In 1704 the French colony of Louisiana needs wives for the struggling settlers and Elisabeth and twenty-three other girls are dispatched to satisfy the request. The skeptical bride soon falls in love with her charismatic and ruthlessly ambitious soldier-husband, Jean-Claude, a passion which is shared by an abandoned cabin boy, Auguste, who has also fallen under the spell of the dashing Jean-Claude. When in time Jean-Claude betrays them both, the two find themselves bound together in ways they never anticipated.

I make it a point to finish reading every book I start, no matter how bad it is, but this one, I just refuse to suffer through.

I really enjoy books of that involve settlers in the New World, but the prose, the descriptions.. it was all too much. To me, this book is painful to read.
