"The Sacred Shore" by Janette Oke & T. Davis Bunn

About this book:

  “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.”

(and a half)
At first I was a bit taken back that this novel is set eighteen years after book #1, “The Hiding Place, but once I got over that, I really enjoyed it! Not as much as the first book in the series, but I still was in awe of all the Spiritual Content and lack of Sexual Content!

See y’all on Friday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
