Dear Canada: Alone In an Untamed Land

Dear Canada: Alone In an Untamed Land

The Filles du Roi Diary of Helene St. Onge, Montreal 1666

Young Hélène St. Onge and her older sister Catherine are orphans. When King Louis XVI orders all the men in New France to marry, Catherine becomes a fille du roi, one of the many young women sent to the new world as brides. Hélène will accompany her on her long sea voyage and live with her sister's new family. But Catherine dies during the gruelling journey and Hélène finds herself alone in a strange new country.

New France is a far harsher place than she imagined, with bitter winters and the threat of attack from the Iroquois. Will the few friendships she made on the long journey enable her to survive?
