"Vivid paintings illustrate this story. The story, . . . the notion of a lifetime of unrequited love, may seem old-fashioned, but perhaps romance never truly goes out of style."
--Children's Literature

In the shadow of enemy British ships, Evangeline and Gabriel invite all the Acadian villagers to come dance and celebrate young love at the couple's engagement party. Instead of wedding toasts, the British shout out a proclamation saying, Because you refused to honor your new ruler, the King of England, His Majesty commands that all of your possessions be taken from you and that you be sent far away to distant lands.

Shouting soldiers rip children from their mothers' arms, and Gabriel and Evangeline are pushed onto separate ships. Evangeline spends years searching and praying for a safe reunion with her one true love, Gabriel. She follows Indian
guides and smoke trails only to find she has again missed Gabriel by a few days. And while her youth and beauty gradually faded, her love for Gabriel never died. Read Evangeline for Children to see how these Acadian souls are finally united as one.

From the Inside Flap:

The epic tale of the flight of the Acadians from Nova Scotia is told through the timeless story of Evangeline and Gabriel.
The pair's engagement party is cut short by British troops bearing a proclamation to take the Acadians' property because they failed to pay allegiance to the king of England. They are summarily sent to distant lands.

As children are taken from their mothers' arms, sadness and confusion settle over the crowd and Evangeline and Gabriel are separated. For the rest of her life, Evangeline searches in vain for her lost love, so that "while her youth and beauty gradually faded, her love for Gabriel never died."

Authors Alice Couvillon and Elizabeth Moore both graduated from Newcomb College in New Orleans and now live in Covington, Louisiana, where the two continue to collaborate on writing projects. Their previous Pelican titles include Mimi's First Mardi Gras, Mimi and Jean-Paul's Cajun Mardi Gras, and Louisiana Indian Tales.

Alison Davis Lyne is a freelance illustrator who lives and works on a small farm in south-central Kentucky. She has done spot illustrations, magazine covers, greeting cards, traditional portraits, and portraits in the style of medieval icons and also paints for the fine-art market. Her love of historical illustration comes from wanting to "see" history as a child. To see more of her work, please visit her Web site at www.lyneart.com.

About the Author:
