Description
Longlisted for the Orange Prize and a New York Times Book Review Editor's Choice, this vividly detailed historical novel by the author of The Great Stink follows Elisabeth Savaret, a young woman sent with 22 others to the New World to be wives to the French settlers of Louisiana. Educated, independent, and highly skeptical that she will find happiness, Elisabeth falls passionately in love with the charismatic, ruthlessly ambitious soldier Jean-Claude, who also befriends Auguste, a cabin boy sent to live among the natives and report back to the French governor.

"Genuinely a story to lose yourself in, an intense and satisfying read."Times (London)
