Book Description

July 2003 Thorndike Press Large Print Inspirational Series
"Anne's sorrow over her husband's death has been eased by the unexpected discovery of his heritage in the Harrow
family and by her marriage to a brilliant young theologian. But Nicole is as restless as ever and has decided to retutn to North America. Should she go to the Acadian family of her childhood in Louisiana's bayous? Or should she settle in Nova Scotia near her birth parents? The American colonies are in revolt against England, and Uncle Charles asks her to go to Massachusetts to oversee his extensive landholdings. The attentions of the ship's captain during the crossing touch a yearning deep within her, but she also realizes all her loyalties are about to be tested. Is she French? Is she English? Is she a supporter of the American cause? Nicole's unique legacy will allow her to play an extraordinary role in the unfolding historic events, but will she be able to find a home for her heart?"

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth Reading March 26 2002
Format:Paperback
This book was very good. It just came yesterday and I finished it today. I was happy to discover that there will be a 5th book as there are many questions left unanswered. I enjoyed the book but I did wish that things had happened differently for the characters. Of course, that's what makes it more like real life, things don't always go smoothly. I am pleased with the way the charachter Nicole has turned out and that we were able to at least visit with some of the other characters. I would have liked to have read something of the Acadian parents though. I am pleased that I bought this book now instead of waiting for it to come out used.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but not the best in the series June 14 2002
Format:Paperback
So far, I have enjoyed this series very much. However, I thought that book 3 was the best so far. This book is the story of Nicole, more than anyone else, trying to find her place in the world. It is filled with faith, daring, adventure and love. She comes to realize that she must hold firm to her convictions of right and wrong in order to live a happy and successful life. Gordon comes to realize what it is Nicole requires in order to admit her love for him.
Throughout it all, the relationship between family members is strengthened and enriched by the love they share for one another. I am looking forward to book 5 this fall.

Format:Paperback
Book four in Jannette Oke and T. Davis Bunn's "Song of Arcadia" historical fiction saga, The Distant Beacon is set amid the war for American Independence, as two women find themselves swept into different lives - one in Great Britian, the other setting sail for the American colonies. Filled with passionate romance, betrayal, and a revolution that will change the world, The Distant Beacon is a compelling novel that sweeps the reader away with its heartfelt emotion. Also highly recommended are the early volumes of the "Song Of Arcadia" series: The Meeting Place; The Sacred Shore; and The Birthright.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great book! Feb. 3 2003
Format:Paperback
While Anne settles in England, Nicole sets off to oversee her Uncle Charles's property in Massachusetts. Gordon Goodwin acts as her guide as she first visits her parents, then traverses towards Massachusetts. War and devastation lie in her way.
As Nicole travels, she wonders if she will ever truly find a home, and if she will ever find the right man's love.
Messages of courageous faith, forgiveness, and love are woven into this book. I won't give away the exciting twists and turns, but I will say that I loved this riveting and well-written book!
