She Yearned to Find a Home for Her Heart The tragic Acadian saga recounted in The Meeting Place, when the British drove the French from Nova Scotia, has followed two families over a score of years to the birth pangs of a new nation. The Song of Acadia has been one full of pathos but also of hope. Faith in God and family eventually have brought the Henri Robichauds to Louisiana, and finally, to a life of tranquility among the bayous. Back in Nova Scotia, the Andrew Harrows have been beacons of light among the British and the French communities. But the American Revolution has created turmoil on two continents, dividing nations, people, and, sometimes, even families. Anne in England and Nicole in the New World have little hope of seeing one another again in the foreseeable future. Then a letter finds its way to both sisters with news that send them on a frantic and harrowing journey to...The Beloved Land.

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
Eastern socialite Cassandra Dell Winston was willing to travel to the ends of the earth to be with her husband, Dr. Samuel Smith. But it was still a shock when Sam took her west to a rustic frontier town--the place where They Called Her Mrs. Doc.
Henry--a Canadian Mountie like his father--struggles between the call of duty and the call of his heart. When he informs a young logger's wife of her husband's death, the memory of that loss haunts him for years. Assigned to a new beat five years later, he rediscovers Amber and gains her trust...and eventually her heart.

Ellie has blossomed into a lovely young woman, but is there any fellow around special enough to ask for her hand?
