Overview

The story of old Acadia is reborn!

On a cold winter night, an old woman gathers her grandchildren at her feet and recounts the story of the Acadia she once knew. From the stirring simplicity of the Acadians’ daily community to their exile from the only home they’d ever known, this spellbinding and deeply personal tale grants new life to a rich culture that exists only in the faintest of memories. Including the legendary story of Evangeline, an orphan who was torn from her fiancé and lived the rest of her life in grief, Felix Voorhies (1839-1919) shares his own grandmother’s account of war, pilgrimage, sacrifice, and the Acadian spirit.
