With Every Breath will leave you breathless! That is no exaggeration. From the cover, this book looks like a mild romance-not that the cover isn’t beautiful. It is. However, it belies the intrigue, mystery and passion that are between the pages of this book. Simply put, I loved it! Kate Livingston is a government worker in Washington D.C. and she is hoping that she can someday do work that fits her intelligence and talent. Never able to attend college, she helps out at her parent’s boarding house when not working her day job at a government census bureau. She accepts a job working for her old high school rival whom she had hoped to never see again. He has become a doctor and she cannot turn down the opportunity to do important work helping him find a cure for tuberculosis. Need I say more?! I will leave you to watch this story unfold. A word to the wise; set aside a few uninterrupted days to read this. Seriously! I finished it in three days and that was because I could only put it down to sleep-and barely that! Ms. Camden writes with a style that makes reading an easy enjoyable journey while at the same time having the ability to write complications to the plot that are a natural outcome of the characters’ personalities and quirks. The story fits the characters that she draws-she knows her story, fits her characters to that story and transports the reader to that time and place. This was my first time to read a novel by this author but it will not be my last. Well done, Ms. Camden! I give With Every Breath five stars!
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher, Bethany House, in exchange for my honest review. These words are my opinion.
