Laura's Story is a beautiful and enduring tale of a heroic Acadian woman struggling to survive in rural Nova Scotia from the 1930s through the following decades. The family's trial and triumphs aptly illustrate the circumstances many of the people of this region endured during that time. Life's surprises weave throughout the book, and the resilience of the characters is truly inspiring. As the family members develop and their stories weave and unfold, we see firsthand what courage and perseverance mean, and we are moved by the true meaning of family and love.
