5.0 out of 5 starsPage turner

I have to confess to being bored lately. I’ve read too many books full of romance but very little intrigue. This book captured my attention throughout and I found myself ignoring what I should be doing because I had to know what was happening next in the storyline. I would recommend reading books 1-3 before starting this one. I’m looking forward to reading book 5.
This book as a extension of the last looked to be predictable. But instead was a much appreciated surprise. Many new character s were added and the book focused on just one daughter so the confusion of who you were now following was gone. I loved the faith brought gently into it to show our true need and dependence on God for our survival. A great read. This copy did have a few errors in it & several times in the copy I found the authors names had accidentally been placed within a sentence...a bit strange. A few places words were spaced wrongly as well.

Poor Nicole; her restless spirit, combined with the hatred heaped upon her as a child refugee, has made it difficult to find the home and love she so longs for. Further she refuses to compromise her faith to marry a man she loves who keeps God at arm's length. The estate she had imagined as her future home fades away with the fortunes of war and she, along with her companions, is in constant danger. How can the God she loves withhold from her all the things her heart so longs for? This 4th installment of the Acadia series is as well written as each of the previous 3, and it takes the adventure up several notches. This is a great read.

This book, along with the others in the series, was excellent. I always enjoy Oke's books, and I really enjoyed this series very much. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves a good Christian romance. The characters are not one dimensional either. They all have faults, and must find their own way in service to the Lord, guided by loved ones' advice. You can't go wrong with this series. I identified much with Nicole's trials and harships. It's also great for those who love historical books, taking place in Revolutionary War times.It's perfect for a rainy day, a fluffy chair, and a good cup of tea. I couldn't put it down, and had to read to book 5. I'd definitely recommend if you start the series, to buy all books at once.
I am English and from a background that had to struggle to rectify the injustices of authoritarian control of natural progress. The people of the American colonies, as they were, were not the only people to suffer unjust and ludicrous taxes. The British did not get the benefit of living in a place that lent itself to a fight for independence. Their taxes had also been used to support the defence of British colonists when required. The British peasant system suffered in for 140 years after the American war of Independence and we only saw its demise during the First World War. Well overdue. I was taught at school that the American Revolution was a just cause. Britain only tended to lose a war when they were fighting against a just cause. Rightly so. It was a pretty rare event though. This book relied heavily on far too many coincidences that spoilt it for me. The sermons on behalf of faith in God we’re thought provoking as well as being reminders but at times they were suffocating my own reasoning and beliefs. I do not like being trapped into listening as I was with this book. Progress was not possible without attending to the sermon.

I have loved this book as much as the previous books in the series. It has kept me gripped throughout,often surprising me along the way. It has encouraged me in my journey with God and brought both challenge and delight as l have read. I can,t wait to start on book five.
