Just received word about a new book titled “Acadia Lost”, a novel. The author Anita Flanagan, aka A.M. Hodge had just visited our family website and wanted to tell us about her book that was recently published by Grand Oak Books. She explained in her e-mail that she had come to know some Theriault’s in Plymouth, Massachusetts some years ago.
The book tells a story that is often repeated as many of us would vouch. A family, whose present generation member is set on a course to find more about her Acadian ancestors, and to tell the story of their lives in 18th century Acadia.”…the novel is intended to add texture to the historical facts by fleshing out the kinds of things that the people of 18th century Nova Scotia experienced.”
I will certainly give the book a read. I thought you might be interested in doing the same. . There’s an excerpt from the book and a word from the author, on its website, www.acadialost.com.
