A Reason to Breathe by Mick Williams
About the book
(The ‘Reason’ Collection Book 2)
Is it okay to grow old disgracefully?
Seventy-two-year-old Henry Edwards has a bucket list that he is determined to complete before he ‘checks out’. A list that contains things like bungee jumping, flying aircraft, and swimming with dolphins.
Henry is also wheelchair-bound with a permanently fitted catheter bag.
Tom, Emma and the gang return to continue their trip through life’s lessons but, when Emma volunteers them to help complete Henry’s list, the trip becomes bumpier.
With new babies, sick children, and stressful jobs, it’s going to take everything they have to make Henry’s dreams come true.
The heart-warming follow-up to A Reason to Grieve.

The author knows how much I admire his style. Even though he writes different genres they always have that unique Mick Williams humour.
This book can definitely be read as a stand-alone, although it’s nice to revisit some of the characters from A Reason to Grieve.
Henry is living in an old folks home and wants to complete a few tasks before he dies. He and his friends come up with a bucket list, a list that he needs help from his friends to complete. There are certainly a variety of tasks, ranging from driving a fast car to star gazing. Each friend chooses a task to participate in with Henry.
A great cast of characters as usual from this author. Characters that you warm to and feel like you already know. We get invested in the family life of them all, the ups and downs, the happy and sad times.
Some of the stories about the residents in the home where Henry lives had me in stitches.
A real fun read that touches on some serious subjects written perfectly.
I thoroughly recommend anything by this author!
About the author
Mick Williams moved from Stoke-On-Trent, England to Kentucky, USA. Then, after almost a decade, he moved back. Then, after three years, he moved back again.
This time he’s staying.
In between reading, writing and listening to good music he still watches proper football and, for his sins, follows his local team, Port Vale. He does also still cheer for the Indianapolis Colts.
He was adopted by two cats, Crash and Thud, and resides with his patient wife (who is also tiring of moving!) in Kentucky.
