Publisher's Summary

"This was the place where everything was supposed to be safe and easy. No one tried to get involved with me, and I kept to myself. 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 - 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 - at the risk of revealing the terrible secret she’s desperate to hide.
One girl's story of unspeakable cruelty, life-changing love, and her precarious grasp of hope, Reason to Breathe is the first installment in the acclaimed Breathing Series.

What about Kate Rudd’s performance did you like?

She did a great job with all the characters however she did an exceptional job conveying Carol's hatred and dissension towards Emma.

Any additional comments?

Wow! This is a very intense angst filled story. Be prepared to feel an array of emotions. I was totally emotionally drained by the end. The story contained true to life descriptions of what each character was feeling at the time. I could feel every single emotion! Truely a great story! Can't wait to read the next book.
