The book centers on three young adult siblings who go to Colorado Springs during the 1880s so that Odessa can be treated in a tuberculosis sanatorium in the clean mountain air. Part of a trilogy, Breathe sets up conflicts for each main character, with dastardly crooks and shining heroes that we will probably meet again in the next books of the set. While I found this Christian historical novel readable and the characters interesting, the best part about the book is Bergren's descriptions of Colorado, where she lives. Having visited Colorado Springs and the Garden of the Gods as a teenager, I can still remember the stark landscape and the amazing rock outcroppings. Being able to visualize the Western setting of the book gave me greater enjoyment of the cowboys and outlaws that populate the story.
