From Library Journal
This historical novel is the sequel to The Meeting Place by best-selling authors Oke and Bunn. The plot follows Anne Harrow and Nicole Robichaud, whose families voluntarily switched them at birth (read the first novel to find out why) and then lost touch with each other when the Acadian Robichauds were forced out of Nova Scotia by British edict. Now grown, the girls learn about their "real" parents, and a shaken Nicole (born Anne) embarks on a desperate search to find the Harrows and reaffirm her belief in herself with God's help. At the same time, Lord Charles Harrow, Nicole's uncle, arrives in Nova Scotia to end the estrangement with his brother, now a minister, and name his niece Anne (now Nicole) as his heir. Unfortunately, shallow characterizations and miraculous resolutions mar the plot, but the strength of the authors' popularity will fuel demand. Purchase accordingly.

A native North Carolinian who now lives abroad, T. DAVIS BUNN was recognized internationally as a consultant, lecturer, and speaker in the area of international finance and received invitations to address symposiums, conferences, and management meetings. His professional interests took a decided turn nearly eighteen years ago. Although he continued his career in international finance, he became a "closet" novelist. For nine years, he wrote with discipline and drive, never to have anything published. When one of his novels came to the attention of Bethany House Publishers, his status as an unpublished novelist changed. His first book, The Presence, was published in 1990 and quickly became a bestseller.
A prolific writer, he now has over twenty books in publication, including three with Janette Oke, a wonderful children's picture book called Princess Bella and the Red Velvet Hat, the heartwarming gift book The Quilt, and his latest, The Dream Voyagers, originally published under the pen name Thomas Locke.
"The novels I've had published by Bethany House are the direction I hope my future writing will take--captivating stories of intrigue, drama and faith, with compelling characters in an enjoyable contemporary fictional setting," says Bunn. "The emotional bonding that occurs with the reader in good fiction often gives the Christian message more direct meaning in the reader's life."
Prior to his work in international finance, Davis completed studies in psychology and economics at Wake Forest University. Fluent in three languages, he has traveled extensively in more than forty countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, and the Middle East. Davis has also avocationally become a serious student of comparative religion, learning from Jewish rabbis, Buddhist monks, Muslim imams, Catholic priests, and Baptist ministers. Drawing on these experiences, Davis fills his books with colorful dialogue and richly textured settings.
