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.
Once you read this book, you must continue with the sequel: "The Sacred Shore".

The Meeting Place had an interesting angle. The last 100 pages kept me going and I am VERY glad I pressed through to finish. However, it was extremely hard to get interested in for the first half of the book. The events were slow in taking place. This is made up for, though, from the "baby switch" to the end of the book. It got my interest up enough to want to read the sequel...but it took 150 pages before I could commit to that.

Haven't finished reading this yet but interesting from both a historical and romance perspective. This look into the lives of both English and French inhabitants of Acadia is easy to read and informative.
