AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Shallow Breath is a mesmerising novel about family secrets and how far you would go to save someone you love.

'Two years ago, Desi Priest made a horrific mistake and destroyed her family.

'Now, she is coming home to make amends: to her daughter, Maya, who's nurturing her own dangerous plan; to her brother, Jackson, who blames himself; and to her close friend, Pete, who has spent years shielding her from a devastating truth.

'But as Desi returns to her beloved house by the ocean, there is a stranger waiting for her. Someone who needs her help. Someone whose arrival will reveal a chain of secrets hidden for over twenty years.

'And one by one the family will be forced to confront the possibility that they have somehow got things terribly, tragically wrong ...

'Set across five continents, Shallow Breath is a compelling novel of dashed dreams and second chances. But most of all it is a story about love, and what it really means to be free.' (From the publisher's website.)
