Not all of war’s destruction takes place on the battlefield.
Violet’s heart flutters from the scarlet fever she survived as a child, and it beats faster at the sight of John Smith, the man she plans to marry. America is entrenched in WWII, and when John enlists, Violet is certain she won’t ever forgive him for dashing their dreams. As the realities of war slowly overtake her life, Violet's days are filled with uncertainty and grief. She struggles to maintain her faith in John, as the world as she knows it, crumbles.
Becoming Mrs. Smith is the inspiring, and at times, heartbreaking story of a woman’s struggle to reclaim what she lost. War stole the man she loves, and childhood illness weakened her heart—perhaps beyond repair. While guns rage in Europe, the war Violet faces at home may be even more devastating.

Peace, serenity, balance... it is all attainable-if you just Breathe.It all comes down to breath. If we don't breathe deeply enough, we cannot fill ourselves with the joy and beauty of the world around us. If we don't release that breath, we cannot let go of all the hectic ugliness that goes hand in hand with living in a modern and complicated world.When you start on this photographic journey-this path of quiet insight and reflection-you will start to breathe again. You will immerse yourself in these diverse and beautiful images and thoughtful words, and find rejuvenation for your heart and mind.
This is the perfect book for that friend or family member who's struggling with the fast pace of life. Each concept of mindfulness is concisely worded and illustrated by one photograph that helps to focus the reader's attention on the concept. It's a book that you could read and enjoy in one sitting, or you could read a page and focus on that idea throughout the day. You don't have to give it away, either...I kept mine!
What an inspiring read! This book has become a fixture on our night table. Instead of my phone, it’s the first thing I open in the morning…inhale the beautiful words that accompany stunning photography and get ready to embrace a new day. If you have trouble falling asleep, “Breathe” will help you to focus and be in the moment. My husband has difficulty falling asleep and has taken the book to his side of the bed. Time for another copy. I highly recommend “Breathe” to all of those who only have moments to spare to refocus and be brought to a calmer place.
