On My Nightstand - Song of the Silent Harp by B. J. Hoff
B. J. Hoff transports the reader to Ireland during the mid-1800's Potato Famine. We huddle with the Kavanaugh family next to a fireplace, listening as death slips through the door. Heartless landlords hasten the grim reaper's progress through the small town. The only hope they have is embodied in Morgan Fitzgerald, whose wild ways and political activities keep him teetering on the edge of disaster.
The tale was riveting, the tension almost unbearable, and the hope for a happy outcome so strong I couldn't put the book down. If you enjoy historical fiction, Song of The Silent Harp is your cup of tea.
