Synopsis

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.
