During the Great Expulsion of 1755, thousands of Acadiens were inhumanely torn from their homeland and exiled to various parts of the world. Marie and her family are no exception. After her family is ripped from their home and separated during deportation, Marie struggles to survive the brutality of the English soldiers. Malnourished, ill, and without hope, Marie cannot endure her naval prison much longer. Will she survive long enough to be reunited with her family?
