Review: With Every Breath by Elizabeth Camden

About the book:

With Every Breath by Elizabeth Camden
Bethany House

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?

My review:

            This was my first read by Elizabeth Camden but I will definitely be pulling her other novels out of to be read pile. This author has a way with words and her writing is so elegant it brought the scenes to life for me. As an added bonus, her books always have some of the most beautiful covers!
Kate Livingston had always dreamed of going to college but her hopes were shattered when her high school rival Trevor McDonough won the scholarship award instead. Now she has a respectable government job as a statistician where her ability with numbers could really shine if her insufferable boss didn’t discourage anyone trying to better their position. When Trevor shows up out of the blue with a job offer studying Tuberculosis, Kate leaps at the chance although it will mean working closely with the man who shattered her dreams. Can they learn to trust and forgive each other?
I truly enjoyed every inch of this story. It was interesting learning more about Tuberculosis and seeing how Trevor threw himself into his work with disregard for his own health in order to help others. I loved Kate as well. She was a smart and deeply caring individual who grew a lot as a character. I would recommend this book to historical fans and can’t wait to read more from this author!
