Stunning...I couldn't put it down!
on 27 March 2014
Eva is so in love with her husband Jackson, so when he dies in a tragic accident she is left devastated. Needing closure and wanting to know more about Jackson’s life before he met her, Eva takes a journey to Tasmania to meet his estranged family. But when she arrives, things are not all they seem…
Oh my…I was left utterly speechless by this book. I know I had high hopes after my LOVE for The Sea Sisters, and A Single Breath exceeded my hopes for a brilliant story! Wow.
I was drawn in from the very first lines, and along with Eva I quickly had many questions – Why aren't things as they seem? What was going to happen when Eva reached Tasmania and found Jackson’s family?
A Single Breath is fascinating and surprising all at once. With every chapter I discovered something new and unexpected, and Lucy’s writing is so fantastic because although I had ideas of what might happen, I was wrong and I was left gasping in shock at all of the twists and turns I came across. I loved that I had no idea what would happen next, and I enjoyed that I was discovering all of these revelations along with Eva, so it helped me feel close to her and left me urging her on to uncover the truth about Jackson and his life.
The descriptions are STUNNING. I loved the scenes of fishing and diving in Tasmania, and when I was reading these scenes it felt as though I had been transported there and I was living those moments with the characters. Lucy’s writing had me looking up these beautiful places and wishing I was heading there myself!
A Single Breath is an intriguing story that pulled me in from the first page, and had me racing through desperate to know what would happen. I couldn’t tear myself away from this book, the words are stunning, the plot is complex and gripping and it is a story that has stayed with me since finishing. Wow.
