Rebecca Watersabout this book: I have been touched by the way readers of Breathing on Her Own have connected to Molly Tipton, the main character in the book. I love to read Christian fiction but sappy, perfect characters make me feel inadequate. Molly is flawed. She wants people to think she has it all together, but she doesn't. It takes an unthinkable accident in her family to make Molly examine her own life. So many of my readers have shared the book made them reflect on who they are and who they want to be as believers.
The book didn't start out that way. My first thought was that Molly's daughter would be the one to "learn her lesson." I assumed Laney was wrong in drinking and driving and this accident would cause her to reflect on her own choices. I was as surprised as my readers to discover it was Molly's heart and life that needed healing.
That is the way of books, and characters, and writing. They seem to take on a life of their own, carrying the author with them on a journey beyond what was imagined. But when that journey leads to something wonderful, it is well worth the ride.
