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.

From the Back Cover
Oceans and circumstances have forced families apart. For the banished French Acadians drifting in exile, the shore means safety -- though it is a safety at a terrible price. For the lonely British nobleman, the shore holds a single chance to secure his legacy. For Andrew and Catherine Harrow, the shore marks a tragic separation.
An extraordinary set of journeys awaits them all, each as intricate and perilous as the coastline itself. New beginnings are connected to all that has come before. And the past penetrates into what is yet to come. The common thread is a yearning to discover their identities in their families, in their communities, and in their God.
In this intimate historical epic, the heart-wrenching dilemmas of The Meeting Place come to rest on...

Louise and Henri who are now settled in Louisiana haven't forgotten their friends from Acadia. They waited until her daughter, Nicole, was older before they told her about her other parents. Nicole's uncle decides to head north to Acadia and Nicole must resolve something before she is to follow him.
Charles Harrow, Andrew's brother comes to Acadia looking for his brother and niece. But there is more than you think behind his reasons for coming to Acadia. Will he deceive his family or himself?
This book is a wonderful continuation to the Song of Acadia series. These two do a wonderful job writing the series. If you like this book be sure to read the next one.
I would recommend this book. The story will grab you from the beginning.
Again the characters that are introduced in this book are very real and the areas like Louisiana are also very well depicted. The book follows closely the real history of the Acadians. The plot is again very well developed and keeps the readers interested till the end.
Good interesting reading.
