Catherine's Cadeau

By Ann Davidson and Terry M Thibodeaux

When Monique LeBlanc disappears from Nova Scotia, her cousin Michelle is panic-stricken. Their summer vacation has taken an ominous turn, and a search begins. At the site of Monique's disappearance in Grand-Pre Historic Park, police find a picture of her mother, Catherine, who passed away years ago, near Evangeline's statue.

Michelle knows that Monique is visiting the park to honor the dream she shared with her mother of visiting their Canadian homeland. What she doesn't know is that Monique has gone back in time to her ancestors' exile, actually living through the horrific deportation of thousands of Acadians to Louisiana in 1755.

ANN DAVIDSON grew up in Port Williams, Nova Scotia, just a few miles from Grand-Pre. She was formerly Ann McKinnon. She lives in Upton, Massachusetts.



TERRY M. THIBODEAUX was born into a large Cajun family in Southwest Louisiana, where he also attended college. After a stint in graduate school in Mississippi, he has lived and worked in Huntsville, Texas, for twenty years.
