"The Distant Beacon" by Janette Oke & T. Davis Bunn

About this book:

  “Anne's sorrow over her husband's death has been eased by the unexpected discovery of his heritage in the Harrow family and by her marriage to a brilliant young theologian. But Nicole is as restless as ever and has decided to return to North America. Should she go to the Acadian family of her childhood in Louisiana's bayous? Or should she settle in Nova Scotia near her birth parents? The American colonies are in revolt against England, and Uncle Charles asks her to go to Massachusetts to oversee his extensive landholdings. The attentions of the ship's captain during the crossing touch a yearning deep within her, but she also realizes all her loyalties are about to be tested. Is she French? Is she English? Is she a supporter of the American cause? Nicole's unique legacy will allow her to play an extraordinary role in the unfolding historic events, but will she be able to find a home for her heart?”

My personal Rating-
Oh my goodness! This—I—she—ahhh! Wow, just wow. Ahem.
This series is unbelievable (in a good way) on how clean is it! Like I said in the first book in this series’ review, I would love to see more authors in the Christian Fiction world like Janette Oke! So clean and full of Spiritual Content, now that’s a good read.

See y’all on Wednesday 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.
