Check out what others are saying about Freedom of the Soul:
An honest and gripping multilayered story about family and dreams, Freedom of the Soul touched my heart and stirred my soul. Bateman’s deft hand at creating historical settings drew me in and I felt as if I were there, with Celeste and Mac, with Shea and Jonas, experiencing their hurts, fears, and joys. A book that explores the secrets we hide within, and how they affect our choices, Freedom of the Soul is a must read by one of today’s most talented authors.

Tracey Bateman masterfully weaves a powerful tale between past and present that forever awakens the reader to the horrors of slavery and racism, the importance of heritage, and the abounding love of God that ties all of us together as His children.
~M. L. Tyndall, author of The Legacy of the King's Pirates
Reminiscent of the classics—think To Kill A Mockingbird situated at Scarlet’s Tara. Multiple generations battle the war of the races. Parallel injustices occur a century apart. By Kathy Carlton Willis, Dancing Word Reviewer
A fabulous historical thriller that brings to life two eras, the Deep South just after WWII and the Antebellum mid ninetieth century South prior to the Civil War. . . .

Bateman weaves her story seamlessly, as characters in the 1840s live out their lives on the pages of Freedom, alongside but never intruding, as the 1940s characters describe the awful price exacted on innocent lives for the sins of selfish, hate-filled men and women. By Vicki McCollum for BC Books
