The St. Clair family is scattered in three different parts of the world: Paris, Brazil, and Colorado.

Odessa St. Clair McAllan lives in Colorado on a beautiful ranch, with her husband and new son. But a brutal blizzard brings unexpected devastation. In Paris, Moira St. Clair learns that her long trusted manager has been robbing her, and now she has no options. And Dominic St. Clair works in the boxing rings in Brazil, but he loses the wrong fight and son finds himself shanghaied by a frustrated sea captain.

Will the three of them manage to survive their devastating losses and escape a past menace determined to destroy them?

SING is the second book in The Homeward Trilogy by Ms. Bergren. Other than Ms. Bergren’s children’s books, I haven’t read any of her fiction since she first began as a writer with delightful romances.

SING is more of a historical women’s fiction, and being new to the series, I was quite lost as it began. I didn’t know who any of these characters were or how they got to where they were. It also jumped from one character to another, jarring me out of the story just as soon as I began to get grounded. As a result, it took awhile for me to get into this book. I cared most about Odessa’s story, maybe because she was the one I could most relate to. An interview with Ms. Bergren and discussion questions are included at the end of the book. $14.99. 400 pages.
