Defiant Destiny

About the Book

When King George II orders the Acadians, descendants of 17th-century French colonists, expelled from their Nova Scotian land, Arielle Douville, an Acadian healer, reluctantly agrees to translate for the captain of the Virginia Militia, Byron Barclay.

Arielle has always despised everything English until Byron’s unexpected promise to keep the families together in the American Colonies challenges her heart.

But when the pair are aboard the ship bound for the Colonies, the Acadians seize Byron and take control.

Now Arielle must choose: side with her people or fight for the inevitable new way of Acadian life and earn the right to discover if the growing passions between her and Byron is love.
