As a Goodreads giveaway winner, I received an advanced copy of this book.

Suzanne Desrochers’ historical fiction, Bride of New France, tells the tale of Laure Beausejour, a selfish peasant girl who makes lace and dreams of leaving her peasant life to become a famous seamstress. Despite her own wishes, Laure is selected to join the filles du roi and embarks on a life changing journey. Laure is sent across the ocean to fullfill the Kings command for her to marry one of the waiting settlers and help populate the new colony.

This book offers a glimpse into the role women played in settling and establishing Canada. The author incorporated many historical and societal details that I found fascinating. However, the characters and plot left something to be desired.
