Publisher's Summary

Everything moved to the winds' rhythm.

In one week, a house and marriage violently disintegrate. Alone raising an infant in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Julie is surrounded by the rubble of her life - stripped bare by love and loss. Suddenly a single mother, Freed's prose captures the love and adoration for her daughter, the indomitable spirit of her New England family and her father's unwavering devotion. Touching ties survive even the most powerful surge Mother Nature delivers. This debut memoir candidly reveals intimate details of one woman's shattered dreams as well as humanity's resilience and sweet goodness. Unflinchingly honest, Naked is a remarkable true story of hope, family, and love in a southern coastal Mississippi town.

    Story
    "Great listen and my very first audio book!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Naked to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed listening to this book and just recently won a copy from the author, Julie Freed! This was the first book I've listened too and enjoyed it a lot. I get quite sleepy sometimes reading a print version and with this I just sat back and listened.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Besides the protagonist of course, I liked Jim. Jim was there when Julie needed him most. Her family was too, but I like getting to know other characters involved in what was experienced.


    What does Julie Freed bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Her own voice, it was so inspiring to know she recorded this herself! She really sat down to tell me her story!


    If you could give Naked a new subtitle, what would it be?

    Stripped
    Leveled (disasters like hurricanes and divorces have a way of leveling the playing field.)
    I think NAKED was appropriate


    Any additional comments?

    Great "listen", try it! Now I'm going to stick with it because I like the flavor of audio when I get lazy and just want to listen. Time for a new book, I have a free one! Thanks for writing NAKED Julie ~
