Bless This House tells the story of Elizabeth, who moves with her Planter family from New England to Nova Scotia's Annapolis Valley in 1762. The area's previous settlers, the Acadians, have been deported by the English, forced to leave their homes and farms behind. Elizabeth's family is given one of those farms.

Elizabeth is not happy about the move to Nova Scotia, and she has a bad feeling about her new home, feelings that change only when she sees how beautiful a place it is. But soon, her misgivings return, when she realizes that someone is stealing their eggs and milk. And much worse, the Acadians - who must surely despise all Planters - are imprisoned in the barracks nearby.

Welcome to Our Canadian Girl

In this wonderful series you will get to know Elizabeth and many other strong, smart, and courageous girls. They come from different places and times in Canadian history, and each of them meets some ordinary—and extraordinary—challenges in her day-to-day life.
