Fables: The La Diablesse

There are stories you hear, most times from grandparents or older members of your family particularly when you’re leaving home at night. 

Some just tell you to drive safely, some tell you not to go at all. Some elders will tell you the story of a peculiar woman with just enough detail to make your heart sink a bit. Some think it’s fiction; nothing but mythology, but some people believe very strongly in her abilities. 

She is the La Diablesse. 

Rooted in our folklore, Historian and Author Gerard Besson tells the story of the La Diablesse.
