Driven by his great-grandfather's vow to make amends to the descendants of one wronged Acadian, Vesper Nimmo sets out from Boston for Nova Scotia's French Shore, one hundred and fifty years after the Acadian Deportation. There he finds his own "Evangeline"--the beautiful Rose à Charlitte--but discovers they cannot be together until both are freed from the burdens of the past.
Rose of Acadia is a moving story of how the past can be redeemed by action in the present.
