Blending Cajun and Marine Corps cultures, A Cajun Life is a compelling tale of love, loss, grief, and recovery. Set in Berwick, Louisiana in the 1930’s – 1960’s, A Cajun Life is a beautiful coming-of-age story centered around Clovis Chiasson and his son, Jacques. Turner masterfully takes readers into the Pacific theater during World War II as Clovis and his fellow Marines engage the Japanese in the battle of Iwo Jima. The story follows intimate moments in the lives of Clovis, Jacques and other supporting characters as they all learn to live with hardship, overcome prejudice, and survive adversity by capturing the love that binds them together.
