Soon after moving into the old ancestral house recently purchased by her father, young Alix makes an intriguing discovery. Deep within a dusty hiding place, she finds a letter written 200 hundred years ago! Reading it, she makes the acquaintance of a boy called Mathieu Martin, his father François and his mother Marie. She also learns about the tragic history of the Acadians, who were forced from their homes and deported by the British authorities in 1755. But the letter conceals a far greater surprise.

Her characters are enticing and their emotions are vividly conveyed to all who delve into the story. Nous reviendrons en Acadie! is entertaining and informative.
