I loved this book. Jane K. really weaves a beautiful quilt of history and relationships in her story of a wonderful Indian woman who marries a French Canadian . Marie, the woman, goes through many hardships and one great heartbreak in this book and makes you cheer for her all the way through.

This was a great book! The relationship with Marie and Pierre Dorion felt so real--it was not all happiness, but a lot of heartache mixed with the good. This book left me wanting to read the other books in the series. I highly recommend this!
