Sing was a very enjoyable continuation of the Homeward Trilogy. It is book two in the series and started off a little slowly. However, the story is extremely interesting from start to finish and really took off for me about half way through the book.

I really enjoyed the way this book continued to alternate between the three St. Clair siblings. It was great to see what was happening with all of them. Moira’s story was the primary one, with Dominic and Odessa also having troubles of their own that
SUMMARY: Moira St. Clair has done exactly what her father forbade her to do: chased her dreams to sing on the stage. But even as her star rises, she becomes more vulnerable to those who wish to use her—or bring her down….

Sing is the second book in The Homeward Trilogy and a great continuation. While I didn't love it quite as much as book one, Breathe, it was still really good and had several tense moments!

I loved the characters and that all three siblings played roles in the story, even though it was technically Moira's story. The beginning was a little annoying (when it switched between characters quickly), because I wasn't yet invested in the story and that made it take a little longer for me to get captured b

Sing, Book 2 in this series, took things up a notch! These three siblings each have their own share of trouble, growth and life to live. And it is a journey you don't want to miss out on! Bergren grabbed hold of my attention early on and held it, not only that but she grabbed a hold of my emotions as well. SING is about how we are all imperfect, all hungry and seeking something or someone to fill that hunger inside, and how we can either choose to fill that hunger with what is good for us or not ...more

Second book in Lisa's Colorado series. I enjoyed it, however I really got upset with choices Moira made in her life. It was hard to see the consequences come to her, however, it worked out and created such a deep impression about these siblings. They became almost like close friends or family and of course I had to read Nic's story too. Such adventure, mystery, challenges, all with such good, good guys and such aweful bad guys. Ugh, another book that will keep you up nights.

I haven't read Breathe, Book 1 in this series so I don't know Odessa, Moira and Dominic's full story but I do know that I really enjoyed this one! I loved that it alternated between each of the St. Clair siblings so it was never boring. I would have liked to have read Book 1 first but it was still a really good story, definitely a keeper.

Full review to come in May.

This is the 2nd book in the Homeward Trilogy. Lisa T. Bergren brings together the struggles of human nature and the Grace of God and adds a little mystery and suspense into the mix. The story centers more on Moira who has always been more self centered and thinks she's in control of her life. She trusts too easily and it gets her into more trouble, she makes poor choices. In the end she realizes God loves her regardless of her mistakes. This book leaves us hanging in regards to Moira and Daniel. ...more

This is the second in the Homeward Trilogy and focuses on the youngest St. Clair sibling, Moira. However, Moira's story is interwined with her siblings' (Odessa/Dominic) storylines as well. Even though one can read this book without having read book 1, Breathe, I'd recommend reading that first. You'll get a better picture of the siblings' history, why the villain Reid hates them so much, and how Odessa and Bryce's love story began. This book begins four years after Breathe ends. Moira is living ...more

Page 260: That's the exact point where the story makes a sharp u-turn from being a solid 4 or even 5 star read to plummeting like a rock off a cliff to a sappy one star trainwreck. It seems Bergen relishes in butchering one of her best characters.

Warning one: Sing is a painful, brutal drag. A soap opera of misery from beginning to end. If you are looking for happiness and inspiration, you wont find much in these pages.

Warning 2: The book ends on a cliffhanger with several unresolved plots. To f

Dare I say it? Dare I say that Sing is even better than Breathe?? Hmm.......yes I must! Sing is BETTER than Breathe!

Book 2 in The Homeward Trilogy, Sing brings us right back into the wonderful lives of Odessa and her husband Byrce, her sister Moira, and her brother Domonik, with a few other wonderfully created characters.

This book had me hooked from the beginning. Transported back into time, again, I loved how the siblings were all in different parts of the world this time but still depended o

Book Review: Sing: A Novel of Colorado, by Lisa T. Bergren

Sing: A Novel of Colorado, by Lisa Bergren is book 2 in the Homeward Trilogy. I have not read book 1, hopefully I will find a copy soon! I do not feel that you need to read book 1 first, I guess I would like to have known what Odessa's illness was, but other than that Sing is a book that can stand on its own.

