Sing (The Homeward Trilogy - Book 2)

Sing. Lisa T. Bergren. David C. Cook. April 2010.
Paperback. 384 pages.

It's four years later and Moira St. Clair is now living in Paris. She's finally living out her dream and is a very well known opera singer. When she discovers that her manager, Max Foster, has emptied her bank account and left her with nothing, she decides to leave and head back to America. While on the ship she meets Gavin Knapp and Daniel Adams. Both are attractive and seem to take interest in her. Daniel is more reserved and seems to be hiding something about himself. Gavin saw a very talented women in Moira and believed he could make her famous again. When he became her new manager she began to fall in love with him, but still had Daniel at the back of her mind. She made some foolish decisions and struggles to figure out how she'll handle the situation she found herself in.

Nic is now a boxer in Rio De Janeiro. One night when he loses a fight, he's shanghaied and forced to work off his debt by an angry ship captain. During a storm, they are shipwrecked and Nic tries to find his way back to America. He boards another ship as a crew member and is taunted by some of the other men aboard. He learns the hard way that he needs to control his temper, and a very wise man, Manuel, tries to help him see his need for God.

Back on their Colorado ranch, Odessa, Bryce, and their baby boy, Samuel, have just faced a harsh winter and lost over 50 of their prized horses. Their finances in months to come aren't the only thing they have to worry about. An old enemy comes back to claim what he feels it rightfully his and continues to seek revenge on the St. Clair siblings for getting him sent to jail. The devastation seems too hard to face, but their faith in God remains strong through it all. In the midst of pain, loss, and trials, the St. Clairs see the power of forgiveness and God's grace.

This was another great story by author, Lisa Bergren. This book would be fine as a stand alone, but I recommend you read Breathe first. I think for some, it might be a little confusing when the story jumps from one character to the other. I love how the journey each of the siblings take ultimately leads them to a God of love. They see how powerful His forgiveness is and what an important aspect it is in their lives. I had a hard time putting it down when I was close to the end of it. I really liked that the characters faith and relationship with God was mentioned a lot more in this book and you see how it grows throughout the story. Adventure, romance, mystery, and very realistic struggles fill the pages of this book and it turned out to be another enjoyable read. Now I'm moving on to Book 3, Claim.

My Rating: 4/5 stars
