Overview

In This Intimate Historical Epic, the Heart-wrenching Dilemmas of The Meeting Place Come to Rest on...The Sacred Shore


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.

    Hello Nicole and The Horrow Family!

    This book talks about a girl who lives in Losianna and travels to Georgetown to find where she belongs and who her family is. Andrew has retired from The Navy and has been a preacher for 16 to 18 years. Anne gets married to Cyril and finds her long lost sister who she has never met. Also in the beginning of the book Charles Horrow, eighth earl of sutton has come and requested that she come to live with him for two years. The book is thrilling enough for you to read.

    A Novel Approach

    In this novel the authors tackle two different ideas and combine them into a thrilling adventure. There is the main plot line, full of suspense on whether Nicole will find her parents in Acadia, or whether or not Charles will find Nicole. Also it gives a deep outlook on faith and real-life questions asking if God is real or not. This novel takes you on a journey to yourself and makes you ask the same questions the characters have to ask themselves. The characters in The Sacred Shore are very easy to relate to. I found it easy to feel the same pain that Nicole feels when she wonders whether God hears her and sees her pain. Charles is another character I found easy to identify with. I think we've all questioned whether we can really do life on our own or if we do need help from a supernatural being. I think that if I were going to critque anything specific in this novel I would have to say that, being a series, it leaves you wanting to know the rest of the story. Anyway, I throughouly enjoyed reading The Sacred Shore, and I'm sure that any one who gives this book a chance won't be dissappointed.

    Christian historical novel.

    As a Cajun who has traveled to Nova Scotia to discover my roots, I appreciated the accuracy of the history portrayed in this series. I would recommend this series to young Christian women seeking to learn more about the lives of the early settlers of North America.

    Good

    This 230 page, Christian novel cost almost $6.00. I had read the THE MEETING PLACE, which is book one of this series and really enjoyed it. This is book two and it takes up 18 years after the first one ended, which disappointed me. I wanted to know more about the trails and adventures of the French after they were forced out of Arcadia. Instead, they were already settled in new area and what had occured in those eighteen years was only mentioned in a generalized way. The English took a back seat in this episode of the series. One part was a bit confusing, why take a ship, when the convoluted route, taken by the earl, could be achived faster by horseback? There were so many coming and goings, missing each other, back tracking, and coincidences, the traveling became quite frustrating. There is a lot of preaching, praying and Bible readings in this novel. It is a very clean read. I rated THE MEETING PLACE, five stars, while this one was good, it was not up to the standard set by book one, of this series. I bought the third book at the same time as the I did the second, I wish I had not and just borrowed them from the library instead. For readers 13 and up.

    I love the series, but...

    I thought it moved a little slow. But I'll try the rest of the series.
