Meet writer Ben Farmer when he comes to Octavia Books for a reading and signing of EVANGELINE, his brilliant debut novel of the epic love story and harrowing journey from Nova Scotia to New Orleans in pre-Revolutionary America inspired by Longfellow's poem. Henry Wadsworth Longfellow published “Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie” in 1847 and it remains his most popular and enduring work. While author Ben Farmer faithfully incorporates the essential elements of the epic poem, EVANGELINE , the novel, emerges as magnificent work of narrative fiction - artfully blending history, romance, adventure with an unforgettable character portraits. It is truly a singular achievement - rich in detail and panoramic in scope. "Ben Farmer brings a legend to life in EVANGELINE, evoking grace and panache the travails of the Acadians in mid-18th century America from Nova Scotia to New Orleans. Farmer is a wonderful storyteller, and readers won’t soon forget this tale of love and fortitude. Simply riveting." –Keith Donohue, New York Times bestelling author of THE STOLEN CHILD and ANGELS OF DESTRUCTION (OctaviaBooks)
