Overview

The mysteries of the past confront the secrets of the present in bestselling author BJ Hoff’s magnificent Song of Erin saga.

In her own unique style, Hoff spins a panoramic story that crosses the ocean from Ireland to America, featuring two of her most memorable characters. In this tale of struggle and love and uncompromising faith, Jack Kane, the always charming but sometimes ruthless titan of New York’s most powerful publishing empire, is torn between the conflict of his own heart and the grace and light of Samantha Harte, the woman he loves, whose own troubled past continues to haunt her.

Originally published to strong sales nearly a decade ago, this new edition combines two of BJ’s best novels into one saga–length volume.

“The Song of Erin contains some of my favorite characters. This story—and its people—hold a very special place in my heart.” BJ Hoff

BJ Hoff comes through again -- great story lines, active and interesting characters, enjoyable beach or rainy day reading! Get lost in a world that must be left behind too quickly.

The other night I finished reading what is probably the best historical novel I've read yet this year. 'The story features two of the author's most memorable characters: Jack Kane, the charming but ruthless titan of New York¿s most powerful publishing empire, who battles the darkness of his soul while fighting to help his people. And Samantha Harte, the woman he loves, whose grace, light, and well-bred exterior conceals a past too shocking to reveal.' It honestly takes a lot for me to get this excited about a book. And it is a rare book that literally will not let me go, that makes it hard for me to turn off the light at night, that holds me captive turning pages so that I justify laying around reading for hours and hours a day! (I may want to do that sometimes, but I usually won't let myself give in to the pleasure.) Unless I am holding an amazing book! SONG OF ERIN is that book! Even if you don't think you like historical fiction or don't have a fascination with Ireland, you still need to read this book! It is fascinating! B.J. Hoff is a master of character development, and I promise you - you will know these characters well by the time you are finished and the ending is wholly satisfying - I absolutely LOVED this story!

Song of Erin is two books for the price of one. Cloth of Heaven was originally published in 1997 the sequel, Ashes and Lace, followed in 1999. Song of Erin combines those two stories into one book. This brilliant account begins in the early 1800¿s. Erin¿s father and brother have migrated to America. They plan to make enough money to reunite their family in their adopted land. Hoff shares the poverty and hardships that faced the Irish in that era. Many migrated looking for a better life, but prejudice against Irish immigrants was widespread. Cloth of Heaven leaves the reader wanting to know more Ashes and Lace ties up the loose threads. Song of Erin is a beautiful saga. BJ Hoff never disappoints readers. The plot flows smoothly. The characters are well-defined with distinct voices. Song of Erin is a Christian romance with a message of redemption. Song of Erin is entertaining. I highly recommend Song of Erin.
