Dawn of the Golden Promise...Review
With passion and power, gifted novelist B.J. Hoff ignites the pages in this eagerly awaited fifth book of the Emerald Ballad saga, weaving a spellbinding tale of courageous individuals on both sides of the Atlantic those who left their homeland of Ireland to make a new life in America, and those who remained behind, anchored to the terrible beauty and mystery of the Emerald Isle:
Morgan Fitzgerald, confined to a wheelchair because of an assailant's bullet to his spine. Now he must confront the ultimate challenge to his faith a choice that could cost him everything the woman he loves, his family, even his life.
His wife Finola, facing her own moment of truth the hidden memories and dark secrets of her past that could well destroy her-unless she can find the strength to face them.
Michael Burke, a New York City cop caught in the conflict between his faith and his obsession with bringing Patrick Walsh to justice.
These and other unforgettable characters will captivate your heart and inspire your spirit with their faithfulness, their endurance-their reality.
Wow. What a fantastic ending to a fabulous series. I have loved the roller coaster that is the Emerald Ballad series. As these characters find answers, they also discover strengths previously unknown. More importantly, as they each recognize the path God has chosen for them, they discover that he will not leave them alone as they travel it.
With drama and sorrow, with faith and hope, and with Christmas miracles, everyone's stories come together at the end.
