    -----Darrell Bourque is a Professor of Emeritus in English at the University of Louisiana Lafayette. Poet Laureate for Louisiana 2009-2011 “I just finished reading Belair Cove and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was struck that Belair Cove is like so many places in the Louisiana we live in, places that are being erased from the landscape but places that hold important family histories. Bristol, Pointe Noir, Frilot Cove and many other geographies are like this one you create as the setting of the story of these Fontenots and Vidrines and their neighbors. Angelique, on the other hand, is one of those indelible characters that is central to so many lives in Acadiana--- a strong, capable, enduring woman who hold families and family histories together, a staple of the Cajun culture. Belair Cove is a romance in the truest sense of the word and particularly a Louisiana romance with open passages to what is dark and foreboding in our collective histories---a romance with the shadow figure... More > prominent and forceful in a story about courage and good-sense, industry and perseverance. And thanks for a good read.”< Less

    I absolutely loved this book. The author presents the story as if you are present in Belair Cove. Once you finish the story, you are longing for more. A must read!!!

    Just finished reading this book. It is awesome! The story captures your attention from the first pages on. The way the author chose to weave the story into being keeps the reader wanting more. I had difficulty putting the book down. One feels as though they have been taken back in time and is living in the community and the lives of the characters. Belair Cove is a MUST READ for anyone with Cajun/French heritage or who loves a deep abiding romance story.

    An awesome novel, very well written and a wonderful story. The fact that much of it is based on actual events allows the reader to have a glimple into the everyday life of a place and time that one does not often have the opportunity to see. The descriptive language used by the author allows you to be there ----- without being there.
