A Chance Encounter Forever Changed Their Lives--and Destinies.

Crafted by two masters of inspirational fiction--Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn--and combining the engaging historical settings, rich characterization, and heartwarming messages quintessential to both authors, The Meeting Place is another timeless story for you to cherish.

Set along the rugged coastline of 18th century Canada in what was then called Acadia (now Nova Scotia and New Brunswick), The Meeting Place re-creates a world that was home to native Indians, French settlers, and English garrisons. Such diverse populations did not live in accord, however. Instead, they were isolated within their own groups by a brewing political tension under the difficult English rule.

Amid such chaotic times two women, both about to become brides and both trying to live lives of quiet peace, meet in a lush field of wildflowers. Louisa, a Frenchwoman, and Catherine, who is English, continue to meet secretly through the seasons, sharing both friendship and growing faith.

The outside world does not mirror their own tranquil happiness, and the dreaded crackdown by the English throne threatens far more than their growing bond. In the face of a heart-wrenching dilemma, Louisa and Catherine strive to maintain their faith and cling to their dreams of family and home.

Winner of the Christy Award, presented by the Christian Bookseller Association to honor the best in Christian fiction.

Two young women, their lives shadowed by nations in conflict, begin a friendship that will propel them on a journey from which they can never turn back....

    ‘The meeting place’ is the first in the five-book series ‘Song of Acadia’. It’s set in the 17th century, in ‘Acadia’ on the Canadian coast; England was at war with France, although there was an uneasy peace in the Acadian region.The novel features two women: one English, one French. They become friends and discover that despite their different backgrounds, they are at a similar stage in life. I liked the way that the story was told, from alternate points of view. A good picture is painted of these two women as we learn about their daily lives, their hopes and their fears. There’s some overt Christian content; but I didn’t find it too preachy, and it was mostly relevant to the story.As the book progresses, tension rises and there is some high drama towards the end which - to my disappointment - leaves the story unfinished, hanging in the air. I downloaded this book free for my kindle; presumably it was as a taster for the series, to tempt me to pay full price for the others. I’m not inclined to do that - yet I’m interested enough that I plan to look out for second-hand editions of the paperback versions.All in all, I’d recommend this - but be prepared to buy at least one sequel too.

    This is the first book in the Song of Acadia series and I was so thrilled with it that I bought the rest of the series. The storyline is entralling and the people come to life. I got so involved with it that I was crying at times. It is wonderful to find books that are Christian based that can be passed to non Christian friends. I would really recommend this book.

    I thought this was an excellent book with a wonderful Christian theme. It was fascinating the book was set at that time. I too, want to be a handmaiden of the Lord!

    I've just discovered Jeanette Oke and I really like her writing. This is an interesting story based on the English/French relationship in Canada in the early 18th century, and as is usual with this author, is a lesson in faith and tolerance. The author clearly has a strong religious influence in her works, but not in a preaching or pious manner which might have been off-putting to some. I enjoyed this book and will continue to the rest of the books in this series.
