When should love take a stand?
Freiya’s life is perfect. She’s got doting parents, a classroom of adorable kindergarteners, and the love of her life. Even if Sabrina insists on discretion in their private Catholic school, they share happiness in private.
That is, until the bombshell hits. Their principal demands a “Fight for Families” covenant to refrain from “sexual perversion.” All teachers must sign. No exceptions.
Sign, Sabrina says. Otherwise, they’ll lose their job, privacy, and home.
Freiya doesn’t want to betray the woman she loves, but how can she sign a document that denounces their love? Is standing up for love worth losing her livelihood?
If she speaks the truth, she’ll lose everything.
If she lies, she’ll lose even more.
How can Freiya take a stand for what’s right when the choices are wrong?
How can it be wrong to love the woman who makes her life worth living?
The truth should set them free, but Freiya’s stand threatens to destroy the very love she refuses to deny.
When “religious freedom” legislates against identity, how can Freiya and Sabrina survive?
I must admit – I have only read a short story by this author before, so when I saw this one on sale on Amazon, I quickly grabbed it for the chance to read a full length by Vitsky.
Overall, I did enjoy the book. Vitsky did a great job at bringing the emotions that Freiya was feeling off the page. I was so drawn into Freiya’s character that I literally couldn’t put the book down.
I loved how this was about Freiya taking a stand and not backing down in what she believed in. She was willing to fight for what, and who, she loved and didn’t care about the consequences. The strength that she had was just amazing. I seriously wish that I had even a quarter of her strength.
Now, the reason why it’s a 4 star instead of a 5 star. Sabrina. I just couldn’t stand her. To be honest, I was confused as to why Freiya and Sabrina were together. I didn’t get any feelings that Sabrina actually cared about Freiya.
Overall though – this was a good read for me and I will be sure to look into more books from Vitsky in the future!