This is a book about Moira, one of the 3 St. Claire siblings. I believe that each of the 3 books is based on a

Sing by Lisa T. Bergren is the second book in the Homeward trilogy about the St. Clair siblings. Eldest sister Odessa is settling into life on a horse ranch with her husband Bryce and their new son, Samuel. Moira, the youngest, had a successful career as a singer in Paris until her manager absconded with all of her money, forcing her to make a radical change in her plans. Nic, the only son, has wasted his inheritance traveling the world and making a living as a brawler until losing a match finds ...more

This is the second book in the Homeward Trilogy. I've not read the first, but found this one great as a stand alone -- I didn't find that I was left trying to figure out where it started or ended, it read very smoothly!

Don't let the cover fool you, It's not all romance! Actually I was pleasantly surprised by the diversity in this book! I expected it to be mostly romance, but it exceeds and draws on more areas of life! Sing is about a trio of siblings that are growing through hardship. Odessa - L

Odessa St, Clair McAllan and her husband, Bryce have settled into ranch live on the Circle M ranch. Unfortunately, things are not easy. They just survived their first harsh winter and did not fair so well. They lose almost all of their stock. Bryce talks about going across seas to pick up more live stock. Odessa does not want Bryce to go as the last time he went, he almost die from something he caught while traveling.

In this second book of the Homeward Trilogy, we again visit the lives of the St. Clair siblings, two years after the events in "Breathe". Although I found this book caught my attention better than the first one, I found there were a few things that annoyed me. One of them was that although each of the siblings had come into money at the end of the first book, the author had contrived a reason for each of them to be broke at the very beginning of this one. Which, in my opinion, kind of defeated t ...more
I enjoyed the sequel to Breathe and am looking forward to the third book in the series, Claim. Bergren did a fantastic job of torturing her characters and making you care about them. The brother Nic and sister Moira messed up the worst. What I liked about this story was that Bergren pulled no punches and had them make poor choices and suffer from their mistakes. I really ached for Moira who went through quite a transformation in this novel because of the many disappointments and hurts she suffer ...more

Lisa Bergren doesn't write what you expect, that makes her writing brilliant. In book #1 of this series we meet Odessa who is struggling for every breath she takes, along with her brother Nic and her sister Moira they are heading to Colorado in hopes of finding a cure for Odessa. They find that and a whole lot more. As this book opens we find the 3 siblings spread far, far apart. Moira is kind of the main character, but we see things from Odessa and Nic's points of view as well. I love this aspe ...more

Second in the series about the St Clair siblings, this one focuses more on sister Moira, although still touches on the other two siblings, Odessa and Dominic. Poor Moira, she made some bad choices and really has a lot of bad things happen to her, I kept thinking to myself, don't do that, you know better! :) I'm going to go ahead and read the last one in this series and finish them up.

I have really enjoyed reading the Homeward Trilogy series. The book Sing is a continuation of the story of Moira St. Clair, the wayward sister of Odessa from the previous book. Although this book wasn't my favorite in the series, I did like it a lot.
3.5 stars. One of those middle books that resolve some of the first book and set up for the third book but don't actually hold their own.

I had a hard time getting invested in this book. It took me many weeks to read because I just kept putting it down and doing something else. It wasn't until I was more than half way - more like 3/4 of the way through with the book before I really got to the point where I didn't want to put it down. It was the second (I think) in a series, and I haven't read the other books so perhaps that may have made a difference.

The story was good and the characters likeable. The writing was well done. But it

Sing is No 2 in Lisa T Bergren's Homeward Trilogy, where you step back in time to the late 1880's in following two sisters and a brother as they come through disasters and challenges in their lives. I enjoyed this book a little more than the first one, Breathe. If you like historical books set in this era, filled with drama all with a Christian backgroud, you will enjoy this Novel of Colorado! I'm looking forward to reading the final in this series, Claim, to see how it all comes together....

I think I enjoyed "Breathe" (the first book in the series) more. However, "Sing" was a wonderful next book! Moira, Odessa's sister, has always loved to sing...and she's formed quite a successful business around doing it! However, she's also sacrificed some things. This story is a little heavier and harder to read (from an emotional standpoint) than "Breathe." But it was definitely worth reading, and I enjoyed it!
This book was SSOOOOO much better than Breathe! I mean, Breathe was really good too, but this book was awesome. It was tense and action packed--the suspense never let up. And nothing good ever happened to the charachters! They suffered loss after loss after loss, and it was painful to read (in a good way). I look forward to Claim!

Again, another page turner that I couldn't put down. I think I read it in two days. This one pulled you along. It's ending is definitely leaving you hanging to find out what happens to the brother in the story and to finish the tale of one of the sisters. But, it's a great read...again! Can't wait til "Claim" comes out!
