Book Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars SING by Lisa T. Bergren May 19, 2010
Format:Paperback
Don't you just love to read a "fun fiction" book and realize that you're actually learning? In the story of SING, the three St. Claire siblings are each in a different part of the world. Each has an adventure but circumstances cause all three to seek the shelter of the ranch in Colorado. As the old saying goes, "There's no place like home." And that is exactly where each sibling feels he needs to be. Feeling desperate but not without hope all three seeks a way to return to Colorado. The journey of Moira, as well as, Nic (Dominic) is a well plotted story. Adventure, cunning, and hope bring a fresh feel that as a christian we can SING in the midst of our trials! Truly an enjoyable read! Learning about Colorado and traveling to Paris and Brazil was an added bonus! This is a five star read for my book case! Anticipating the next novel, CLAIM, due out June 1!

4.0 out of 5 stars Sibling Adventures Around the Globe June 17, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The latest book on my `read' list is `Sing: A Novel of Colorado' by Lisa T. Bergren, Book 2 of the `Homeward Trilogy' series.

Here is the synopsis of this novel:

Will they discover what it means to sing praises to God, even in the midst of loss? It's 1886, and the St. Clairs are living out their dreams in three very different 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.
Odessa St. Clair McAllan has adapted well to life on her beautiful Colorado ranch, but nothing has prepared her for the devastation that the winter of 1886 brings. Far away in Paris, Moira St. Clair discovers she has been robbed by her manager and has fewer options than she imagined. Meanwhile, Dominic, working the boxing rings of South America, loses the wrong fight and ends up shanghaied by a frustrated sea captain. Can all three manage to find their way back to a reunion in Colorado...especially while haunted by a former menace who reemerges, bent on bringing each of them down!

Here is the biography of the author:

Lisa Tawn Bergren ([...]) is the best-selling author, award-winning author of over thirty books, with more than 1.5 million copies sold. Lisa's ([...]) time is split between managing home base, writing (including a fair amount of travel writing), consulting and freelance editing (with a little speaking here and there). She just finished writing a Colorado historical trilogy (Breathe, Sing and Claim), and has begun a teen series called River of Time (Waterfall, book 1, comes out in February 2011). She's married to Tim, a liturgical sculptor, graphic designer and musician. They have three kids-Olivia (15), Emma (12) and Jack (7).

2.0 out of 5 stars Painful March 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
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 find out what happens you have to read book 3 for 400 more pages of misery, suffering, and despair. I will not be reading Claim.

Warning 3: Content. Don't let the Christian publishing house fool you. Sing contains many violent and graphic scenes. Assaults, shootings, drownings, burnings, ship wrecks, and beatings infuse the novel with enough content to rival an R rated movie. Oh and let's not forget about the sex, sex, and more sex. Though the author rightfully portrays immoral relationships negatively, the reader is still forced to stomach various seduction scenes, pillow talk between unwed characters, references to undergarments, prostitutes, and show girls, and a disturbing scene between a married woman and her brother-in-law.

Spoiler: What makes this novel the more painful is that the beautiful, spirited young protagonist is reduced to a haggard, disfigured baby mama, with an irreparable reputation and demolished dreams. Yeah, so much for inpirational. Sure the character makes mistakes and has many character flaws, but to diminish her to an undesirable, unlovable nothing seems almost sadistic and unfair.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better than "Breathe" June 1, 2012
Format:Paperback
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 the purpose for that plot twist.

"Sing" focuses on Moira. She has found success in her opera career, but when her manager runs off with all of her money she must come up with a new plan. On the voyage from Europe back to America she meets two gentlemen: dashing Gavin and reserved Daniel. Gavin convinces her to give him a chance to direct her career in new bold and daring ways. Caught along in the flood of excitement and tastes of the forbidden, Moira takes up a stage name and dives in.

Things are going rough for Odessa and her husband on the ranch. A hard winter has left them crippled and hurting. Torn over the right solution, both Odessa and her husband suffer from a bit of depression. Bryce is defensive when his brother arrives from the East to look over their accounts and offer advice. Odessa wants to be friendly and welcome this new family member, but is dismayed when it seems he may have more than a brotherly interest in her.

Nic is still in the boxing ring, though he has now migrated down to South America. When a sea captain loses money from betting on Nic, he decides that it is within his right to conscript Nic onto his ship. Finding himself shanghaied, Nic is miserable, desperate, and on the outs with the rest of the crew.
