This second book in the 'The Homeward Trilogy' picks up very nicely where book one, 'Breathe', left off. It is 1886 and the St. Clair siblings are each going after their dreams, but in very different parts of the world. Odessa St. Clair McAllan has learned to love her life on the Colorado ranch,

but a devastating winter has made life difficult for them. Moria St. Clair finds herself in Paris, being robbed of her money by her manager and without a job. She will find herself back in Colorado, using her voice, but is always wondering if she is doing the right thing. Dominic St. Clair is working the boxing rings of South America until he gets shanghaied by a sea captain. He will find life hard and demanding as he works his way home, fighting God all the way.

All three of these characters have struggles to overcome. Some will depend upon their God and others will fight and rebel with Him. But as someone in the book states, you can try to run from Him and fight Him, but God will continue to call you to Himself; you can't win your fight against God.

There is danger, gold to be discovered, love to be strengthened and grief and sorrow and evil in this story. But there is also a family tie that cannot be broken and a strength of character that will in the end show through. With every struggle you will cheer on this family and hope they will come through the fires, refined as gold. Looking forward to seeing how this will all come together in book 3, 'Claim'.
