Her First Breath is a captivating story of the unlikely friendship between an elderly lady and a headstrong young woman who are thrown together by circumstances beyond their control.
Sofie Swanson is a private and willful young woman. Independent to the core, Sofie is horrified to learn she is sharing a hospital room with Naomi Moore, an elderly woman seemingly focused on bringing out the worst in her.
Sofie, a Yale Law School graduate and attorney, is determined to blame God for her unhappy lot in life. Naomi, a religious and motherly woman born and raised in West Virginia, praises Him for her life. Perplexed and intrigued by her new roommate’s unending faith in a God she does not know or understand, Sofie soon unearths parts of herself she would rather leave buried. As an unlikely friendship ensues, Sophie embarks on a profound journey to a new beginning she never could have imagined.
