Item Description...
Overview
Two young women--one of French descent, and one English--living in eighteenth-century Acadia struggle to maintain their friendship in the face of a pending English crackdown.

Publishers Description
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.

Worth Reading  Jun 9, 2006
This book was worth reading but there was one downside. The beginning was really slow and I had a hard time getting through it. I almost stopped reading. Once you get through the beginning, however, it is a REALLY good book and definitely worth reading.
 
Original Store Line  Mar 30, 2006
I would highly recommend this book because of the original story line. The story was unlike any other that I had read. When I came to the end I had to have the next book to see what happened, and of course, I wanted to read the remaining ones. Janette provided some very good lessons with having faith, and how to handle decision making in our life with the help of God. It's a five-star book in my opinion.
 
"The Meeting Place" by Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn, 5 stars  Jan 1, 2006
I rated "The Meeting Place" with five stars because it was a really good book, it shows how two young women from two different cultures and religions were able to come together in times of war and still have a really special friendship. I like how they both happen to be at the meadow at the same time and how they felt such a close tie even though they were complete strangeres to each oher, how they both got married on the same day, and how thye had their first child only a few days apart from each other, amazingly enough. I think its so sweet how, near the middle of the book, they become such great friends that they think of each others as sisters that neither of them ever had. I think that it was really selfless of Catherine to be willing to risk her social life and not be near her baby for weeks just to help Louise's baby recover from her illness!
I loved the morals and life lessons in this book, like when they had to trust in the Lord to bring them back together after they were seperated and how Catherine, Andrew, Louise, and Henri all become strong Christians. I think it is amazing how, in their time of need, they can always depend on each other for support and encouragement. I love how the men are bound together in their own bond of friendship just because of the womens friendship with each other, even when Catherines husband is a military captain and they should be sworn enemys. I think this book is just amazing and strongly encourage you to read it, even if it is historically innacurate it's still excellent. I though it was really interesting and can't wait to read the sequel too.

Some other books that I would recommend are A Walk to Remember, The Love Comes Softly Series, and The Elsie Dinsmore Series. I am a person who loves to read and whenever I read a book I get so into it that its like I'm there while its happening.
