I won't give away too much except to say that the setting is quite different from the first book and that Charlie's gift will lead her on another adventure, this one quite personal.(less)

The poem chronicles the tragic separation of Evangeline from her lover Gabriel and her attempts to find him. In my book, Evangeline is a lavish Louisiana estate that little Gabriel Deveau disappeared from thirty years prior; the novel, like the poem, revolves around the protagonist’s attempts to discover what happened to the missing Gabriel. It’s a beautiful and unusual name—you’re lucky to have it! (less)
