Brigitte Marchal disguises herself as a man to join Rene DuFour’s voyaguers on their journey west, the direction her father went. Brigitte faces danger if she remains in Montreal from a cruel suitor—she’d rather take her chances rowing the canoes on the dangerous rivers and lakes ahead, hoping to find her father.
Rene discovers her secret early in the journey and vows to protect her from the crew on the journey of months.
But the beautiful Brigitte captures the eye of many men in her search for her father—as the honorable Rene captures hers.
Musch has woven a mesmerizing tale that immerses readers into a dangerous adventure from the start. With believable and honest characters encountering situations true to the period, this suspenseful story captivated my attention and didn’t let go until the end.
Musch’s depth of research enabled her to transport readers back in time. I highly recommend this novel to lovers of historical romance.
