Interesting weaving in and our of Nic and Moira's lives. Nice placement of Odessa as the stabilizing factor representing "home" for both of them. Felt Gavin's parents needed to be addressed with some closure.
I just finished the Homeward Trilogy. Again you have captured me in the first book in a series I would not normally read! A truly beautiful story, excellantly spun and entwined with faith, family, forgiveness and love! Thanks you, Lisa, for another incredible series!
Out of the two books I read in this trilogy, this one was my favorite. Nic is traveling through a town after getting off the ship and is taken by surprise by a young boy who captures his attention. When his father offers him a job in his mine, he turns it down, but cannot stop thinking about it. A trip to the father's home sets in motion a curious motion of events...leaving him the child's guardian and owner of a mine he did not want. It also leaves him in alot of danger...both of romance and from evil men wanting the mine. Moira is also in her own set of dangers...not wanting to let Daniel love her, she flees to what she thinks are loving grandparents of her unborn child...will she encounter love or danger while fleeing from someone who truly loves her?This book is full of twists and turns and enough danger to keep you on the edge of your seat. I really enjoyed this one...in spite of not having read the first book, the taste I got in the second book helped me to know the characters. However, you should start at the beginning of this trilogy to enjoy it.
In Claim, Dominic arrives in Colorado, dead broke. He relinquished his anger but is still not at peace. Meanwhile, Moira is living with Odessa, and tries to recover after being severely burned in a fire. Both Moira and Dominic come to terms with the past -- and present --in order to face their future and understand how much God loves them. If you haven't read SING or BREATHE, read them first -- you are in for a treat. Recommended for adults and high school teens.
