“Acadian Passage, a tale of flight and rendezvous, love and loss, is rich with detail. The story of Acadia and the beauty of the place are vividly drawn as the tale unfolds. Readers will savor this seldom revisited corner of history, now brought to light.”
—Elizabeth Pomeroy, historian and author of John Muir, A Naturalist in Southern California
“An enjoyable blend of history, romance and anthropology. Register brings the idyllic- then brutal- story of the Acadians to life.”
—Steven A. LeBlanc, author of Constant Battles: The Myth of the Peaceful, Noble Savage
Jeanne Gleason Register is descended from French Acadians through her mother Marie Daigle. She began writing ACADIAN PASSAGE after she retired from teaching history and eleven years as Head of Mayfield Senior School. She graduated from Wellesley College and lives in Altadena, California.
