BOOK REVIEW OF THE WEEK: Breath by Lisa Tawn Bergren

Much more than a historical romance, Lisa Tawn Bergren creates a complex suspenseful mystery set 1800’s Colorado Territory.  The novel opens with the main character, Odessa St Clair, dying of consumption on a train to Colorado Springs to find the “cure”.  An intricate plot develops with murder, silver mines and a collection of creepy guys that keeps the reader involved.  Having a dashing rancher also battling consumption doesn’t hurt one bit!  Beyond turning to her faith for help with the troubles around her, this heroine turns to God for each precious breath.  I found the character very engrossing.  What if I knew I needed God with every breath?   The characters of Odessa’s brother (a boxer) and sister (an opera singer) are fully developed with key roles in Odessa’s story leaving me eager to read the rest of the trilogy.
