great book! You instantly fall in love with the characters! You get swept away in the story. A story about God's love and forgiveness!

Historical Fiction and the author has done her research.
Bits of this one I liked, and bits I didn't. Not my favorite by the author, but not bad, either. I would warn others that it does deal with a lot of tough subjects, though. It shows a side of immigrant life that is decidedly not pretty, although realistic.

One of my favorite books written by BJ Hoff. Lived the characters and story line. Didn't want the story to end!
First---I really enjoyed the book. The reason why I rated it with one star is because part of the book was completely missing. From page 36?? something to 45? something there was a repeated section of the book instead of the actual correct chapters. It's agood thing this was a library book and I didn't have to pay for it! But it was good though I didn't get the whole story. I could glean what happened in the missing 50-100 pages.

This book by BJ Hoff is set in an entirely different setting and has nothing that grabbed me in the first 5 pages so it is being shelved and returned to the library. I have learned that if it is hard to get me interested then I won't enjoy the book. I read for relaxation and to enjoy. So this will be marked as read but I barely started the book. Others might like it just not for me.
I really enjoyed this book, but have mixed feelings about it. I liked the Samantha/Jack storyline better than the Brady/Ireland storyline, although I did begin to enjoy Gabriel and Roweena more in the second book. Since this is like two books put into one, I definitely liked the second book better than the first and it kept my interest more than the first as well.
The endings of books can really drive me crazy! You have 300 or more pages building up a climax to resolve in less than 10 pages?!? That is my only complaint with this book - a lot of character and climaxing building to be resolved much to quickly and not in a sufficient manner in my opinion. Otherwise this book would have been 4 stars.
I read this in three days one summer in middle school. I was up at a camp with my parents, and despite all the fun activities there were to engage myself in, I literally couldn't put this book down. One I would definitely recommend reading, especially if the person has a good amount of time to dedicate to it.
I love tales of emigration from Ireland. Both my grandparents emigrated in the early 1920's. This was one I couldn't put down. May be a little heavy on the christian fiction side for some, but a lovely story.
Love stories of the Irish. Started out slow but got better. Was sad the ending wrapped up in two pages. But overall, a good summer read
not as good as the other B.J Hoff series I've read, but still a fun read.I really detest Brady!! But I guess that's the point.

This is actually 2 novels published in one volume. They were originally published separately. Very good!
