Ok, not to give anything away, but I've got to have this figured out for me. I've missed something. In the first book The Meeting Place Louise's name is Louise Belleveau, daughter of Jacques Belleveau, with two brothers Eli and Philippi. Now it the last book Nicole delares her mothers name to be Celeste Louise Evangeline Brassard, before marrying Henri Robichaud, and the letter from Charles states that (Celeste) Louise's mother had three children and only one lived to adulthood being Louise herself. Did I miss something? Information on her mother dieing seems to be know before the deportment of the Acadians according to the Charles' investigation, though her mother was on the boat with her which is when the investigator says there is thereafter no further information.
The other thing I can't figure is where Uncle Guy comes from. He is Guy Robichaud in TBL, appearing to be Henri's brother, but then it seemed in TMP Henri was an only child, though not stated. And in The Sacred Shore it says: "He (Henri) slowed and waited for Louise's brother to hurry over. Henri had always liked Guy."
Although another reviewer missunderstood that Celeste was actually the name of two different characters, first the name of John's father's first wife but also the part of Louise's name. They missed the fact that she was named after her Grandmother, thus confirming her decent from John's half-sister.
All this said I found the entire Acadia series gripping, inspirational, challenging and it sparked a desire for a closer walk with God.

I have enjoyed this series since the beginning. This was a wonderful book. Finally, everyone is back together. Andrew has been sick, so both girls make journeys to see their parents. Anne comes from England with her husband, and Nicole comes from Massachusetts with her fiance.
Nicole is still looking for somewhere to call home, since she doesn't feel like she belongs anywhere. Anne has found a home, but is looking for something to do to help people.
The book is well written and moving. You can't help but feel for these families who mean sooo much to eachother. The mystery that is solved at the end brings it all together.
Hopefully, there is another book.

I probably notice the history content more then I should due to my schooling, but other then that, the book was pretty good. I felt this book was meant to tie up all the loose ends that had come about in the other books from the series. At times this book can come across preachy, but that's just my opinion. I liked this book, but enjoyed the others more.
