This is the first in a trilogy about "le grand d rangement," the tragic "great dislocation" of the mid-18th century, in which the Acadians were wrenched from their chilly but beloved home in Nova Scotia and deposited in the sultry swamps of Louisiana. Using the search for the heroine's father as a framework, this adventurous story focuses on the prickly but passionate relationship between intrepid, outspoken Emilie, the eldest of the three Gallant sisters, and lifelong friend Lorenz Landry as they gradually realize that friendship and love are not mutually exclusive. An unusual subject enhanced by interesting historical detail and secondary characters that promise rewarding stories of their own add interest to this romance; and although the heroine's internal attempts to resist the hero are occasionally exasperating, readers interested in Cajun culture and tales of separation and reunion may find this novelDand possibly those that followDof interest. Claire (A Cajun Dream) lives in Baton Rouge, LA. [Kensington has planned a July launch for Ballad, its new line of linked historicals. Starting with The Acadians and three other titles, four romances will be released each month.]
