Review by: DV Berkom on Feb. 13, 2014 :
Stellar Novel with Well-Drawn Characters
Drawing Breath simply took my breath away with its well-drawn characters and absorbing story line. Boris deftly weaves together the stories of Daniel and Caitlin, the 2 main protagonists in the book, and I found myself pulled back again and again into their lives and the lives of those around them. Boris writes as a humanist, showing us the intrinsic value in the everyday. I was impressed with her ability to weave in the small events that (generally unnoticed) wind up giving so much meaning to our lives. Her willingness to write about the big events of life with uncommon sensitivity also speaks to her humanity.

Highly recommended.
