Publisher's Summary

"I just hope I...have the spirit to go on fighting. Have the power to take on forces that are so much bigger than me." On the run, Erika, her husband, Vince, and their children flee the government forces in search of a new life.

The Great Quake 10 years ago left the United States devastated. FEMA camps sprouted up in Regional Districts to control the chaos and separate the landowners from the refugees. Erika and her family spent nine years as refugees in the camp before they found out that Vince's parents were still alive and they were searching for them. The Las Vegas FEMA Director, realizing his mistake, attempted to have the family eliminated to save his career. Vince and Erika take their family's future into their own hands and flee the camp in a cross-country action-packed adventure. Will they find Vince's parents? Will society accept them again? Can they accept this new government system?

Could not finish!

There was something disconcerning about the narrators voice and inflections on words when narrating. Just could not finish this book, infact only listened for 10m
min.

Well played out

I really enjoyed this story. I had read Sarah's first book, so I was familiar with the major characters. It was fun to following their story. It wasn't necessary though, as the author did a good job of brief back stories to fill you in. The book had a few unexpected twists which I enjoyed. With the author's writing style, she does well teaching tactics, reasoning and basic survival skills using the power of storytelling.
I am looking forward to digging into the previous volumes.

A Drama of Survival of Liberty In Crisis

Would you consider the audio edition of The Walls of Freedom to be better than the print version?

Though I have not read the print version, I found that listening to the audio book compelled me to pay closer attention than I would to a printed book, in which I might often refer back easily to reread sections.

What other book might you compare The Walls of Freedom to and why?

History records many times when liberties were suspended during times of crisis. The book "They Were Expendable" by W. L. White comes to mind.

Have you listened to any of Sara F. Hathaway’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I've listened to samples before, but listening in the context of the entire narrative was much more compelling.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The account of enforced infertility.

Any additional comments?

Filled with drama and action, vivid character definition, and great storytelling, “The Walls of Freedom” audio book by Sara F. Hathaway presents a survival scenario after a devastating catastrophe in the U.S. that led me to realize how much I take for granted and how much I need to prepare for whatever lies ahead. In her own lively and creative way, the author instills survival knowledge and skills and triggers the wide range of difficulties and emotions that can and would arise if the world I’m comfortable in and take for granted falls apart. In the end, I’m left asking what kind of nation, city, community, and family do I want to live in, what kind of a person do I want to be, and where is the proper balance between individual freedom, justice, and liberty and governmental responsibility and social welfare? What are the limits of human rights in calm and in crisis?
