Sweet Breath of Memory - Review & Giveaway

Review by Marlene Engel
Two years after Cate’s husband is killed in Iraq, she needs to be in an area that won’t serve as a constant reminder of what she lost.  She chooses to move to Amberley, Massachusetts in the hope of making a new life for herself.  What she didn’t expect was to find a close-knit group of ladies who are all so different, but share the sacredness of friendship.  And, after moving into a store-top apartment, she discovers journal entries chronicling the life of Holocaust survivor Miriam.  Through these entries, both women’s lives seem to parallel each other.  Though living in different times, they share similar experiences.  And, it’s through these pages, and the help of her friends, that Cate starts to heal. 

With tragic, yet powerful, events the authors transports us in time and around the world.  We are gifted with a cast of amazing characters and a story that will have us anxious to share it with others.
