Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
In 1753, the French and British settlers of Acadia are divided by threats of war. Realizing that fighting will surely break out if the British government demands oaths of loyalty from the French settlers, Catherine Price hopes for the best and continues to plan her wedding to Lieutenant Andrew Harrow. Louise Belleveau is also planning to marry, and the two women meet accidentally while picking wildflowers for their wedding bouquets. They quickly form a bond, only to have their friendship threatened by the growing tension between their two societies. Oke and Bunn's (The Matchmakers, LJ 11/1/97) huge readership should find much to enjoy in this smoothly written romantic adventure, though others may be put off by the overstated messages about peace, love, and the importance of God.
