The second book in the Homeward
trilogy starts up where the first book, Breathe, left off. The characters are well written, and they all face challenges to reclaim their true selves and fulfill their dreams.
It's 1886 and the St. Clair siblings are in very different parts of the world. Odessa St. Clair McAllan and her husband have finally gotten over their illnesses. But another Colorado winter could ruin everything. Moria St. Clair has had a successful run as an opera singer in Paris, but when her manager steals her money, she has few options. Dominic St. Clair has been a successful boxer in South America, but he's shanghaied by a sea captain after he loses a fight. The three siblings fight to have a happy reunion before a menace from their past eliminates each one of them. (DAVID C. COOK, Apr., 400 pp., $14.99)
