Set in the Canadian frontier during the turbulent years when France and Great Britain fought for control of the territory. Catherine Price was married to her British office on the same day Louise Robichaud married her French farmer. The two women met by accident in a forest meadow. Could their blooming friendship span a cultural divide steeped in hatred and suspicion?
Wonderful setting and history background to this story. Loved the rich descriptions of the area during this time. The characters are strong and likable, having missions the reader clearly understands and sympathizes with.
This is the first book in a series and it doesn't really end, it stops. The action, presumably, picks up with the next book. It is not a book to read as a stand alone novel. If you're not willing to invest in the series, this is probably not the best book for you. If you enjoy the saga of a full series, dig in!
I did not get this book from Christian Book Distributors but got the whole series second hand. I have to say the the first part of the book was a little slow getting into but I actually ended up getting hooked on this whole series and read them in less than a week because I had to find out what happens next. I would recommend that you give this a chance.
My first book by this great duo was The Centurians Wife ,( by they way should get a 10star rating ) so, led me to find other novels they had written . I have not been the least disappointed . The characters are discribed so well , it makes them come alive . Everything from the soldiers uniforms , to the houses are so detailed , I almost feel the chill of the winter weathers . I would love these to be made into movies .
