I have loved this book as much as the previous books in the series. It has kept me gripped throughout,often surprising me along the way. It has encouraged me in my journey with God and brought both challenge and delight as l have read. I can,t wait to start on book five.

HASH(0x928be744) out of 5 stars Good book, but not the best in the series 15 Jun. 2002
By J. Peterson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
So far, I have enjoyed this series very much. However, I thought that book 3 was the best so far. This book is the story of Nicole, more than anyone else, trying to find her place in the world. It is filled with faith, daring, adventure and love. She comes to realize that she must hold firm to her convictions of right and wrong in order to live a happy and successful life. Gordon comes to realize what it is Nicole requires in order to admit her love for him.
Throughout it all, the relationship between family members is strengthened and enriched by the love they share for one another. I am looking forward to book 5 this fall.

HASH(0x928be798) out of 5 stars Filled with passionate romance, betrayal, and a revolution 7 Jun. 2002
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Book four in Jannette Oke and T. Davis Bunn's "Song of Arcadia" historical fiction saga, The Distant Beacon is set amid the war for American Independence, as two women find themselves swept into different lives - one in Great Britian, the other setting sail for the American colonies. Filled with passionate romance, betrayal, and a revolution that will change the world, The Distant Beacon is a compelling novel that sweeps the reader away with its heartfelt emotion. Also highly recommended are the early volumes of the "Song Of Arcadia" series: The Meeting Place; The Sacred Shore; and The Birthright.

HASH(0x928bebd0) out of 5 stars Best of the 'Song of Acadia' Series..... 12 April 2002
By Deborah L. Woodstuff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This may very well be the best book yet in the series. The story line is very believable and unpredictable. I must say that all the books in the series are great and once started are almost impossible to put down. I am excited that another book in the series is coming out in the fall of 2002.
As the other reviewer mentioned, I too would like more involvement of the Acadian parents.

HASH(0x928bef9c) out of 5 stars Enthralling! 30 July 2002
By C. Jurjevich - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I realized what a glorious text this was after I read thru it for the second time. The first time thru I got the impression that the storyline was somewhat scattered. But I was wrong. Thank you, Mrs. Oke and Mr. Bunn, for keeping the language and mannerisms true to the era and cultures portrayed in the books. Nothing is more disappointing and annoying than for the characters in the book to suddenly take on 20th century attitudes and conduct. A precious story...
HASH(0x928bef48) out of 5 stars A must read! 23 Sept. 2011
By Fishfulthinkr - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book, along with the others in the series, was excellent. I always enjoy Oke's books, and I really enjoyed this series very much. I'd recommend it to anyone who loves a good Christian romance. The characters are not one dimensional either. They all have faults, and must find their own way in service to the Lord, guided by loved ones' advice. You can't go wrong with this series. I identified much with Nicole's trials and harships. It's also great for those who love historical books, taking place in Revolutionary War times.It's perfect for a rainy day, a fluffy chair, and a good cup of tea. I couldn't put it down, and had to read to book 5. I'd definitely recommend if you start the series, to buy all books at once.
