While I love a good novel, I struggle to find a well-written, clean, and intriguing novel. Of the seventy-nine books I read last year, only four were novels.
What can I say? After you’ve read classics like To Kill a Mockingbird and L.M. Montgomery’s Anne books, it’s hard to read bland fiction.
Elizabeth Camden’s With Every Breath is certainly not bland or boring.
Set in 1891 Washington D.C., Kate Livingston is a lively, brilliant, redheaded statistician. When she receives a mysterious request to interview for a job at Washington Memorial Hospital, Kate is launched on a journey filled with past rivalries, death threats, and medical research on one of the most deadly diseases of the time.
As Kate struggles to come to grips with her faith and the brevity of life, she is confronted with her lack of faith, the finitude of humanity, and the Sovereignty of God (Proverbs 3:5, Psalm 103:15-16, Proverbs 16:9).
Overall, With Every Breath is a wonderful and fascinating novel that I will be reading again, and would highly recommend. I would give With Every Breath an “A”.
