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.
A story that I think a lot of parents of teenagers, like myself, will be able to relate to because it not only opens up to us the world that our young adults inhabit but a world that us, as parents, are constantly trying to navigate in order to guide our children – Book Muster Down Under
