Rarely does a novel catch my attention as much as this one. As a west coast girl from birth, I was ignorant of how other cities and states were established. Ms. Green’s extensive research was an eye-opening glimpse into the people who settled in New Orleans. These brave souls battled Native Americans, the British, and each other, to create what is now a thriving city.
Her characters lived through unimaginable trials and circumstances. The story of Julianne and Marc-Paul is woven into the rich history of Louisiana. The faith element is believable without being heavy-handed.
Fair warning – don’t start reading this book unless you have time to finish it.
