I loved reading the third book in the Mountain Song Legacy series that I am looking forward to reading book 2. I love reading novels. They are the kinds of books that are very inspiring and they draw you into the story.
There's an old gospel song titled "Peace In the Valley." BJ Hoff's latest book puts me in mind of that song. The Wind Harp does not depend upon "sensationalism" to create its moving story; like a cup of ice-cold water on a hot summer day, or sitting under a big old tree by a gently running stream, The Wind Harp draws the reader in to sit for a spell. They are refreshed, and never want to leave. As always, BJ's hallmark characterization is supplemented by her skilled depiction of both the light and dark sides of life, presented with a beautiful simplicity that made my heart sing along with the story. If you're after a book that leaves you feeling good about life, or feeling hope about life regardless of circumstances, or just feeling refreshed after reading a wonderful story--don't miss The Wind Harp.
In THE WIND HARP, this sequel to A DISTANT MUSIC, author B.J. Hoff takes the story of Jonathan Stuart and Maggie MacAuley a step further, delving deeper into their character and crafting a tale that is truly compelling. These characters, which come to life in book one, take on a new dimension in book two, pulling the reader into Jonathans and Maggies worst fears and deepest dreams. A different take on an age old love story, Mrs. Hoff, shows us that the old adage is true good things come to those who wait. I love the way Mrs. Hoff draws me into each characters hopes and dreams, while weaving in enough mystery and drama to keep me turning pages. Not many books keep me thinking about them long after I set the book down, but Mrs. Hoff has such a wonderful way of bringing the characters to life on each page, that I feel like I know them like they have become dear friends. Even the cover art on this book begs a romance. I found myself snatching a page here and there every chance I got. I cant wait to finish the saga with book three. I only wish we didnt have to wait six months for it to come out!
BJ Hoff has done it again! I loved the story of the grown up Maggie back in her home town. I loved the addition of several new characters--especially the dog :-) I can't wait for the next one so I can hear more about Eva Grace!! Bravo once again on an awesome story.
