Jessica Barry’s Freefall begins as an action-packed/heart-stopping thriller as it logically and smoothly leads into the self-examination of two women estranged from each other but still united by love. Freefall smoothly moves from Allison’s ordeal in the Rockies, where she is exhausted, hungry and hurt, to Maggie, consumed by grief. But Jessica Barry delves deep to show the true character of mother and daughter, neither of whom will give up. Allison knows that the only person she can trust is Maggie and she is determined to make her way back home. Maggie is stunned that her research into Allison’s last two years shows that her daughter may have been unwittingly involved in deceit and corruption. Published in Daily Times, January 13th 2019.
