This is the first book in the 5 book Acadia series. What a great partnership in the authors Oke, and Bunn! Great authors in their own rights. This series has everything-lost family, lost loves, war, separation, hate, 3 countries:US, Canada, and England. The historyk is awesome and alive! A time when people were torn apart by ancient hatreds. Hatreds only God could heal.

Book 1 of 3 in the Song of Acadia series. This is the first book by Oke that I have read. I really enjoyed it and I'm looking forward to finishing this series to read others by her.
I do not know very much about Canadian history so I can't say how accurate the historical background is. I do know about the God, the Bible, and prayer. This book was entertaining and very inspirational.

If you like the Love comes softly serious by Janette Oke then you will like this story. I love period stories. About two young women their lives shadowed by nations that are in conflict, but they begin a friendship that will propel them on a journey from which they will never turn back.

I am a fan of both T. Davis Bunn and Janette Oke. This one is more Oke than Bunn, I think.

The copy of this title that I have listed (Carmen McNair) is an audio book on cassette tape contrary to the other review associated with this book.

The year was 1753, and the lines of separation were firmly drawn. the French had named the region Acadia, their "beloved home". When the British came soon after, they battled with the French on the new continent as they had in Europe for centuries.

The settlers of Acadia were either French or English, and though their villages might be but a stone's throw apart, most could go an entire lifetime without speaking to someone from the other side.

And then the chance encounter in a meadow of wild flowers...The Meeting Place

The first book in Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn's Song of Acadia series. The whole series is amazing! This book chronicles the meeting and friendship of two women--one of British heritage and the other of French heritage shortly before the British expulsion of the French from Acadia. A really cool look into history from a Christian fiction perspective.

This is the story of two women who belong to two different cultures but yet have become very good friends, almost soul sisters. Fate deals them a very hard hand, and through love and faith, they are able to survive.
I had never learned about the history of this region and about the Acadians. I was glad to be able to learn it through a historical novel!

The characters are very real and are very well presented throughout the story. The plot also flows very well and the story remains interesting til the end.

From the book cover:


Two young women, their lives shadowed by nations in conflict, begin a friendship that will propel them on a journey from which they can never turn back.....
The year was 1753, and the lines of separation were firmly drawn. The French had named the region Acadia, their "beloved home." When the British came soon after, they battled with the French on the new continent as they had in Europe for centuries.
The settlers of Acadia were either French or English, and though their villages might be but a stone's throw apart, most could go an entire lifetime without speaking to someone from the other side.

I would call this a lazy read. Not a push to read on, but the story is nice. A romantic, historical story of forbidden friendship. You don't really get to the end of the story because there is a sequel, but it didn't leave me having to get the next book. I think for people really into romantic stories, they would be very happy with this...not romance as in love between a man and woman, but a charming romance between friends.

I absolutely loved this book. I read all the sequels including the ones that T. Davis Bunn wrote with his wife showing future generations of these characters.

I ENJOY READING ALL OF JANETTE OKE'S BOOKS BECAUSE OF THE CLEANLIENESS OF THE STORIES. THERE ARE NO SEX BEFORE MARRIAGE WRITINGS AND NO VOLGAR LANGUAGE......JUST THE SORT OF READING I LIKE FOR MY 15 YEAR-OLD GRANDDAUGHTER.

This is an outstanding story of Historical Christian fiction. Two young women In Arcadia, Canada, An English woman Catherine and a French woman Louise become friends. Both are Protestant Bible reading Christians. Both accept their friendship as a gift of God.Neither realize the consequences of that friendship when the French are driven out of Arcadia. The French are driven out for refusing to bear arms and stripped of land and anything that they can not carry in their hands. Both women lose someone thing that means the most to them. They only have their faith in God to comfort them.

Mankind left to their own devices are totally evil.Only in God can we overcome this evil. Not only are two nationalities of people broken, but two families suffer individually as well. A superb story told by the authors as spun out from history.
