The Sea Is So Wide is a passionate story of love and separation set against the tragic events of the Acadian Deportation of the mid-eighteenth century.

In the rich Acadian heartland in the summer of 1755, Barbe Comeau offers overnight shelter in her family home to an English officer. Within weeks the Comeaus find themselves in the reeking hold of a ship, cruelly exiled from their Acadian homes. Barbe believes the charming English officer must have betrayed her; when he comes to her in her new Virginia home, however, she realizes he, too, has sacrificed much for love.

The Sea Is So Wide is a gripping historical romance set against the background of one of the most terrible passages in Canadian History.
