Overview

Country music star Jonathan Van Castle is intent on two things--reviving his career and regaining custody of his children. At a stop in picturesque Cordelia, Missouri, he meets Lily (Lilac O'Malley Ryan), a young widow trying desperately to hold onto her livelihood and rebuild her own life after the tragic loss of her husband. Singularly unimpressed with the famous Mr. Van Castle, Lily instead falls for his two children. They, and not their sought-after dad, steal her heart, so she lets herself be convinced to join him in a marriage of convenience as he fights his custody battle. The widow and the singer eventually discover their liaison means more to them both than they'd originally planned.

Romance fans will be swept away by Ms. Corgiat's dazzling descriptions of the Missouri Ozarks and her keen insight into the landscape of the yearning heart.

Sing Me Home is part of the Love Finds A Home series. All five books, originally published by Penguin's Signet imprint to critical acclaim, are set in Cordelia, Missouri. Two were featured selections of Literary Guild, Doubleday and Rhapsody book clubs. Although the books do not need to be read in order, Sing Me Home is the first in the series.

    Terrific story...I couldn't put it down!

    This is the first time I've read a book by this author. I have the second book in the series, 'Follow Me Home'. I will read it next and wait for the remaining three I'm ordering. I'm sure the rest of this series will be as sweet, romantic and touching as this book.

    First time author hits big!!!!!

    Lilac Elizabeth O'Malley, or Lil, is a lady that has had more than her share of losses. She is a survivor seeking to overcome the death of the only man she ever loved, Robbie, her child, her brother¿ well you get the point. Lil has the kiss of misfortune planted squarely on her life. That makes her a perfect target for country and western singer, Jonathan Van Castle. Jon is a washed up performer on a comeback and comes with his own share of skeletons in the closet. Their coincidental meeting in the bookstore that Lil is packing up leads them on a relationship based partially on a need to be needed. Lil needs someone to raise her from the gloom and doom of her life while Jon needs a wife to help get custody of his two children that currently reside with their abusive mother, Belinda. Belinda is a real bad lady and the author writes the role believably great, as you will quickly love to hate her. Anyway, as Jon and Lil¿s relationship blossoms from a state of need into authentic love, the story of quickly excels into a shocking culmination as Belinda¿s trumps common sense as the custody hearing approaches. Filled with plenty of love, revulsion, ardor, idiocy and compassion lined with a trail of lies, this tale by debut author Corgiat promises us an exciting new voice in the romance world. I, for one, welcome her work, even if it means more competition.

    Heartwarming...

    Jonathan Van Castle got his first surprise when the red head with china blue eyes failed to recoginize him. As a hot country star, he was used to being sought out by fans, especially female ones. In fact, he ran into Lil Ryan's shop seeking escape. Not only does the lovely widow not know who he is, but he can see she doesn't have a very high opinion of him after hearing that he has not seen his kids for two years. ...................... On the other hand, Lil's younger sister knows exactly who Jon is, and jumps at the chance to date him, much to Lil's chagrin. To rescue her sister from a marriage of convenience designed to help Jon get custody of his children away from a neglectful mother, she agrees to what he really wanted, to marry her. Doing so gives her the funds to save her business and a family to not replace but fill in a bit of the hole in her heart left by her late husband and lost child. .................. Jon and his two children are just what Lil needs to pull her out of the grave she has lived in for three years. Yet only the children are able to admit the love blooming between all of them. Public life, high pressures, and a scheming ex wife are trying to pull Jon and Lil apart. Only love and strength of will can save what might be the best thing to happen to any of them. ........................... **** This heartwarming debut novel will renew hope in the midst of winter. People are broken in ways to fit together again. Like a country song, it's sad and happy in all the right places. ****
