The new, colossal saga that
follows the lives and loves and dreams of those who might have been
our ancestors. From the crowded tenements of nineteenth-century New
York City to the opulent mansions of the Hudson River Valley,
Prelude is populated by an unforgettable cast, including a blind
musician; a self-sacrificing physician; a struggling immigrant family;
a runaway orphan and her unlikely friend; famous hymn writer, Fanny
Crosby; and passionate evangelist, D. L. Moody. Here is a spirited
story of romance, faith, and survival—a story that lets you step into
another time and live there with people you’ll never forget, people
you will grow to love. A story to make your heart sing, told in
classic B.J. Hoff style.
“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
