Overview

Learning to Breathe by Karen White

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Tradd Street novels comes a richly emotional story about a woman who discovers that taking a leap of faith is better than always wondering what might have been…

Brenna O'Brien doesn't believe in happy endings. Not since the love of her life, Pierce McGovern, left her years ago without a word. Now, she leads a quiet life surrounded by her four matchmaking sisters, running a historic movie theater and collecting old wartime letters. But she leaves the letters unopened, preferring to imagine their possibilities rather than risk being disappointed.

Then Pierce comes back to town, shattering Brenna's hard-earned peace—and forcing her to re-examine everything, and realize that if she doesn't come to terms with the life she let slip away, she may never have the courage to go after the life she wants.

I have just finished reading my first three Karen White books -- all in a row. I honestly cannot tell you which one I liked best as they were all so good! I read THE HOUSE ON TRADD STREET first, then THE LOST HOURS. I ran to the B&N and bought three more and just finished reading LEARNING TO BREATHE. This book would especially be enjoyed by family historians and genealogists, but is a super read for anyone. Karen's characters building skills are terrific. I strongly recommend this author!

This book seemed to encapsulate what every girl at some point in life goes through: the love of a lifetime, the man she wants, the friend who never has let her down, and having to choose between the two. I reread this book every year and still love it. Karen White writes as if you are thinking out loud. Perfect for the beach, on a plane, or when you want to procrastinate on cleaning the house.

This is the 2nd book I have read by Karen White and I think she is a GREAT writer. The 1st I read was Pieces of the Heart, which I referred to for the longest time as my FAVORITE. Learning to Breathe is written with the same amount of passion. I need to go purchase Karen's other books now.

When I read this book, parts of it were like reading the screenplay of my life. I couldn't put the book down! I can't wait to read more books by Karen White.

In Indianola, Louisiana, Brenna O¿Brien owns and operates the Royal Majestic Theatre when her former teenage lover Pierce McGovern returns home from San Francisco. The son of a local doctor, Pierce just left Brenna behind when he deserted the town. Now he is back to place his ailing father in the assisted living complex the Village and to open a multiplex theatre that will shut down Brenna¿s operation.-------------- Pierce blames his abrupt departure and his sarcastic outlook on Brenna. However, he admits to himself he still wants her Brenna feels the same way but has decided to marry someone else. His ailing dad shows Brenna love letters that make her realize one should never settle, but risking her heart seems foolish as he rejected her once and will break her heart into a zillion pieces this time.-------------------- This is a terrific second chance at love romance starring two likable protagonists who blame the other for the end of the first time together. The support cast is strong as his forgetful father and her relatives especially her introspective young nephew bring wisdom to the pair of hurting soulmates. Karen White writes a deep Bayou contemporary love story as her lead pair begins LEARNING TO BREATH in the love they share.--------- Harriet Klausner
