Breathe is more than just a prairie romance, it is an edge of your seat page turning mystery. This book is deeper than most historical fiction books that you will find and it really makes you think. There is a darker side of things, but not too dark to survive without God on your side. In this

novel, instead of following one character with various side characters in the background, the reader really follows the three different St. Clair siblings on their individual adventures. Having one story come to a content closure in this book, I really look forward to the next two books in the series to find out just how their journeys continue.

I loved the way the title of this story tied so well into the story line of this book. This story takes place in 1883 in Colorado, and deals with someone who has a life-threatening illness which they called consumption back then. Odessa arrives in Colorado Springs with her brother Dominic and

sister Moira in the hopes that her life will be spared by entering the sanitarium there.

This series will give you three stories of these three siblings and will let you see their dreams and desires. Odessa will seek to recover and also seek to unravel a mysterious poem left to her by one of the patients who will die. She will also discover love and give her heart to a man who would give his life if necessary to keep Odessa safe. There was adventure, mystery, sickness and sorrow, but along the way I found myself getting to know and appreciate this family (although I must admit both Dominic and Moira have some real growing up to do and hopefully we will see that in books 2 and 3).
