Breathe was such an interesting and enjoyable story to read. I am excited that each sibling will get their own book in this trilogy. Although Odessa is the main character in Breathe, I loved that Moira and Dominic, her sister and brother, also have a lot of page time.
I have read a couple of other books about characters with consumption and I know that it was a devastating illness. I thought that that the author did such a good job at describing what Odessa and others at the sanatorium were going through during a coughing fit. Breathe also had mystery and danger to keep it moving along, as well as a sigh-worthy love story.
I’m looking forward to the next book in the series and to reading more from this author. My daughter insists that I need to read her River of Time series soon and that I will love it!
The characters were well-developed and interesting, and Odessa's struggles were suspenseful. There was no sex or bad language. Overall, I'd recommend this enjoyable novel.
While Odessa has journeyed West for "the cure" to what ails her (Consumption/TB) and is battling to just Breathe, her siblings are fighting their own battles; internal ones with external consequences. These characters are all so well written, that you will not find it hard to care for them, root for them and at times worry over them. They are characters you can relate to, the ones that make mistakes and sometimes get things right. However, with Nic & Moira, I believe we will see more struggles, mistakes and consequences ahead and of course that is the kind of stuff that makes for a good read. I like redemptive stories and I have a feeling this series will not disappoint on that end. And while this is Christian Fiction, it is not overtly in your face nor preachy. I noticed several reviews by non-christians who had in fact enjoyed this book. For a Christian, like myself, it is a good read and one that as I mentioned before, I look forward to seeing more of the growth and redeeming in these characters over the next two books!
