Product Description

It is 1704 when Genevieve Gaillain and her sister board a French ship headed for the Louisiana colony as mail-order brides. Both have promised to marry one of the rough-and-tumble Canadian men in this New World in order to escape religious persecution in the Old World. Genevieve knows life won't be easy, but at least here she can establish a home and family without fear of beheading. But when she falls in love with Tristan Lanier, an expatriate cartographer whose courageous stand for fair treatment of native peoples has made him decidedly unpopular in the young colony, Genevieve realizes that even in this land of liberty one is not guaranteed peace. And a secret she harbors could mean the undoing of the colony itself.

    Pelican Bride is a tremendous book. It is a historical romance set in the early 1700's, when women crossed over from France to become brides of men at Fort Louis in the south. It is an enjoyable book with alot of history immersed throughout the book. It is a hard book to put down. There is alot of romance, suspense, secrets being kept, and adjustments to the new environment needing to be made. I can't wait to read the next book in the series!

    This was a beautifully written book. This was a time period that I don't read too many books about. This was the first time that I had ever heard of the Pelican brides. It was so nice to read a romance that was set in a different time period and place. I received this book from bookfun.org for a fair and honest opinion. I can't wait for her next book.

    I have to admit, I was drawn to this book by it's cover! Inside the cover you will find a love story during a period of history not often found in Christian fiction. I enjoyed following Genevieve Gaillain's story, from her first reactions to the Louisiana colony, to her struggles adapting to life in her new surroundings, and her relationship with the reclusive Tristan Lanier. The is a story anyone with a love of history would enjoy.

    An adventure into the birth of the Deep South

    This is a story of the founding of the Deep South - when it was still being fought over between the Natives, the French, and the British. It begins with the drama of traveling to the "new world" onboard a ship without any amenities - not our average "cruise ship" image! The group of women, known as the "Pelican brides" arrive at a place that is far from the image they imagined or were promised, and here the story takes off. It is full of drama, romance, and historical details that make you wonder how anyone survived such hard living. I fell in love with these women and couldn't stop reading until I learned how they each settled in to their new lives. The male characters are just as intriguing, although some are hard to like! I recommend this book to anyone that loves history. Although it is a romance, there is plenty of drama to keep anyone interested in the outcome of this brand new community in a world full of unrest and political instability. There are many lessons to learn as the characters struggle with their faith when circumstances want to push them away. The author paints a vivid picture of the environment and characters so you can capture the colors and smells prevalent in that atmosphere. I can't wait for the next installment in the Gulf Coast Chronicles.

    Beth White knows how to immerse you into the hard facts and real life or starting out in the new world. She doesn't sugar coat the trials and realities of fort life and surrounding native people. The history in this story really grabbed my attention and I appreciated the "note to the reader" in the back with the details of what was real and what she put into the story. A ship full of women coming to a new settlement/fort to become wives of the soldiers there. Not an ideal way to get to meet men! Beth writes the awkward but sweet romance between Genevieve and Tristan very well. They struggle with growing dangers and even enemies within their own ranks. All the while Genevieve hides a secret and Tristan hides a deep loss. This is a very historically rich and intriguing story dotted with sweet romance throughout.

    I received this book from bookfun.org for an honest review.
