Overview

Book 1 of Heirs of Acadia, continuing the story told in the bestselling Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn Song of Acadia series. Erica Langston's comfortable home and loving family living near Washington, D.C., carry no outward hint of the sorrows and fears faced by her Acadian forebears, but she will soon discover that similar determination and fortitude will be required of her. When the British once again invade the nation's capital and leave death and destruction in their wake, Erica is left to deal with the creditors circling around the crumbling family business. It seems her only recourse is to travel to England to collect on outstanding debts held in British banks. Arriving in London at the home of the United States ambassador, Erica is gradually immersed in a secret mission that brings her face-to-face with her most feared and reviled enemy. She discovers that Gereth Powers is part of a group of Christian activists headed up by William Wilberforce himself. Along the way, Erica comes to realize her faith has been more cultural than real, and her spiritual journey becomes far more signi?cant than her journey over the ocean.

Editorial Reviews

Romantic Times
It's 1812 and Erica Langston longs to help run the family business. Her mother won't hear of it--until Erica's father is killed in the British invasion of the U.S. Capitol. Then Erica becomes The Solitary Envoy and goes to Britain to claim money stolen by an unscrupulous English banker. Her sojourn is fraught with joy and peril, and she falls desperately in love with the one man she cannot have--the major in charge of the soldiers who killed her father. Will she learn to trust God and forgive before it is too late? T. Davis Bunn and Isabella Bunn pen an engrossing, neatly plotted story of one plucky woman's fight for freedom and faith. The authors' skills at envoking the flavor of the period and their grasp of the issues and mores of Regency England shine through.

"The Solitary Envoy" is an interesting story posed against a historical backdrop. It details the journey of a young woman courageous enough to defy societal expectations and follow the path untrod. However, the story contains several historical inaccuracies in English etiquette, society, and class structure. The plot is largely predictable, and the Christian message is also undeveloped, leaving the reader unsure of what Erica experiences. Her salvation is not explicitly mentioned; instead, she comes to "accept" God and her former attitudes "melt away." Although I found it interesting, I wouldn't read it again.

This is the last in a series 5 Books. The series is called Heirs of Acadia.  You should read them in order. 1) The Solitary Envoy  2) The Innocent Libertine  3) The Nobel Fugitive  4) The Night Angel  5) Falconer's Quest. I love these authors.

I enjoyed this story. I agree that it was on the predictable side, I still found the story enjoyable. I don't read Christian books to be presented the salvation message. It is an intriguing historical time, and the anti-slavery movement is certainly pertinent to the world today.

The heroine was a bit unbelievable-not feminine. Christian conversion is left in doubt due to lack of mentioning Christ. A bit odd. Overall good but still lacking.

Well written, not preachy but informative. It may be fiction but it is really well done.

Story is filled with lots of history which was very descriptive and well written, an outstanding historical, Christian, fiction novel.
