Hoff (Vow of Silence, Tyndale, 1997) introduces a plethora of intriguing characters in this new series focusing on the lives of the Irish and Irish Americans in the early 1800s. Alone and poor in Ireland, Terese Sheridan hopes to join her brother Cavan in America. Unfortunately, he isn't doing so well either in a prejudiced America that keeps Irish immigrants from obtaining decent jobs. His prospects begin to look up, however, when another Irish immigrant, Jack Kane, hires Cavan. Meanwhile, Jack sends his wastrel brother Brady to Ireland to report on conditions there. Brady meets Terese and, not knowing her relationship to Cavan, begins to romance her. Back home, Jack falls in love with Samantha Harte, a widow with a troubled past. Unfortunately, none of the plot threads, including the characters' doubts of God's existence, are tied up, leaving the reader feeling a bit cheated. However, this is a solid introduction to a series featuring always popular Irish characters and settings. Purchase based on demand.
