Here’s another First Line Fridays hosted by Hoarding Books! It’s a fun way to share good books and spread the love of words on the page.
About the book:
After her aunt’s death, Brigitte Marchal finds herself alone in Montreal. Desperate to flee a loathsome suitor and find her long-absent, fur-trader father, she disguises herself as a young man and travels west with the voyageurs’ brigade. But her inexperience and inhibitions soon betray her secret.
René Dufour yields to the unwelcome position of shielding Brigitte, but for how long? He cannot keep her true identity a secret forever. Torn between his obligations to the North West Company and his promise to honor his family’s legacy, René is forced to make a choice: one that may prove more painful than he imagined.
As Brigitte adjusts to life in the rugged frontier, she struggles to reconcile her feelings for René with her desire to find her father. Greater still is her crisis of faith when she encounters a type of mysticism found along the shores of Lake Superior.
Brigitte Marchal gripped the handle of her wicker basket tighter, wishing to stall, but the nun beckoned her without looking back.
