Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sheds new light on an age-old story I had always thought that I had a good grasp of the history of the 18th Century deportation of the Acadians from Nova Scotia, but I found that the story came to life like never before in the pages of Jeanne Dugas of Acadia. Riveting and filled with emotion, the book follows the life of Jeanne Dugas as she and her family try desperately to avoid deportation and remain in their beloved Acadia. The heartache that Jeanne faces is expressed flawlessly by the author, who uniquely captures a female perspective on the deportation. This is a must read for lovers of Acadian or Nova Scotian history, but would be enjoyed by all.
