Realizing You Can Live the Life You Want

The Liberation of Alice Love by Abby McDonald takes the reader on a journey of change. What would you do it someone stole your identity and lived your life the exact way you had always wanted to, but had been to afraid to try?

While the fake Alice Love is loading up credit card debt and dashing from city to city, the real Alice Love is sitting snugly in an attic office taking direction from her (it must be said) bitch of a boss.

When the real Alice discovers the identity theft, she takes matters into her own, very capable, hands and decides to track her down, swearing to reclaim her lost self.

The entire journey shows the reader that when you  realize it's possible to live the life you want: it changes you for the better. Yes, Alice's identity does get dragged through the gutter, but it also brings out her real personality. Until the identity that was stolen turns out to not have been her true identity at all. The readers follow Alice as she grows and changes into the person she wants to be, the person who has a grip on her own life.

Not only can readers connect with the cautious Alice who follows all the rules, but they can grow with her throughout the events that force her to take hold of a life that she thought she lost.

  1. What I loved best about THE LIBERATION OF ALICE LOVE was McDonald's whirlwind, exciting plot -- one that took us from Point A to Point B in record time, but not the point that I felt the whole thing was a farce. On the contrary: I actually found Alice's mission very believable, and I can't imagine what I would do in a situation like that. I really connected with and felt for her as she struggled to piece everything back together, but the best part?
