BJ Hoff offers another thrilling historical saga that will capture the hearts of readers everywhere.
At the entrance to the city, an Irish governess climbs into a carriage and sets out to confront the man who destroyed her sister's life--a blind musician who hears music no one else can hear ...
On a congested city street, a lonely Scot physician with a devastating secret meets a woman doctor with the capacity to heal not only the sick ... but also his heart ...
In a tumbledown shack among hundreds of others like it, an immigrant family struggles to survive, and a ragged street singer old beyond her years appoints herself an unlikely guardian ...
So begins American Anthem, a story set in 1870s New York that lets the reader step into another time to share the hopes and dreams and triumphant faith of a people you'll grow to love ... a people readers will never forget.
"An eloquently told story that weaves history, music, faith and intrigue ... an absolute pleasure." --Christian Retailing
"The story gently unfolds with intriguing characters, and the sound of music, which Hoff manages to make fly off the pages with her glorious and passionate descriptions." --Christian Library Journal
Originally published to strong sales several years ago, this new edition combines three of BJ's best novels into one saga-length volume.
Kirsty5 Stars Out Of 5February 24, 2010KirstyI LOVE this series!! The writing is just so powerful, and i can imagine everything that is happening so vivdly. I love the fact that it is 3 or 4 stories wound into one, and the auther just handles it so beautifully. My favourite story-line has to be Michael and Susanna's. I also LOVE the thing wih Frank and Mary, and Paul and Nell Grace. SO cute!! And i love the nashinalities that B.J choose; Irish, Scottish and Italin being the main ones. I would reccomend it to anyone.

All of the stories and they were wonderful. I can't tell you all of the details because it was a long time ago that I read them, but I remember finishing the first book - Prelude - and desperately wanting to read the next book - Cadence, then I finished that and I wanted badly to read the final book in the series - Jubilee. I don't normally feel that eager about reading a series so that was amazing! Each set of characters had their own struggles. From the blind musician who lost his wife and was left with a young daughter, to the Scottish physician who suffered from arthritis, and last the Irish-born Susanna, whose story is heart-breaking yet beautiful. I highly recommend this series.
