Bride of New France is a haunting story of a courageous young woman, shipped over from France to the wilderness of Canada in the 17th century. Beautifully written, Suzanne Desrochers uses the rich detail of the time period to tell us of Laure s remarkable bravery and determination and to remind us again of the resilience of our forbearers. --Kathleen Grissom, author of The Kitchen House"
