Publisher's Summary

In the 18th century, the residents of Acadia live in a fragile truce. The settlers of this rough Canadian island are either French or British, and the two nationalities do not mix, no matter how close their villages are. One day in a meadow, two women begin a friendship. Although Catherine is British, and Louisa is French, the women become as close as sisters. But when war breaks out, their friendship and their faith lead to a sacrifice greater than they could ever predict.

Both Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn are best-selling authors, known world-wide for their inspiring novels. Their collaborative works, including Return to Harmony, have thrilled millions of readers. In The Meeting Place, they have created an unforgettable story set in a dramatic period of Canadian history.

The Meeting Place: Song of Acadia

Story Of how enemy's only exist when we create them ourselves. God's work through love can remove the walls created by man. Lovely, yet so sad story of 2 families separated by man's fear of his own weakness.

Christian Historical Fiction

It took me a bit to get into this book, but now I wish it was not over!
So much faith in both the good times and bad! So much sacrifice and love for one's "enemies" it could only come from God!
The narration was ideal! Emotional when needed. I couldn't ask for a better narrator for these English and French characters who are both military and civilians, commoners and wealthy. 5 stars!

Good Bood

I first read these books in High School and have been an avid audiobook listener in recent years. I like the book and have fond memories of the books but admittedly am struggling with the reader. The simpering cavity sweet voice she uses for the two main characters is a bit hard to listen to but alas, they were recorded ages ago and voice artists have grown a lot in the intervening years. Not bad just challenging.

A Big disappointment

So sad I used a credit for this book. There is nothing of Janette Oke's warmth and uplifting stile in this book. It is a lot of boring details about vanity and nothing interesting. I try to skip parts and hoped it would bee better but not so. It is very sad that Audible give so little sample one can not hear the style in a book at such a short time. The woman who reads the story has a voice with no life it does the book evan more boring.

Thoroughly enjoyed

Thoroughly enjoying this series. Great stories with unexpected turns. Love the narrators use of accents and voice for the wide variety of characters. Well done!
