“With Every Breath” ~ Book Review

Nov 30, 2015 by

Welcome back to Rachel’s Back Talk! I’m so glad you could join me again. Today I am reviewing one of Elizabeth Camden’s With Every Breath


As is my custom, if I could ask Elizabeth one question about With Every Breath it would be — “What made you want to write about tuberculosis?” And if you want to know why I asked that question, I guess you’ll just have to read the book to find out!


And without further ado, onto Rachel’s Back Talk!


From the Back Cover:

Washington D.C., 1891.

In the shadow of the nation’s capital, Kate Livingston has a respectable job as a government statistician when she encounters a rival from her past, the insufferable Trevor McDonough. A Harvard-trained physician, Trevor never showed the tiniest flicker of interest in Kate, so why did he track her down after more than ten years apart to recruit her onto his medical team? In a daring move, Kate agrees to Trevor’s risky proposal to work side-by-side in a quest to rid the world of tuberculosis, a disease so deadly it could kill anyone coming too close.

As Kate begins to unlock the mysteries of Trevor’s past, she begins falling in love with this fascinating man…but she soon learns his terrible secret. Meanwhile, a while a shadowy enemy lurks in the background, threatening to destroy everything they hold dear.

A story of courage and betrayal, triumph and redemption, Kate and Trevor will risk everything to overcome the barriers between them.

There is just something about Elizabeth’s writing that I love! The characters become so real and just draw me right in. I find that I become emotionally drawn into the books and the characters just feel so real!

Kate was a headstrong woman who knows what she wants, and is not afraid to take a job even if her childhood rival offered it to her. I loved Kate’s job and she was so good at what she did — including arguing with Trevor. Honestly their arguments were the best! Everything was a competition, but they found out that there were mutually feelings of respect too.

Towards the end of the book, I appreciated the strength it took for Kate to come to terms with Trevor’s job. Watching someone you love and knowing they are in danger is something that can strengthen or break a relationship. And even though Trevor was rough with Kate, they both came to a common understanding.
