I love the story I couldn't stop reading and due to insomnia I was reading in the early hours of the morning which is not normal for me, but I just didn't want to put the book down. I have read a couple of books dealing with the French Acadian people and them being forcibly resettled and this gives another insight into what happened. I really love how the language barrier proved to be no real barrier in the end, yes it did make things interesting but there are things that transcend language such as music.
When Justine is shipwrecked it is her song that draws Nobel to her. He can hear a beautiful sound and recognises the tune but not the words. I love how even though both worship the same God they can worship in their own languages. Thankfully there is a citizen who knows French in the village although she has a hidden agenda that becomes clear as the book progresses. I would like to say more about the story and what happens but being its a novella I don't want to give the story line or hidden gems away.
This is my favourite novella I have read so far this year.
Justine Battineaux, her family, and whoever was left in her village is being moved away. All Acadians. On the way to wherever they are being moved, there's a shipwreck and she survives. Lost, alone, fighting for her life—she makes it to shore. A stranger in a strange land.
Noble Prescott here's the voice of an angel...or mermaid, as he's traveling home with a load of wares for their mercantile. Instead, they find a lone woman struggling. She speaks French. He doesn't. And yet, they find a common thread in their lives. God.
This takes place at a time of wars and mistrust. There are spies...some in their midst. A woman who appears out of nowhere...is not readily accepted by all. I really enjoyed this story.
American, Noble Prescott hears the hymns, sang in angelic voice and rescues the badly injured mermaid from the rocky, oyster shell covered beach. He takes her home where his mother slowly nurses her back to health. With God and the Bible in common, the two quickly overcome the language barrier.
There is a spy in their midst, is it the French-speaking Justine? Will their budding romance survive the trial? No spoilers from me. A big story is packed in this little novella! A must read!
I found this short story by Darlene Franklin to be a fun, quick read. She packs a lot of content into a short easy to enjoy story! Justine finds herself the only survivor of a shipwreck. She never loses her faith in God, even though she is in a strange land and unable to speak the language. She is rescue by a handsome, caring man who brings her to his family to heal. In the midst of her stay she is accused of being a spy for the French! She and her rescuer 'Noble' have an immediate connection that is undeniable. I would definitely recommend this wonderful story!
