Publisher's Summary

In Acadia, two young mothers, one British and one French, have become good friends, despite the enmity between their peoples. The French woman's baby girl becomes critically ill. Since the British woman has access to medical care denied to the French, they exchange infants. But, suddenly, the French are expelled from Acadia, and the women are unable to meet again.

Separated by a continent, each mother raises the other's child as if she were her own. Now, 18 years later, the emotional and spiritual effects of the exchange are about to come to light. An Englishman is searching for his heir. Two young women are searching for their heritage. And God's strength is waiting for them all.

Hooked on the Series

From the first book to the second, I have been hooked and looking forward to having time to listen to the story of these two families. Just finished The Sacred Shore and have purchased the next three books in the series to continue the journey. I would definatly recommend this to listeners.

Interesting as well as inspiring

The 2nd book of this series is easier to read (listen) than the first. I anticipated each chapter to learn more of the various characters’ adventures. I ultimately enjoyed the story. The prayers were inspiring. However, some of the descriptions of people’s looks, thoughts, similes were unrealistic in my opinion i.e. eyes as deep as the oceans, etc. I will listen to the next book in the series.

creepy

I really love the books, but the reader was kind of odd. She did accents, which was nice, but she made people who were probably only about 45ish sound as though their knees were wobbly with age. The effect was a little creepy.
