A Sharp Intake of Breath by John Miller

A story of courage and sacrifice, it is a solid second novel for a writer of promise and one that left me waiting for more. - Andrew Armitage, The Sun Times (Owen Sound) July 18|Born with a split lip and cleft palate, Toshy Wolfmans life is an uphill battle. Believing he is dim-witted and ugly, Toshy finds his resentment slowly building as he is ridiculed, used, and misled. Ultimately, he is imprisoned after being caught stealing a valuable and famous diamond, the Orange Sunset. But Toshys story is not his alone -- it is shared with his two sisters: Lil, a radical and a devotee of anarchist Emma Goldman; and Bessie, who goes to work for one of Goldmans enemies, the owners of the Orange Sunset. Toshys love for his sisters drives him to make some of the bravest decisions of his life. But despite having seemingly overcome his obstacles, an ageing Toshy stuns his nephew by asking for his assistance in committing suicide. Toshy wont fully explain his decision. Nor will he fully explain why, at this late stage in life, he is obsessed with making a journey to France.
