"Nathalie: An Acadian's Tale of Tragedy and Triumph chronicles the "coming-of-age" story of Nathalie Belliveau, a 13-year-old Acadian girl. Separated from her family during the 1755 expulsion from Grand-Pré, Nova Scotia, Nathalie travels more than 150 kilometres to Cap-Sable with two older companions, encountering the Mi'kmaq along the way. When Nathalie reaches Pobomcoup (Pubnico), she becomes betrothed to Ange Amirault-but her happiness is short-lived when the British deport the Acadians living there from Baccaro Passage in 1756. A series of tragic events keep the young lovers apart. Nathalie must use her tenacity and self-efficacy to survive as an indentured servant in North Carolina. Meanwhile, Ange must overcome the hardships of family heartbreaks and subsistence living in the hope of reuniting with his betrothed. Written for young adults, the novel is based on the real lives of two Acadian families-the Belliveaus and Amiraults-and is grounded solidly in historic facts about the Acadian expulsion and their exile in Massachusetts for ten years. It is an account that parallels Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem, Evangeline. But unlike the separation of Evangeline and Gabriel, the desperate circumstances of Nathalie and Ange culminate in an Acadian bloodline that continues to thrive even to this day."--Publisher.
