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.

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.

By A. Merritt on 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!
