Cécile Murat, fille du capitaine Pierre Murat, se trouve, par le destin, orpheline dans un petit village de la région de la baie Sainte-Marie dès 1800. Accueillie par Casimir et Martha LeBlanc comme leur propre enfant, Cécile grandit, épouse un nommé Janie (Jean-Baptiste) Melanson, devient mère de famille, et, par ses observations immortalisées dans son «Journal», elle nous laisse un souvenir de l'Acadien et de l'Acadie d'autrefois.
