From the Back Cover
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?

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.

So for all of you who have ever messed up, who have ever wondered when will I get things right, can I be loved, forgiven... well this is a story for you. You can never fall too far to be reached, loved, redeemed, forgiven and embraced by the grace of God. This story has punch to it. Bergren has written real and deep characters, characters that feel very alive and who can and do, many times mess up. Moira and Nic certainly know how to run, fall, and sink down in the pit; but what you the reader want to see, and what pushes you on is the hope to see them get up and walk! I cannot wait to see what Bergren has in store for them (and for us) in Book 3!
I found the book interesting, and I love it that each of these books has a good ending, but I had a difficult time liking Moria to begin with. She was always my least favorite of the St. Clairs. However, I am glad I read this one, and I look forward to the final book in the series.
