Main Street Books welcome Meredith Brown, who writes under the pen name C. Marshall Turner, to the store for a signing of her novel, A Cajun Journey.
With A Cajun Journey, Brown 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.
Meredith Brown was born and raised near New Orleans. When not writing, the author enjoys cooking Louisiana cuisine, researching Louisiana's rich history and culture, and supporting Marion Military Institute and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
