In This Intimate Historical Epic, the Heart-wrenching Dilemmas of The Meeting Place Come to Rest on...The Sacred Shore Oceans and circumstances have forced families apart. For the banished French Acadians drifting in exile, the shore means safety--though it is a safety at a terrible price. For the lonely British nobleman, the shore holds a single chance to secure his legacy. For Andrew and Catherine Harrow, the shore marks a tragic separation. An extraordinary set of journeys awaits them all, each as intricate and perilous as the coastline itself. New beginnings are connected to all that has come before. And the past penetrates into what is yet to come. The common thread is a yearning to discover their identities in their families, in their communities, and in their God.… (more)

The plot follows Anne Harrow and Nicole Robichaud, whose families voluntarily switched them at birth (read the first novel to find out why) and then lost touch with each other when the Acadian Robichauds were forced out of Nova Scotia by British edict. Now grown, the girls learn about their "real" parents, and a shaken Nicole (born Anne) embarks on a desperate search to find the Harrows and reaffirm her belief in herself with God's help.

Another wonderful book in this series. I keep buying the next sequel to discover the new adventures the characters will encounter. Many spiritual truths written within as individuals grow through trials and changes. ( )

As Louise and Catherine's story continues, their daughters have grown up in the households of their "adoptive" parents, separated as infants from the parents who bore them by the trials of war. The Sacred Shore introduces the character of Charles, Andrew Harrow's older brother who holds the title of Earl to the lands where both were raised. He faces the prospects of dying without an heir and travels across the ocean to find a blood relative who can keep the family's lands within the family after he is gone. His quest leads him to places he doesn't expect and to a faith that he never knew existed. I read this novel after reading novel #3 so I'm not sure how much it would have compelled me to look to the next for further answers, given that the girls are reunited with their birth parents in this novel and originally that was what I wanted to find out about. But it is a good story, and having read novel #3, I am now eager to finish the series. ( )

In this sequel to The Meeting Place, the shoreline of America means hope for some and tragedy for others. ( )
