** Review by Gayle from Bloggers From Down Under **
It’s not often that I find myself losing the ability to write a review, for me as a blogger/reader it’s something that normally comes naturally…But I am at a complete loss for words right now….
Just Breathe touches on an extremely hard topic that many of us including those that suffer from it never quite understand. A condition that plagues the mind, that creates self doubt, self worth, that leaves a sufferer tormented by their own thoughts. It’s hard to breathe, to fight. Relationships are buckled under the weight of it all. Living, such a simple task that we all should enjoy, but sufferers of this find comfort in maybe, just maybe in taking their life away.
It’s called depression, and Just Breathe is about a man who lives with it daily.
It takes us on Jack’s journey where everyday is a fight, where every thought is jumbled.
It takes us on Devin’s journey. A woman who falls for Jack, but knows he is hiding something.
Jack and Devin, so completely opposite, but yet drawn to one another.
But can they survive?
I don’t want to give anything else away….But I will say this…
D Breeze…What you have given us with Just Breathe is nothing short of heart-wrenching, confronting and soul crushing. It’s thought provoking and breathtakingly beautiful.
A condition that has touched me personally that you executed with perfection.
This novel with stay with me always.
Jack will always be in my heart.
