Scottsdale, AZ (PressExposure) December 10, 2010 -- In Farewell to Freedom, a heartbroken woman seeks love in a place called Freedom unaware that the elements and individuals she meets along the way may potentially destroy her.
Just days before Christmas, Cheyenne flees to Las Vegas to escape the heartbreak of a failing marriage. While there she meets a handsome cowboy named Rowdy Harrison from Freedom, Oklahoma. Upon returning home from the sinful weekend in Vegas, she accepts an invitation to visit Rowdy in Freedom for New Year's.
Their love affair quickly becomes a business relationship when Cheyenne buys into Rowdy's bucking bull business. Moving to Freedom, she believes that living life on a ranch with a cowboy will take her back in time to a childhood place where she'd once been her happiest. However, the daily struggles of life in the country take a toll on her, and Cheyenne's escape to Freedom becomes far more than she'd bargained for.
