"Bride of New France is the best piece of historical fiction I've read in a long time." -Telegraph-Journal (Saint John, New Brunswick)

Laure Beauséjour 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.
