"Acadia" and those that referred to it as "Nova Scotia" slowly stopped intermingling. Acadian parents would punish any child caught speaking English, and these unyielding people kept dreaming of a new home that offered hope, the hope this land once promised. Robert Tallant writes with a historically accurate and sympathetic voice. He speaks about the tragic expulsion of the Acadians and focuses on the circumstances that led up to the Acadians' forced exodus to many French-speaking places, including a haven some Acadians or Cajuns found called Louisiana.
