Publisher's Description

Millie is just a girl. But she’s the only one strong enough to break the family cycle.

In Depression-era Mississippi, Millie Reynolds longs to escape the madness that marks her world. With an abusive father and a "nothing mama," she struggles to find a place where she really belongs. For answers,

Millie turns to the Gypsies who caravan through town each spring. The travelers lead Millie to a key that unlocks generations of shocking family secrets. When tragedy strikes, the mysterious contents of the box give Millie the tools she needs to break her family’s longstanding cycle of madness and abuse. Through it all, Millie experiences the thrill of first love while fighting to trust the God she believes has abandoned her. With the power of forgiveness, can Millie finally make her way into the free?

Saturated in Southern ambiance and written in the vein of other Southern literary bestsellers like The Help by Kathryn Stockett and CrookedLetter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin, Julie Cantrell has created Into theFree—now a New York Times bestseller—a story that will sweep you away long after the novel ends.

Editorial Reviews

'A young girl growing into adolescence confronts family abuse and a dark past in this lyrical debut novel. Cantrell’s exquisitely written story immerses readers in a world that is as cruel as it is beautiful. From the opening lines to the very last sentence, the book’s magnetic prose bewitches and enthralls on every page. A visceral and gripping journey of a young woman’s revelations about God and self, this novel will surely excite any reader who appreciates a compelling story about personal struggle and spiritual resilience.'

    A heartbreaking and wonderful read!

    Julie Cantrell has created a 9 year old narrator in Millie Reynolds that has me feeling for her now very nearly the same as I remember feeling for Scout in To Kill A Mockingbird when I first read it over 30 years ago.

    Millie as a nine year old is charming, and a gateway into a childhood that is filled with the wonder of hearing trees sing and helping an older neighbor, Sloth (whose nickname slowly grew on me and greatly formed how I imagine him) care for his chickens.

    As the story moves forward, we leap to Millie as a sixteen year old experiencing her first romance as well as further tragedies.

    This is an intense story, filled with raw emotion. The poverty, violence and utter desolation that Millie endures makes the conclusion all the sweeter. Instead of pitying her for her circumstances, I found much to admire in her continued refusal to be a victim and ability to find her faith after all that occurs.

    Highly recommended for those who enjoy a strong heroine, first person narrative, and raw but wonderful stories set during the 1930's and early 1940's. I'm looking forward to reading more of Millie's story in book 2, When Mountains Move.
