"The most powerful, compelling, important book I’ve read for a while. Tyler LeBlanc’s story of his family’s Acadian roots, the horrors of Le Grand Dérangement and their journey to a new home is meticulously researched, expertly written and as profoundly distressing as it is inspiring."
- James Mullinger, Editor-in-Chief, [EDIT] Magazine
"Acadian Driftwood was so engaging I blew through it like it was a summer blockbuster."
"Thanks to LeBlanc’s beautifully written book, brought alive in riveting detail, more of us will understand how the British tried to erase a people—the Acadians—from the landscape of the Atlantic region, and the horror these individuals experienced as their homesteads were destroyed and their families torn apart."
"LeBlanc draws readers in with well-written and gripping prose in the way you would expect from a fiction novel, but he adds an educational punch."
