This is an excellent historical book, Based on a true story. These are books the guy in my house enjoyed also so are not just fiction for women but books even a man can read and be satisfied with.
Jane Kirkpatrick is a very gifted Award winning author and I have enjoyed every book of hers I have read. History comes alive as you read the pages of her books. She does an wonderful job of fleshing out historical facts She also includes historical notes and a list of suggested readings for further research if you desire to learn more.
This is the first in a series of three and I would highly suggest reading them in order. They are books you will read and learn from.
Her blog is worth visiting: http://www.janekirkpatrick.blogspot.com/
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!
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.
Every book of Jane Kirkpatrick gives you a very realistic view of early life in the west, from a woman's viewpoint. This book has lots of early women of the indian culture represented. She is my favorite NW author.
