Review – Breathe: A Novel of Colorado by Lisa T. Bergren

BreatheI 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.
