A Distant Music by B. J. Hoff

In the first book of the Mountain Song Legacy series readers step into a small Kentucky coal mining town in the late 1800’s where hope is found in the hearts of two young girls—the vibrant, red–headed Maggie MacAuley and her fragile friend Summer Rankin.

When Jonathan Stuart, the latest in a succession of educators, actually wants to continue teaching in the one–room schoolhouse, then Maggie and Summer know that he is special. So when Jonathan’s cherished flute is stolen, the girls try to find a way to restore music to his life.

Sorrow and joy follow in the days to come, and through it all Maggie, Jonathan, and a community rediscover the gifts of faith, friendship, and unwavering love.

I have read Amercian Anthem and Song of Erin series. I loved both of those. I decided to read this book and the entire series. I will not contine. This book seemed to drag on and didn't seem to have character development that are present in her other books.

A Distant Music is another captivating book by author B.J. Hoff. Mrs. Hoff has the ability to create such believable characters that you feel like you know them as friends when you close the book¿s final page. It¿s been over a year since I finished reading the third book in Mrs. Hoff¿s American Anthem trilogy, and yet I can still see the blind conductor Michael in my mind¿s eye. That same character realism is true for the teacher Jonathan Stuart and students Maggie MacAuley and Kenny Tallman in Mrs. Hoff¿s newest book, A Distant Music. This story is a touching reminder of how hard life was in another era for a struggling mining town. A tale where hardship breeds a desperation that nearly steals all beauty and hope from those caught in its grip, but where miracles still happen, spurred on by the undying faith of children. A Distant Music holds such wonderful prose and such realistic descriptions that I felt I was there. A page-turning, enjoyable read. I am definitely looking forward to the next book in The Mountaint Song Legacy series.
