4.0 out of 5 starsI loved these books
Reviewed in the United States on September 28, 2016
I loved these books, the story was great. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five is because the story stretched out over 5 books and then wrapped up too quickly at the end leaving parts of the story unfinished. It never tells what happened with Nicole's home in Mass. and whether she had a boy or a girl and if Anne reunites with her son John and if Charles decides to leave England and come to America. Hopefully there will be another book to answer these questions.
5.0 out of 5 starsA Fine Conclusion to a Beautiful Series

This book finally brings all the loose threads together and ties them up into a neat packages... perhaps a bit too neat. The ending is nearly pure sugar. I thought for a minute that an early '70's Coke commercial was going to break out in the concluding paragraphs with the whole world holding hands and singing songs of world peace. But if too sweet is the worst charge one can lay before a Christian romantic series, then how can anyone complain? This book dashed all over the vast territories covered in this series, changing perspectives with every leap of geography, but the same great storytelling and the same adventure were present in this book. Peace and forgiveness were the themes of this war torn novel. God's providence was also featured in the storyline--that God was in control even in the hardest circumstances; indeed, even when the events were beyond human comprehension.
This continuing story of the Harrow and French families of Acadia series was told very well. The tale is during the Revolutionary war so families were thrown together.. the love that developed between louise n Catherine's daughters is amazing as they find faith and love that has developed between the families.good reading..
This is one of the best series of books I have ever had the pleasure of reaading. I find myself wishing there could be 6 the book to read. I am very interested in this time frame in our history. It was one I had to force myself to put down and get to sleep. The best part were the Christian values and Godly lessons in the stories. I highly recommend this series.

This is the final book in a series of five books. I love the story of two mothers and their daughters. It is a story of faith and coming to faith and sharing and living that faith. The book came quite quickly. I was pleasantly surprised. In the review it did not mention that it was large print. But it was in very good shape and no pen/pencil marks like the review said.
I have read all five books, and absolutely loved this series. I am a big Janette Oke fan, having read many of her other books, and this series does not disappoint. Excellent!! I read many books of historical and Christian fiction. This series is one of the best! Characters are so well developed that you feel you come to know them, and can't wait to continue to read them all, to finish their stories. It is also refreshing to read love stories without explicit sexual content. Thank you, Janette Oke!
The book , and series before it, is well written and set in a period of such a momentous change in British and American history which began a great adventure to establish a new nation. It is a pity for us British that more of our citizens could not have been part of it all because the spirit of adventure and fair play is still there in most of us and I like to think that America would have been even greater with us than without us. For the urge for the right of self determination came from the British Settlers -or colonists- and their descendants. There were still too many coincidences that stretched my mathematical mind to incredulity but without which the storyline would have been very different.
I have completed all the books in this Arcadian series. All of them compelling page turners! I loved them and actually felt a sadness to leave the characters behind as their lives faith and spiritual journey so convincing and a reminder of how great God is and how involved He is with those who have a relationship with Him. Whilst this is all fiction in terms of the story it could easily be true.
I have grown to love the characters so much. Thank you for your beautiful and inspirational writing. Reading these books have inspired me to live a more Godly and spiritual life. Truly loved your writing from the first page to the last. Every page was unputdownable filled with suspense intrigue and well written story telling. God bless this wonderful book and series.

After thoroughly enjoying the Song of Acadia Series, book 5 does not seem to end the story of the two families. Whether this is deliberate so that, perhaps, book 6 could be written in the future, or perhaps is being written at the moment, I don't know. If anyone sees book 6 anywhere, could you please let me know? Thanks
