The Night Angel
This is the fourth book in the Heirs to Acadia series, taking place in pre-Civil War America. The two main characters, John Falconer and Serafina Gavis, share a deep friendship but go their separate ways in this volume to build their lives in different destinies. In Christian fiction, prayers and Bible readings are expected; however, they got a bit repetitious for me at times. However, the redemption of the former slave shipmaster and his march through the South freeing slaves were riveting and believable. So, also, was the depiction of the divine inspiration infusing the artist’s already fine work, elevating it to mastery – who would deny that extra something in the best art? The Moravian culture of Pennsylvania is introduced as a means to freedom for newly-released slaves, and a refuge in other ways to a man seeking to lighten the burden of his past. More episodes will follow in this series, but plenty of action takes place here, and both John and Serafina have moved forward in their lives as well.
