In B.J. Hoff's book, Song of the Silent Harp, a widow named Nora Kavanagh must learn to endure many of life’s trials. The story is set in Ireland in the mid-1800's during the Irish Potato Famine when starvation and death were widespread. Nora suffers from terrible losses, such as the death of her husband and child, which makes her struggle with her faith in God.

This book has minimal dialogue and too much general narration. There are only a few exciting scenes with adventurous escapes or attempts at rekindling dying love. There is intriguing conflict when a man who yearns to win Nora's heart, Morgan Fitzgerald, is torn between her and his duty to serve Ireland. But this suspense is tamped down by the lengthy narration, making the story start to drag.

Nora is trapped between starvation and eviction as her family gets sicker. Her mysterious friend Morgan sacrifices what he has for what's left of Nora's family. At one point, Nora must make a hard decision either to stay in Ireland and starve or to start a new, strange life in America, leaving Morgan behind.

Nora is a sorrowful woman with a painful past. Her character hardly changes throughout the story, which is depressing. Fortunately, the other characters give the story more dimensions, from kindhearted men to harsh, conniving landlords.

Whereas this story's idea is clever, its execution is poor. The narration is long-winded and the story is not gripping. I didn't feel strongly connected to the characters at any point. There are also unnecessary hints of adult content such as: drugs, child prostitution, and child molestation. This book is targeted for adults who like historical fiction, but I cannot give this book a high recommendation. – Molly Anderson,
