Critical Praise

Majestic and stately as Conrad Richter’s Awakening Light trilogy, Evangeline is a big book from a big mind.

—Katherine Weber, author of TRUE CONFECTIONS and TRIANGLE

Ben Farmer brings a legend to life in EVANGELINE, evoking grace and panache the travails of the Acadians in mid-18th century America from Nova Scotia to New Orleans. Farmer is a wonderful storyteller, and readers won’t soon forget this tale of love and fortitude. Simply riveting.

—Keith Donohue, New York Times bestelling author of THE STOLEN CHILD and ANGELS OF DESTRUCTION
