Just like the cover"Deep Breathing"tells the reader about the façade we all project to those around us. The beautiful mural on the building can look to people as the perceive her. . She can be sexy, aloof, invincible confident, arrogant, but never shy or unable. It is beyond words what someone suffers with mental or physical disabilities. and can still deceive those around them. Somehow Mrs.Jandrey takes us there, and gives us a glimpse of humanity with out the façade. While doing so she also adds suspense and humor. VERY WELL DONE

Author G. Davies Jandrey depicts life on the borders with authenticity, evocative prose, great dialog and stinging humor, balancing darkness with wisdom, hope and humanity. America’s border with Mexico parallels society’s borders, the successful walled away from the invisible who inhabit the other side. The homeless, the wheelchair-bound, the immigrant, the reject and the refugee… all are given authentic voices and draw the reader in to that haunting human border between loving and being loved. The realities of handicap, loneliness, homelessness and betrayal are beautifully balanced between well-researched detail and perceptive points of view, all hauntingly told in a story as agile and gripping as a pole dancer caught between delight in her body and the need for cash. By turns scary, sad, glorious, wise and forgiving, this novel offers wisdom to endure, mercy to change our point of view, and hope to believe in karma, God, or fate’s generosity. I’ll never look at a homeless woman the same way after reading this. And I’ll try more carefully to see the wheelchair-bound. Some need help. Some can offer help. All of us need love. And for each of us “The difference between a flower and a weed is perception” as Abby learns from her bag of Karma tea. A wonderful read, highly recommended, haunting with just the right sense of humor, this novel is both bleak and totally beautiful, from beginning to a wondrously satisfying end. Disclosure: I was given a pre-release copy and I love it!
