Overview


When Monique LeBlanc disappears from Nova Scotia, her cousin Michelle is panic-stricken. Their summer vacation has taken an ominous turn, and a search begins. At the site of Monique's disappearance in Grand-Pre Historic Park, police find a picture of her mother, Catherine, who passed away years ago, near Evangeline's statue.

Michelle knows that Monique is visiting the park to honor the dream she shared with her mother of visiting their Canadian homeland. What she doesn't know is that Monique has gone back in time to her ancestors' exile, actually living through the horrific deportation of thousands of Acadians to Louisiana in 1755.

Are you kidding me? Any time you mix true history with fantasy fiction, you've got yourself a great novel! I happen to be of Acadian heritage and I truly enjoyed Catherine's Cadeau. I think Dr. Thibodeaux and Ms. Davidson did a wonderful job bringing the past and the present together. I love the historical information shared and hope for a Book TWO!

Great book! Full of history of cajun people! Couldn't put it down until the end!

Oh my -those two 1 star ratings below are 100% wrong! (I actually question their authenticity.) This is a great read! What a great trip through both the history as well as the lives of the contemporary Cajun! I loved the character development, and how Monique fit both into the contemporary world and the historical world. Anyone with an interest in Cajun history, Cajun/Zydeco music, would love to read this! Heck - anyone would like to read it, regardless! One thing I especially liked was the fact that even though it was written by two authors, it was written with "one voice." Often, when two authors write a work, you can tell that one wrote one part and the other wrote the other part. Not so with this one! Read it - you'll love it!

Catherine's Cadeau is a heartbreaking, and heartwarming, story of the expulsion of the Acadian people that wound realistic character development with mystical time travel, to create a fascinating historic novel that taught me something about history and Cajun culture. Davidson and Thibodeaux obviously worked well together researching the history and creating the dialog, leaving the reader wanting for more. I look forward to the sequel.

From the jilting and haphazard storyline as well as the "stuffed down your throat history lessons," I found this to easy be the worst thing in print.

This "book" was a waste of my time. I would hardly call even call it a novel, because nothing was novel about it. Normally, I don't write book reviews but I wanted to spare anyone out there from purchasing this nonsense. The thing is so poorly written I wished I could slog through it with my eyes closed.
