In the eighteenth 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 bestselling 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. Download and start listening now!

    " I enjoyed the characters of the story and the storyline. I felt that it was slow and hard to get into, although it picked up much more at the end. I also wish there had been more detail as to the conflict between the British and French going on during that time period. I was not familiar with the history, and so the storyline did not impact me as much. I am going to read the sequel though, because I have to find out what happens next! "
