1 Corinthians 13:4
West Virginia, 1869
Three years ago, Dr. Daniel Kavanagh settled down in the quaint town of Mount Laurel and established a medical practice there. The single doctor has been nursing an unrequited crush on Serena Norman, the local schoolteacher.
Just down the road lies the coal mining town of Owenduffy, considered by most in Mount Laurel to be a backwoods hamlet. When the mine company's doctor abandons his post, Daniel agrees to visit one day a week, much to the consternation of his fellow residents, including his secret love, Serena.
Addie Rose, the daughter of an Owenduffy coal miner, has a gift for caring for others. When a receptionist position in Daniel's office suddenly becomes available, what windows of opportunity will God open for Addie Rose—just a job, a possible career as a nurse, or maybe something more?
Harp on the Willow is a touching tale of true love, the kind that can only come from a Savior who first loved us.

Hoff was a new author for me, but this pretty cover was irresistible. I loved escaping into the doctor's world, and within a few pages I was anticipating a doctor-version of a Jan Karon novel. The atmosphere was intriguing and absorbing. I really loved David and Addie Rose as characters and Sarge...

I greatly appreciate the cover of this book and that it actually made it to publishing without a beautiful women grinning back at me. I've read BJ Hoff before and do not remember her flutters of romance between the characters. I enjoyed Daniel and the town and his connection to his patients but w...

I loved the feel of this story. It had the slow feel of West Virginia rural mountains in the late 1860's after the civil war. It focuses on Dr. Daniel Kavanagh MD, an Irish boy made good who has come to practice in the small town of Mt. Laurel Virginia. He soon finds himself helping the mining fa...

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I'm not sure if I liked this book or didn't like it.
First off let me start off my saying that I'm not very fond of books that talk mainly in the first person. I don't know why but I've just never liked it. As far as the storylin...
