Critical Praise

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

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
