From the celebrated author of Swimming at Night, a powerful and moving saga of one woman’s struggle to overcome her husband’s death and uncover his dark, mysterious past.

Eva has only been married for eight months when her husband, Jackson, is swept to his death while fishing. Weighed down by confusion and sorrow, Eva decides to take leave of her midwifery practice in London and visit Jackson’s estranged family in Tasmania with the hope of grieving together.

Instead, she discovers that the man she loved so deeply is not the man she thought she knew. Jackson’s father and brother reveal a dark past, exposing the lies her marriage was built upon. As Eva struggles to come to terms with the depth of Jackson’s deception, she must also confront her growing attraction to Jackson’s brother, Saul, who offers her intimacy, passion, and answers to her most troubling questions.

Will Eva be able to move forward in life, or will she be caught up in a romance with Saul, haunted by her husband’s past? Threading together beautiful, wild settings and suspenseful twists, A Single Breath is a gripping tale of secrets, betrayal, and new beginnings.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Single Breath I really enjoyed this, the setting, the mystery, the romantic chemistry, it maybe takes one more melodramatic turn than necessary, but overall, it’s a satisfying, page-turning read. #plumreview I received this through a giveaway.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A Decent Read I am partial to memoirs or historical fiction, but this book definitely kept my interest and I finished it very quickly. It was entertaining, but does not leave a last impression. It is the type of book I will forget what happened a month from now.

Editorial Reviews

"I could not put down Lucy Clarke's engaging debut, Swimming at Night. As Katie searched for the truth about her sister's death, I savored being an armchair traveler to seaside locales around the world."
