Review: Sing by Lisa T. Bergren


About the book:
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….

It is 1886, and the St. Clairs are living out their dreams in three very separate parts of the world—Paris, Brazil and Colorado. And while each has found a measure of success and joy, each is haunted by past sins and secrets.

Once home in Colorado, the St. Clairs struggle to learn what it means to sing praise to God—even in the face of tremendous loss—and trust Him in all things, even when forced to fight for their very lives.

My thoughts:

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 by the story.

The ending leaves me anxious to finish the trilogy, as I cannot wait to see what happens with Nic! There are some more mature elements in this story (characters engage in premarital sex, although not actually occurring in the story, you know that's what was happening). It was all done tactfully and it didn't bother me at all, but I still wanted to mention it for parents to know.

All in all, a great read and I recommend it if you enjoy historicals! I don't think you have to read book one first, but it would give you a better appreciation for what the characters (especially Odessa) went through.
