it left me depressed at the end. I wouldn't recommend it.
