Sing My Name is not the typical rubber stamp romance novel, hallelujah! Ms. O'Connell winds her way through this historical western romance with elements of passion, tragedy, survival, love, revenge, mystery, and yes, a happily ever after. For those readers who are familiar with another O'Connell book, Eyes of Silver, Eyes of Gold, you will enjoy this journey just as much. And that's what Ellen O'Connell's books are, a journey of life. While many novels make a mad dash for the finish line and rush through one predictable plot after another, Ms. O'Connell's pace you through an even flow of events leading up to the sunset ending. Don't get me wrong, there is plenty of action in Sing My Name, it's just interwoven with finer details that enhance the depth of involvement she gives her main and supporting characters.

I fell in love with Matt from the beginning. His strength and character come from the ability to control his alpha male self and handle situations without high handed fist waving and chest pounding. He endures traumatic events and comes out stronger without bitterness, and as bad as some of the tragedies are it is a true testament to his character. His way of handling Sarah's emotions is at times humorous and other times tender and touching. When I reached the chapter (at 2am) titled "Matt solves Sarah's problem at work with a coffee pot", I laughed so hard I woke up my husband.

Sarah is a bit on the timid side but she is no doormat. She has a gentle strength that is both charming and realistic. She falls in line with what I would expect from a woman during that era but has the sense to take care of herself and her responsibility when her own tragedies strike.

I'm sorry. "Sing My Name" is, in lots of ways, a terrific book, but it could have been better. Ellen O'Connell needs a good editor. I finished it last night, and although I liked it a lot, there were major problems with it, IMO.

SPOILERS SPOILERS SPOILERS

What I liked:

1. Matt, the hero, is extremely well drawn and very likable. O'Connell did an excellent job in showing his change from a young man who hasn't seen much of the world to a mature hero. He is so likable, so charming, so funny, so self-deprecating.

2. Sarah, the heroine, also grows very believably from a sheltered Easterner who ends up fleeing Comanche Indians to a self-sufficient, capable woman. She's Matt's equal in likability and integrity.

3. The plot, especially in the first third of the book, is one that captured me immediately. When I read about couples in dire circumstances "on the road,
I always wonder, being literal minded sometimes, about menstruation and "bathroom breaks," and for once, an author includes them, without being crude or disgusting.

4. The sex between h&h. Because Matt is sexually ignorant, which I found very, very believable, given his age, education, and most importantly, the times, he is quick and uncontrolled in his introduction of Sarah to sex. He, however, is appalled that he inflicted pain on her, but eventually, these two virgins (he is essentially one) become true lovers because of their ability to talk with each other. I can't remember reading such a realistic scenario before in a romance.

After reading Ms. O'Connell's book, Eyes of Silver, I thought she would never be able to create another storyline that would equal it. But with Sing My Name, she has done just that. Sing My Name captures you from the first chapter with characters that will stay with you long after you finish that last page.

If you are a true Western romance fan, you have to read this book. Few authors ever evoke the depth of emotion Ms. O'Connell has created in her hero/heroine. This is a book that will once again, leave you anxiously awaiting another O'Connell hit!

I enjoyed Ellen O'Connell's second novel thoroughly and highly recommend it. Those who loved Eyes of Silver, Eyes of Gold will find the same kind of rich characterization and well developed romance that set her first novel apart from the usual run of romance novels. Matt and Sarah are VERY different characters caught in situations far removed from the couple in EOS/EOG, but their story is comparably complex and nuanced.

O'Connell has set herself the difficult task of developing a relationship between a Yankee from an abolitionist family and a former rebel soldier. The challenges that these two characters face as they set off across deserted territory while avoiding Commanches lead them not only to fall in love with each other but also to discover just how far each is willing to go to protect the other once they re-enter "regular" society. The rest of the novel develops their stories, both separately and finally together when they find themselves in the same town.

O'Connell devotes the central section to the difficulties and growth that the lovers experience while apart, a daring narrative choice that may surprise fans of her first novel which focused closely on Anne and Cord's life together and alternated their distinct viewpoints. Though the engaging doubled perspectives of the two lovers remain, the novel's unconventional structure enables O'Connell to explore the very different consequences Matt and Sarah experience as a result of their love for one another in face of brutal social opposition, embodied most fully in her vengeful ex-fiancee. As a result, both Matt and Sarah grow and mature throughout the novel in ways that are simultaneously unexpected and believable.

Beyond the endearing lovers, I found O'Connell's characterizations of Matt's associates, of the overly solicitous members of the ranch community, and of the children in the novel very effective.
