Living just outside of Key West Florida, twenty-four-year-old Collin was enjoying his life by taking tourist fishing on his large boat. He was engaged to the lovely young lady named Morgan. His parents, George and Betty, supported his decision not to go to college, and allowed him to dock his boat almost literally in their backyard. His younger brother, Joey, was going to graduate high school and then go on to college. Despite all future plans, fate steps in and wrecks havoc onto Collin's world. After a freak accident on Joey’s graduation day, George and Betty are killed. Collin and Joey’s world is turned upside down. Collin goes into a deep depression and pushes Morgan away from him. Joey delays going to college and becomes the adult of the household, as Collin begins drinking his problems away.
When Joey is out of the house, Collin sneaks out to his boat to earn money, but he isn’t taking tourist fishing - he never was. He has been keeping a dark secret, one that started before his parent’s death.
90 Miles to Freedom is an emotional journey about a young man who must confront his own actions and explore what is really important to him. The narration switches back and forth throughout the novel, from Collin’s point-of-view to the point-of-view of a doctor trying to escape the horrors of Cuba and his long journey to America. One simple act of humanity can cause a change reaction in many peoples’ lives. I enjoyed reading 90 Miles to Freedom, which is more sentimental and realistic than most of the mainstream novels on the market. I recommend the book to all readers!
*I would like to thank the author for sending me a review to copy and for providing the bookmarks.
