With Every Breath

With Every Breath
By: Elizabeth Camden
Rating: 2 stars

In the shadow of the nation's capital, Kate Livingston holds a respectable position 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, and she's bewildered at the way he suddenly seeks her out. Surprising even herself, Kate agrees to Trevor's entirely unexpected and risky proposal to work side-by-side with him in his quest to rid the world of tuberculosis, a contagious and deadly disease.

As Kate begins to unlock the mysteries of Trevor's past, she realizes there is much more to him than she could have imagined. His hidden depths may fascinate her, but his most closely guarded secrets and a shadowy enemy lurking in the background carry a serious threat to their future.

When the truth of the past comes out, threatening to destroy everything they hold dear, how will Trevor and Kate ever overcome all that stands in their way?

I am sorry to say that I had to put this book down. I don't put books down often. But this one, I did - I had to. The whole feel of the book from the very beginning was somewhat heavy. The theme of tuberculosis was somewhat disturbing, but the reason I had to put this book down was inappropriate subject matter mentioned, and from then on I did not want to finish the book. I know it may sound trivial to some people, but, honestly, none of that ever needs to be put into Christian fiction. It was really frustrating. Otherwise, I was semi-enjoying the story.

 Also, I wish that the characters would've acted more like Christians. I know that I cannot judge for the whole book, but from what I did read I would have liked a bit more of a Christian feel.

Trevor was an interesting character, and I wish I knew what his backstory was and why he ‘needed the money’ from the scholarship. Tick was also a good character, from what I saw of him.

I can see that Elizabeth has a good writing style, but I can't read inappropriate books.

I received this book from the publisher in exchange for my honest review. The feelings expressed above are entirely my own.
