Book 5 of Song of Acadia. In their own incomparable style, Janette Oke and T. Davis Bunn paint a portrait both lavish and poignant of the colorful, chaotic world of the American Revolution, where danger is rife and political views run deep. And once drawn into that world, readers will be reluctant to reemerge until the last triumphant chapter has drawn to a close. Learning of their beloved father's precariously ill health, Anne and Nicole make separate plans to visit him in Georgetown, in spite of the dangerous instability of the times. Nicole travels from Massachussetts with her fiancé, while Anne and her husband must brave an arduous transatlantic crossing from England. But the hazards of travel are not to be compared to the events or struggles with which each of these "sisters of the heart" must ultimately come to terms.

I do not like the abridged version. I enjoy following along with the actual printed book as if someone is reading it to me but so much was removed and cut out, whole chapters. secondly, I'm not sure why the "French" Arcadians had German/Russian accents by the narrator. It was not how I imagined they would sound and it put me off. Also, Nicole's accent was too strong, in prior books it is mentioned how she sounds a lot more English with a slight French lilt. I feel like I unfortunately wasted my credit on what is a lovely book series, but just not done as well here.
