About The Book
“In her fifth book, a sweeping historical novel, Elise Dallemagne-Cookson takes us into the world of French Canada, where explorers, adventurers, churchmen, and settlers live in a world of constant struggle, destined not to end until England emerges triumphant in the Seven Years’ War. We see all this through the eyes of Marie Grandin, whose tangled life begins in 1668 in Orleans, France, where a talented young girl flees a broken romance to go to Canada. There she finds love, war, Indians, adventurers, and friends like La Salle, the great explorer of the American interior, and Count Frontenac, among many others. It’s a tale of high adventure and romance, told against a backdrop that is one of the most fascinating chapters in North American history. And Marie herself is an unforgettable heroine.” John Tebbel, Historian, author of The Battle for North America. “Dallemagne-Cookson took me to another world and I feel I have a much stronger sense of early Canada and historical events…along with Marie Grandin and other historical figures. The author rose to the challenge of giving the reader a sense of what life really might have been like back then. The characters are intriguing and compelling.” Carl Waldman, author of Atlas of the North American Indian. ..”.interesting and educational. The women who were “Sent by the King” were extraordinarily brave and strong. They left homes and country to explore and civilize an unknown world; and the journey lasted a lifetime. The author’s autobiographical books qualify her to write of such brave women. She followed in her ancestors’ footsteps and led a life of adventure and danger from the United States to Africa, Europe, the South Pacific, and South America. Read them all!” Joyce Ryker-Bryson Ray, editor (retired), Governmental Research, University of Oregon.
