$14.95

A gusty August morning … two children spot sails on the horizon … foreign soldiers enter their village. Johnston holds the reader close with this moving tale. The main characters, Marie and Charles, are fictional, but the story is not. It is based on well-documented historical facts about the 1755 removal of Acadians from Grand-Pré. Into the Wind presents that well-known event in a fresh way. It makes for a poignant, suspenseful novel about how two kids and a village deal with forces and events far beyondtheir control.
