“Susan Schoenberger has crafted a powerful novel about a woman whose remarkable strength moves us to rethink our ideas of what it means to live a meaningful life. The Virtues of Oxygen is an incredible mosaic of deep friendship, courageous spirit, and yearning to break free of boundaries that are beyond our control. Beautifully written.” —Tina Ann Forkner, author of Rose House
