A thrilling escapade into the cathedral forests of the great Northwest. The excellent writing makes you feel as though you're seated in the canoe with Rene and Brigitte, paddling upriver, fleeing Brigitte's dissipated suitor, filled with the hope of finding her voyageur father. Brigitte can be impossibly naive, and she and Rene might have you raving at the pages for their inability to recognize their feelings for each other (why does everyone put up with Rene's selfish younger brother for so long?), but in the end, we get the HEA we desire. Naomi Musch is an author to watch.
Really enjoyed this. Unique time period and setting and an exiting plot with lots of twists and turns. At several points I thought "Did she really do that?" Also liked how the relationship developed between Brigitte and Rene,and how both tried to do the right thing and honor God. I really like a book that helps me feel like I am there, and this is one of them.
