Overview

Davis and Isabella Bunn combine their complementary skills and experiences in crafting the compelling stories of the HEIRS OF ACADIA historical fiction series.

John Falconer, a hero readers can believe in, was introduced in Book 3, The Noble Fugitive. Along with Book 4, The Night Angel, these last three novels of the series can be appreciated on their own.

John Falconer, known to most as simply Falconer, is a large, powerfully built man whose gentle spirit shines through the physical and emotional scars of his previous life as a slave trader. His redemption has brought him full circle to the anti-slavery cause and a personal mission to free every slave he possibly can.

After the events recounted in The Night Angel, Falconer settles in a Moravian community on the Underground Railroad. He cherishes his new wife, Ada, and her son, Matt, whom he loves as his own. Falconer finally has discovered peace, within and without. When the unimaginable happens, he and Matt face a loss so searing they can barely endure another day.

Falconer finds himself back on board ship--this time with a father's responsibilities and an assignment of rescue rather than capture. His course takes him from the eastern seaboard of America to France, from Marseilles to the shores of North Africa. But enormous danger, risk of failure and even death challenge him on the high seas and in the desert's strongholds. He has conquered many of life's storms, but none as vast as this.

All the while, those inner bondages that have gripped as powerfully as iron chains are gradually loosening their hold. And a new hope begins to stir within...

The story of character forged in the fires of grief, loss and faith

    Excellent Heirs of Acadia historical tale

    In the 1830s in Salem though he mourns his loss John Falconer tries to move on following the death of his beloved wife of eighteen months Ada so that he can be there for her son Matt whom he promised to raise as his own. Already tight as a father and son though not the lad¿s natural sire, John and just turned ten Matt become even closer than most biological parents are with their children as they turn to one another for comfort. --- A friend Reginald Langston asks John for a favor for him and his wife Lillian as they are at their wit¿s end to free his willful adult stepson Byron from slave traders John agrees. With Matt at his side, John sails from their Moravian home across the Atlantic to France from there they continue their quest across Mediterranean to North Africa seeking the deadly abusive pirate Ali Saleem, notorious for leaving slaves and crew better off dead than alive from his beatings. --- The latest Heirs of Acadia historical tale is a terrific exciting high seas adventure thriller that never slows down from the moment Reginald makes his request until the final confrontation. However, as always with this strong series it is the characters, in this case John, who make the novel fun and inspirational. John has reasons to say no as he grieves his loss, but instead he says yes because his friend needs him. His fortitude will be tested by a vile pirate as the Bunn writing team provides a wonderful stand alone that will send the audience seeking previous saga works especially NOBLE FUGITIVE. --- Harriet Klausner

    Please give us a sequel to Falconer's Quest SOON.
    I have read most, if no all, of Janette OAK's books, beginning with the Canadian West series, Women of the west, Love comes softly and the collaborative efforts with T. Davis and Isabella Bunn, including the Heirs of Acadia series, and I highly recommend them to ALL readers.
