The Cacouna Caves and the Hidden Mural

Adult; General Fiction (including literary and historical); (Market)

Deanna Aynsworth’s older brother, Matthew, finds himself staring at a seventeenth-century painting of a sea captain who looks just like him. Then, before Deanna’s eyes, Matthew vanishes without a trace. A year later, still struggling with the fact that her brother has gone missing, Deanna decides to get away for the summer. She and her boyfriend, Justin, rent a room in a B&B near Cacouna village. They discover a seventeenth-century diary by Wasaweg, a young Mi’gmaq woman, who fell in love with a shipwrecked Frenchman in New France. She and Matthieu lived on Cacouna Island—until the day he, too, mysteriously disappeared. As Deanna reads Wasaweg’s journal, she finds consolation in the young Mi’gmaq woman’s perceptions and expression. Deanna also learns firsthand the uncanny truth of what really happened to her brother. Burgess has been compared to Diana Gabaldon for her spell-binding time travel novels.

I just finished reading THE CACOUNA CAVES AND THE HIDDEN MURAL, it is wonderful! So powerful, riveting and deep. I think it might be my favourite of all of her books. This story had all the elements and insights that make the genre of historical fantasy so riveting. A compelling, edge-of-your-seat page turner! And since the novel is set in two times -- the twenty-first century and the seventeenth century -- it also provides lots of great social commentary about the current state of the planet, to which I'm sure many people will totally relate.

First review of Burgess' latest novel THE CACOUNA CAVES AND THE HIDDEN MURAL

"Barbara wrote the novel over four to five years and fact checked it with the Mi’gmaq and academicians, although it is historical fantasy.

The story is set in two time periods, New France and modern day Quebec.

Barbara was interviewed about the book live on CBC in Quebec City last summer."
