Finding Freedom – Staff Review – Maddie

Finding Freedom by Erin French (Request)(CloudLibrary)

Erin French grew up in the small town of Freedom Maine, slightly north of Belfast. SHe saw her fair share of hardships, struggling with addiction, being a single mother, abusive relationships, and running a business when the cards were stacked against her. Despite everything thrown her way, she has overcome the challenges and succeeded in running a pop-up dining experience out of an air-stream trailer, and later operating a restaurant that people from all over the world come to visit.

Having grown up in, but never having heard of the Lost Kitchen until last year I was intrigued to read about how it came to be such a phenomenon. French tells a compelling story about how her dreams came to fruition in a way that keeps readers engaged throughout the story. Her memoir is well written and not at all dry as some memoirs and biographies can be.
