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.
Q: I'm looking for a book in the Riverhaven series #3 mentioned at the end of the 2nd book. Please let me know when the 3rd book in the riverhaven series called Gideon's hope will be released. This book was mentioned at the end of her 2nd book. We've been wanting to order this book. Thanks Dianne
BJ Hoff is expecting to finish "River of Mercy" (the third book in "The Riverhaven Years"), in the Spring of 2011.
