Beschreibung

Originally published to strong sales, this edition combines three of BJ’s best novels into one saga–length volume!

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

  • (5/5)
    Absolutely MAGNIFICENT.This is precisely what literature is supposed to do: live and breathe. The journey from the prologue of Book One to the epilogue of Book Three led not only to the manifestation of a wondrous sound but that of a vision as well. The vision of a blind genius, no less! Oh, I had a qualm or two on stylistic and technical notes (like, why did such an abundance of words, especially when it came to the characters’ dialogue, have to be emphasized with italics? and shouldn’t there have been some explanation or even a word about Caterina’s being nearly as articulate as a preteen at only four years old, unless I missed that detail?), but the SPIRIT of the story was unrushed, satisfying, and triumphant—miraculous without being over the top.Beautiful book cover as well, though it’s a pity Harvest House got the color of Michael Emmanuel’s eyes wrong, especially when his eyes are such a major part of the story. But, that error is ultimately of little matter.Aside from works by authors I know personally and John Nielson Had a Daughter (which may always be my favorite book for sentimental reasons), American Anthem may very well be the best piece of work I’ve read thus far by a 21st Century author. Certainly one of the greatest books I’ve ever read, period.
