British, French, and American threads were skillfully woven together in the Song of Acadia novels by Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn. The heart-wrenching plot of The Meeting Place introduced the tragic banishment of the French from their homes in Nova Scotia in the mid-1700s and their determined survival as Acadians in Louisiana. Now Davis and Isabella pick up the Acadian threads some years later with descendants of those brave early settlers of the New World. Erica Langston's comfortable home and loving family living near Washington, D.C., carry no outward hint of the sorrows and fears faced by her Acadian forebears, but she will soon discover that similar determination and fortitude will be required of her. When the British once again invade the nation's capital and leave death and destruction in their wake, Erica is left to deal with the creditors circling around the crumbling family business. It seems her only recourse is to travel to England to collect on outstanding debts held in British banks. Arriving in London at the home of the United States ambassador, Erica is gradually immersed in a secret mission that brings her face-to face with her most feared and reviled enemy. She discovers that Gereth Powers IS part of a group of Christian activists headed up by William Wilberforce himself.
