Your skillful interweaving of past historical events and how these directly intertwined with Anne Marie and her descendants brought a whole new outlook in regards to Acadian history. It made me realise more than ever how courageous and steadfast these early pioneers were in their determination to keep what was justly theirs and ensure that all their descendants keep their rightful places in the historical archives. I was especially touched by a passage in your book, even more so of its implications (pages 27-28-29) Membertou’s baptism in 1610 …What a remarkable personage and what a legacy he left … his own “vital principle” continues today in the lives of his descendants.
Congratulations on your successful achievement in revisiting Anne Marie and keeping alive a heritage so dear and priceless...Thankfully, Yours,"
