I am reading through The Homeward Trilogy series this month. Breathe is the first book in the trilogy, as well as the first book that I have read by this author. It will definitely not be my last!
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!
I won this book in a giveaway. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
