There's a book by Maxine Trottier based on the diary of one of the thousand or so young girls who were sent to New France in the mid seventeenth century as brides for the soldiers there.

It's called Alone In an Untamed Land, the Filles du Roi Diary of Helene St. Onge.

Has anyone seen this, or anything on this subject?

Thanks so much
