John Falconer now knows that Serafina is not the woman for him, and he watches her growing love for Nathan with pride and contentment. His own love for the warm and dignified Moravian widow, Ada, fills him with great joy. But it also makes his new assignment all the more difficult to carry out since he will be gone from her for many months. When he finally returns to her in Salem, the news that meets him rocks him to the core. Matt's desperate cry rings in his ears, but how can he possibly agree to the boy's heart-wrenching request when his own heart is already broken? The story of character forged in the fires of grief, loss, and faith. Heirs of Acadia - Book 5 ( )

Book description
This is the fifth book in the Heirs of Acadia series. These last two books have taken a direction away from the actual heirs of the characters in the first series Song of Acadia. It seems the authors or publisher or both wanted to introduce new unrelated (except by friendship and acquaintance) characters so that these two books could stand alone. It would not be nessesary to read the first books to understand the story.

Although I enjoyed the story in Falconer's Quest I felt a little cheated in not knowing more about what happened to the Heirs of the first series. This seemed a little like a marketing ploy both in connecting it to the first series which was co-authored by Janette Oke and then in ending with stand alone books.

But having said that, the book Falconer's Quest was a good read with some valuable spiritual application in the lives of some very rough human characters.
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0764203584, Paperback)

Davis and Isabella Bunn combine their complementary skills and experiences in crafting the compelling stories of the HEIRS OF ACADIA historical fiction series.

John Falconer, a hero readers can believe in, was introduced in Book 3, The Noble Fugitive. Along with Book 4, The Night Angel, these last three novels of the series can be appreciated on their own.

John Falconer, known to most as simply Falconer, is a large, powerfully built man whose gentle spirit shines through the physical and emotional scars of his previous life as a slave trader. His redemption has brought him full circle to the anti-slavery cause and a personal mission to free every slave he possibly can.

After the events recounted in The Night Angel, Falconer settles in a Moravian community on the Underground Railroad. He cherishes his new wife, Ada, and her son, Matt, whom he loves as his own. Falconer finally has discovered peace, within and without. When the unimaginable happens, he and Matt face a loss so searing they can barely endure another day.

Falconer finds himself back on board ship--this time with a father's responsibilities and an assignment of rescue rather than capture. His course takes him from the eastern seaboard of America to France, from Marseilles to the shores of North Africa. But enormous danger, risk of failure and even death challenge him on the high seas and in the desert's strongholds. He has conquered many of life's storms, but none as vast as this.

All the while, those inner bondages that have gripped as powerfully as iron chains are gradually loosening their hold. And a new hope begins to stir within...
