A coming- of-age story filled with heroism and heartbreak for 13-year-old Acadian Nathalie Belliveau. Separated from her family during the brutal 1755 expulsion of Acadians from Grand-Pre´, Nova Scotia, Nathalie escapes and travels more than 150 kilometres on foot to Cap-Sable. When the compassionate Amirault family takes her in, she falls for their shy son Ange. But her happiness is shattered by another wave of deportations by the British that keep the young lovers apart. Based on the real lives of two Acadian families the novel is grounded in the historic facts of the Acadian expulsion.
