"This book is well written, informative and entertaining, with a touch of magical realism courtesy of some enlightening dream sequences. Beautiful photographs throughout the book, along with helpful maps, glossaries, and character lists, make this an enjoyable and informative read. Highly recommend for anyone who enjoys Gabriel Garcia Márquez, Isabel Allende, or historical family sagas."

"The story is well built, and the use of the historical snippets add to, rather than distract from it. It is obvious that this has long been a labour of love, with great attention to detail. Amorim has also created a story dynamic enough, yet focused enough, to hold the readers’ interest, despite the abundance of people and events."

"The way the author makes the characters come alive and make you feel as if you were a part of their lives was brilliant."

"The characterisations in this story were superb and I could truly empathise with some of the female characters. They were strong, driven and powerful. They put up with a lot and were the back bones of their families."

"The highlight of Liberty Farm for me was the female characters. Helena is a damn rock, and she's a saint for putting up with what she put up with. The interweaving of women's reproductive rights in the book was glorious and I wanted more of that story angle."

"As usual, Izai does a great job with the characters in this book! I was rooting for a few and despising a few of them."
