Breathless - a family in crisis. Highly recommended!,
This review is from: Breathless (Kindle Edition)
There is something extraordinarily authentic about this novel of a family in crisis. The characters are compelling and I got completely wrapped up in the dilemmas and challenges and relationships so beautifully portrayed in this gripping novel.
Clare, long-married, with teenage children, whose first love turns up just when she is at last facing the reality of life married to a domineering, obsessive man who turns out to have secrets of his own. Her priority is her daughter Hannah, who has cystic fibrosis, and while the condition is central to the novel it does not dominate it in any way.
I think this novel would appeal to the same readers who loved Thursdays in the Park, except I think this is much better. Highly recommended!
