"With Every Breath" by Elizabeth Camden is one of my top three favorite authors newest stand alone novel. It will be released on July 29, 2014, by Bethany House publishers.
All during high school, Kate Livingston had battled Trevor McDonough. English, math, science, and even just racing to set places such as a staircase, or desk, Kate and Trevor competed against one another. Finally, it all came down to a scholarship for college, which Kate wanted because her family was poor, and despised the thought of Trevor getting because he was a rich immigrant from Scotland.
Well, fast-forward a couple of years, and Kate is a government worker while her family runs a boardinghouse, and Trevor has not been heard from since that fateful day of the competition. Kate hates her job, but can't afford to lose it. Then, out of the blue, Kate is offered a job in assisting in research for a cure for tuberculosis. She is intrigued, and goes to interview, only to discover that Trevor has sought her out and wants to hire her, for no other reason except that he knows that she has a fiery spirit and will work with a passion.
Trevor has massive pain from his past and present which gives him a passion for life and finding a cure for tuberculosis, and knows that Kate will be the only one who will be able to match his desire for a cure.
This was a very emotional and captivating read, and I was, once again, not let down by Elizabeth Camden's newest release. I am always on the edge of my seat for another book by her. "With Every Breath" is obviously deeply researched, yet not boring. The characters are so real and the plot and setting so unique. I would recommend this book for sure.
Thank you so much to Bethany House for providing me with an ecopy of this book to read and review. All opinions are my own, and were not required to be positive.
