My Opinion

Breathe Ava by Della Leshae is an emotional and heartbreaking novel about a young woman and her biggest wish to become a mother. The debut novel is told from the perspective of the main character Ava that gives the reader a close look inside Ava’s wishes, hopes, problems and feelings.

I didn’t know anything about assisted fertilization before I read this book. I was quite shocked what all the woman had to suffer through in the IVF cycles. The book teaches a lot about the preparation, the process and the health problems like hormonal fluctuations of assisted fertilization.

The story about Ava and her second husband James and their journey through conceive is an emotional roller coaster ride. Once Ava make progress the reader is happy as well, but when something went wrong you suffer with Ava. She is a strong fighter who gives everything for her biggest wish to be a mother. Immediately I took Ava into my heart because of her admirable and likeable character. There are a lot of barriers on Ava’s way to conceive a child and some strokes of fate that shatter her world into pieces. I cried a lot of tears with Ava: So be prepared with tissues. The end is really unexpected and emotional. I couldn’t stop crying and can’t wait for the second book.


Breathe Ava by Della Leshae is a brilliant emotional novel about conceive with the help of assisted fertilization. The reader experience an emotional roller coaster ride with the main character Ava on her journey to be a mother. You are happy with every step towards motherhood and you cry with Ava when she fails. The end is really unexpected and so emotional that I couldn’t stop crying. A wonderful book for everyone who wants some emotional reading time.

    Sag mal, es kommt aber nicht das Thema Intersexualität vor?
    Es hört sich danach an.

      Nein, es geht nur um eine Frau, die nicht auf natürlichem Weg schwanger werden kann und probiert ihren Wunsch dann durch künstliche Befruchtung zu erfüllen. 🙂

        Ah, okay. Streng genommen fällt das auch da rein, ist mir aber zu wenig. Lesen will ich’s trotzdem. Aber wann will ich das denn nicht?

        Ja genau, aber leider leben wir nicht ewig (oder zum Glück, je nachdem, wie man es sieht!)
