Publisher's Summary

Laure Beausejour has grown up in a dormitory in Paris surrounded by prostitutes, the insane, and other forgotten women. Despite numerous hardships, she dreams of using her needlework skills to become a seamstress and one day marry a nobleman. But in 1669, Laure's dreams are cruelly dashed when she is sent across the Atlantic to New France as a fille du roi.
Powerful and haunting, Bride of New France is a remarkable tale of a French girl and her struggle to survive in a brutal time and place.

Tedium!

Bride of New France sounded so interesting. The story had such possibilities. But a really tedious telling of the story combined with a narration in a monotone almost completely devoid of feeling created a boring experience. I stuck with it thinking that improvement must surely come and because I was truly interested in the settlement of Canada. But alas, after hours of disappointment I realized that I really did not care how the book ended; I simply could not stand any more of this truly boring rendition.

Hauntingly beautiful!

I was captivated from beginning to end. I am an American of French Canadian ancestry. I loved the story, the characters and the truthful look at the courage of these young women coming to a strange world.
