"An outstanding novel on the Acadian expulsion of 1755. The subject is not easy to write about. In order to do it successfully, the writer must have considerable knowledge and, more than that, a true feeling for the Acadians so that they will appear as real people and not merely characters in a story. The author of Severine has succeeded amazingly. Her literary style is plain and correct and perfectly suited to its subject.”
E. Cran, reviewer for The Guardian, P.E.I.
"The historical novel Severine is a magnificent story. I felt as though I was part of that exiled group who suffered so much but still managed to get back to their country, if not their old homesteads. The author very neatly pinpoints the attitudes of the Church. Anyone who grew up in a Catholic communnity knows what it was like. Congratulations to the author for telling it like it was and sometimes still is."
