Review by Becky Cyr:
I am not Acadian by birth, in fact my heritage is English. My family ancestry has been in Canada for as long as my Acadian in-laws, and although my ancestors stayed primarily in Ontario, I can’t help think of how our histories may have crossed in the formation of our wonderful country, Canada. As I read “The Acadian Miracle, 50th Anniversary Addition” Revised by M.M. LeBlanc, I was astounded by how little I was taught of this part of Canadian History. I do remember learning about Acadians, but it was through a very English lens. I was moved to tears upon reading the name of my husbands’ 9-times great-grandfather, Pierre Sire and of the persistent political tug-of-war that tore Acadia apart time and time again. “The Acadian Miracle” is an important book for anyone wanting to visualize life as an Acadian.
