It is 1886, and the St. Clairs are living out their dreams in three very separate parts of the worldParis, Brazil and Colorado. And while each has found a measure of success and joy, each is haunted by past sins and secrets.

Lisa T. Bergren is the best-selling, award-winning author of over thirty books, with more than 1.5 million copies sold. A former publishing executive, she now splits her time working as a freelance editor and business consultant and parenting her three young children with husband Tim. She lives in Colorado Springs.
Bergren, author of more than 30 books, brings back the fictional St. Clair family siblings in this second installment in her Homeward Trilogy. Bergren deftly transitions among the separate stories of Odessa, Moira, and Dominic, before intertwining two of their paths. Odessa and husband Bryce struggle with fierce snowstorms that take the lives of many of their finest horses, and Bryce's brother Robert, come to help smooth out matters, only complicates them. Moira, swindled out of her money, travels back to the States and meets not one but two intriguing men en route home. Both take a strong interest in this singer, but only one has her best interest at heart. Dominic, the brawler, is taken captive on a sailing vessel and spends the bulk of the book fighting his way back to freedom. These three distinct storylines could very well be disjointed in the hands of a lesser writer, but Bergren makes it work seamlessly. (Apr.)
