A novel by

 
 
In famine-ravaged Ireland, the revered poet-patriot Morgan Fitzgerald, himself brought down by a gunman's bullet, seeks to restore his ruined life and bring hope to the next generation. With the help of his mysterious West Indies companion, Sandemon, Morgan establishes a school at Nelson Hall and provides a home for the "fey Belfast orphan," Annie Delaney, and the beautiful, mute "Innocent," Finola. But when violence and tragedy strike, Morgan finds himself locked in battle with the powers of darkness for his own future and the future of those he loves.

On the other side of the ocean, Morgan's friends Michael and Nora discover that the Land of Opportunity teems with poverty, political corruption and racial tension. From the opulence of Fifth Avenue to the squalor of the slum at Five Points, the city of New York staggers under the injustice and degradation brought on by organized crime and the exploitation of the flood of immigrants pouring into the nation. Unaware that his own son Tierney has been lured into the nefarious schemes of Patrick Walsh, Michael vows to bring Walsh to ruin and may bring down Tierney in the process.

In Land of a Thousand Dreams, award-winning author B.J. Hoff continues to spin the unforgettable drama of Ireland's battle to survive both on the Emerald Isle and in the streets of the New World. Their faith is strong, but will the dreams of a better life prevail?
