Louisiana, 1704, and France is clinging on to a swampy corner of the New World. Into this situation arrive Elizabeth Savaret and Auguste Guichard. Soon both fall for the charismatic Jean-Claude Babelon, Elizabeth as his wife, Auguste as his friend. But Babelon has little regard for loyalty, love, and trust. When his treachery forces Elizabeth and Auguste to start playing by his rules, the consequences are devastating.

    " Nothing special. Picked it up from the library on a whim because I like historical fiction, but the writing was overblown and the plot not interesting enough. "

    " I would have made a veeeery bad colonial settler. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Rebecca | 2/4/2011

    " The story started out well, however about 1/2 way through the book the story began to drag and become repetitious. The last 1/4 of the book seemed disconnected from the rest of the book. It almost seemed like the author tried to combine 2 books into one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 George | 12/16/2010

    " Enjoyed many of the passages but did not find the characters compelling. Settlement of the New World conceived as childbirth in which all participants are equally savaged. Acknowledges the essays of Michel de Montaigne, which the author applies without the humor and wit they encompass. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lee | 12/6/2010

    " This wasn't an easy 'airplane read'. The author clearly communicated the difficulty of settling the Louisiana territory and the horrible management of the Mississippi Company by Law and the French. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beth | 8/29/2010

    " Outstanding novel in every sense of the word. A beautifully worked masterpiece. Look forward to savoring Clarke's other two novels. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marlene | 8/27/2010

    " While not guilty of 'purple prose', there are some definite shades of lavender here! But, still a good historical fiction - realistic in its depiction of the early Louisiana settlement. I learned something from the reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nina | 8/24/2010

    " Boring... both historical and hysterical. I spent most of the time wishing it would end already. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Eve | 7/8/2010

    " I should have loved this book. It has all my favorite elements, but man was it a chore to get through. Dull one dimensional characters with no redeeming qualities. A storyline that skipped big chucks of time leaving me scratching my head. Just a disappointing read... "
