A Reason to Breathe – Rebecca Donovan : my point of view



“No one tried to get involved with me, and I kept to myself. This was the place where everything was supposed to be safe and easy. How could Evan Mathews unravel my constant universe in just one day?”

In the affluent town of Weslyn, Connecticut, where most people worry about what to be seen in and who to be seen with, Emma Thomas would rather not be seen at all. She’s more concerned with feigning perfection while pulling down her sleeves to conceal the bruises – not wanting anyone to know how far from perfect her life truly is. Without expecting it, she finds love. It challenges her to recognize her own worth – but at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.

Reason to Breathe is an electrifying page turner from start to finish, a unique tale of life-changing love, unspeakable cruelty, and one girl’s fragile grasp of hope.

Let me just say I have never read a book that had me so upset and on the edge of my seat the way this one did. I can’t find anything to fill the void this book caused.

I went through all kinds of emotions while reading. Fluidity and really good construction.

I literally could not put it down. I HAD to know how it ended, so I was grabing the book everytime I could and devoured  every moment.

We had a chance to really get to know the characters all worked so well together.
Something bothered me about 3/4 in the book, but I understand now why the plot and character were in there and now I realize it added to the character of Emma.
I really did feel as if I knew these characters and cared about them.
My heart was pounding at some bits and I really rallied for Emma. She was selfless and her relationship with Evan was just wonderful. The interaction between these two was just beautiful.
The ending …  Say no more!

Well Played Rebecca… Well Played!
