Journal Entry 1 by Cecilturtle from Ottawa, Ontario Canada on Wednesday, August 11, 2021
This is a beautifully written book with some extremely difficult scenes showing the harsh realities of Canada when Europeans first started to appear. The story depicts the war between Wendat and Haudenosaunee as group tries to manipulate the French and the English, themselves at war and themselves manipulating warring Indigenous nations.
Set in a background of harsh winters, unforgiving draughts and cruel revenges, this story could easily have become a horror boo. Yet, Boyden manages to capture also beauty, love, friendship, forgiveness and hope. Most unlikely alliances between a Jesuit and a Wendat Chief, a beautiful love story between an abducted Haudenosaunee girl and a Wendat boy, an enchanting Anishinaabe sorceress turn the murderous plot into a multifaceted epic tale full of wonder and grit.
Based on historical events, this book is also a great way to learn more about Canada's early history.

This book was bought at my local bookstore.
