With A Cajun Journey, C. Marshall Turner has masterfully woven a tale of love, life, and heartbreak set in the depths of Louisiana Cajun country. Readers are introduced to Josephine Chauvin, a mother who must make a decision no mother should ever be faced with - save some of her children at the expense of others. Her daughter, Evangeline, shares her mother's concerns until their journey begins. Free from the troubles they left behind, Evangeline blossoms into a strong and independent young woman. The mysterious James enters their lives to help mend still-open wounds. Infusing side stories as varied as life in the foothills of North Carolina, the Korean War, and the Catholic church, the author has produced a beautiful story, with rich narratives and provocative descriptions of a place known for its joie de vivre.
