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 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.

This book was quite enjoyable and quick to read. I enjoyed the pacing of the main romance as well as its time frame. I enjoy books that go beyond "I do" and explore some of the issues that couples face (even if this couple had more exciting issues to face than most of us). I'm also looking forward to the next book.

For a Christian historical fiction, it was not bad compared to most of them out there. It's obvious the author did a lot of historical research, and she doesn't shy away from taboo subjects. As can be expected, the romance parts are a little sappy, but not unbearable. I liked the overall plot and will read the next one for sure.
