about

How radically lives can be altered by sudden twists of fate . . . by luck . . . by backroom politics in a darkened corridor in Beijing. From an orphanage in Guongdong, South China and the 13,000 kilometre (8,000 mile) journey to a village on Nova Scotia’s south shore, this is just one story in what was the largest exodus of children from a single country in the history of mankind. This is the story of Eva and Me.

Born in Guangdong province in south China in 2002, Eva (Mei) was orphaned at two days old. At 18 months, she was adopted by Canadian parents, and now makes her home in a small fishing village on Nova Scotia’s south shore. John MacIntyre is an author, a book publisher, and Eva’s father. They live in Lunenburg, Nova Scotia.

Editorial Reviews

Heart Eva and Me is an engaging read, seamlessly moving back and forth from the intensely personal to larger questions about family, adoption, race, culture and place. At its heart, it is a story about the love of a father for his daughter.”— Tim Lehnert, journalist and author of Rhode Island 101 Enchanting “The power of love radiates from the words and images like a Debussy song: light, enchanting and touching a universal joy."—Jon Tattrie, author of Cornwallis and The Hermit of Africville Love Story At it’s very core, Eva and Me is a love story—the love parents feel for their child and the love she returns to them.— Vernon Oickle, author Red Sky at NightBeautiful . . .This book is written in a quietly beautiful style. It’s far more than a factual account of Eva’s life so far. You can feel the love, the fears, the understanding in every phrase. Everyone who has dealings with a young child — even if he or she is not adopted from another country — should read Eva and Me.— Elizabeth Cran, The Charlottetown GuardianMORE Eva and Me is part memory scrapbook, part memoir, part illuminating history of a significant time in China’s existence. I hope that there will be future books about Eva and her family as she and her sister grow up and their lives continue to blossom.— Jodi Delong, The Chronicle Herald
