Ben Farmer, author of Evangeline

EVANGLINE is both a sweeping love story and harrowing journey from Nova Scotia in Canada to New Orleans in pre-revolutionary America. As the British drove the French out of mid-18th century Acadia (present-day Nova Scotia), the beautiful 17-year-old Evangeline Bellefontaine is torn by British soldiers from her fiancé, Gabriel Lajeunesse, on the eve of their wedding.
