Publisher Comments:

Seventeen-year-old Elizabeth Evans is the privileged and naive only child of prominent New Englanders, part of a group of Planters who settled in Nova Scotia following the deportation of the Acadian people. As a teenager, she is leading a carefree life in the Annapolis Valley, tending to her cows on the family farm, daydreaming by the brook, and resisting her mother's attempts to refine her manners and marry her off. She thinks nothing will ever change. But a stranger's arrival at Evans Hall, and a chance meeting with a mysterious Acadian girl in the woods nearby turn Elizabeth's carefree life upside down. And when she learns the truth about the history of the farm she loves so well, she knows nothing will ever be the same.
