    eBook Suzanne Desrochers ´ ´ Bride of New France ePUB ☆ Bride of ePUB ↠ bride kindle, france ebok, Bride of kindle, Bride of New France PDF/EPUBThis novel came with a National Bestseller label and a glowing recommendation by Joseph Boyden one of my favourite authors but I was disappointedThe book tells the story of Laure Beausejour one of the filles du roi sent by royal decree to New France between 1663 and 1673 to become marriage partners to would be colonists and so expand the European population The daughter of street entertainers she is incarcerated in the Hospice de la Salpetriere which houses thousands of women prostitutes the indigent and the insane She is chosen to be one of the King's Daughters and is sent to the New World where she is married to a man who abandons her so she must survive the winter by herself in a half built shack Her only friend is Deskaheh an Irouois manCharacterization is one flaw in the book As the protagonist Laure is not especially well developed The author in an afterword describes Laure as A dreamer and a pragmatist with an insurmountable

It spoke to me from the book shelf The woman's profile so mysterious and dark and then edged all around like a cut out gilt paper snowflake I had to pick it up And listen to the first uote inside But what shall I tell you of migrations when in this empty sky the precise ghosts of departed summer birds still trace old signs Leonard Cohen The Sparrows In Let Us Compare MythologiesPoetic and beautiful?
