Description

Eva and Gabe explore the golden forest of their seaside Maine town, unknowingly tracing the footsteps of two teens, Evangeline and Gabriel, who once lived in the idyllic wooded village of Acadia more than one hundred years ago. On the day that Evangeline and Gabriel were to be wed, their village was attacked and the two were separated. And now, in the present, Gabe has mysteriously disappeared from Eva.

A dreamlike, loose retelling of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s famous love poem “Evangeline,” Anxious Hearts tells an epic tale of unrequited love and the hope that true love can be found.

“The blustery landscapes and their intimate connection to the characters’ plight are reminiscent . . . of certain scenes spent in seaside forests by a similarly thwarted vampire/human teen couple. It is [the] power to evoke both admired historical fiction and hot teen literature that will prove this novel’s success.” –School Library Journal

“Shaw’s creative telling of these dual sagas will keep the reader turning pages to discover how and when the lives of these characters will converge.” –ALAN Review
