subject matter, the experiences of captives taken by Native American tribes are than noteworthy, but I was transfixed by Green s depiction of the fur trade s female practitioners This little known chapter was entirely new to me and I love how it afforded Green the opportunity to explore authentic feminine fortitude without inventing an anachronistic exception to eighteen century norms.The novel affords great insight into the lives of Quebec s French colonists and I found the atmospheric details quite comprehensive I also liked the cross cultural notes Green was able to explore by virtue of Catherine s unique heritage and complex emotional relationships.The religious themes of the novel are moderate, but I felt they paired nicely with Catherine s struggle to identify both her place and individual purpose Green plays with ideas of guilt, familial obligation, and personal happiness and while I m not particularly religious, I found the material compelling and intensely creative flag 9

this one But to be honest, this book really didn t feel like it had a plot for the first three quarters of it The first 45% was almost entirely backstory, and therefore the story took seemingly forever to get going The ending was very sweet, and I was happy to see some reconciliation between certain characters I also loved the themes of faith The final few scenes were very powerful Although I feel like they could have been far impactful if spread throughout the book instead of hinted at here and there until the end The characters also felt rather flat to me I didn t even like them, no less empathize with them until than halfway through the book and even then, I still didn t really like Simon view spoiler I m sorry, dude You are a manipulator, and I am very mad that you let Catherine start to fall in love with you again even though you were married Which you somehow neglected to tell her until well on your journey hide spoiler I feel like Catherine had the potential to be a really fabulous character, but honestly, she just wasn t there Also, the lack of romance while not necessarily a bad thing, I suppose really threw me, as I was expecting one until a plot twist about 65% through the book Overall, I think this had the potential to be a really amazing piece of fiction But unfortunately, it just didn t hit the mark for me.FTC disclosure I received a

from Catherine s point of view and allowed the reader to understand her feelings, struggles, and actions I enjoyed discovering about how the different Indian tribes were allied with the French and or British, the different practices that occurred between these groups such as the ransoming of British captives by the French Canadians for servants , and the rationale for why certain groups performed particular acts Jocelyn Green did a marvelous job with her research and then crafting a story that allowed the reader to sympathize with all parties involved The characters were also well developed and multi dimensional with unique experiences, flaws, and strengths that added to the story s development Catherine was an intriguing character who suffered much but also learned to trust God and to find her identity in Him instead of struggling with her mixed heritage Oftentimes historical fiction leans heavily on romance for the plot, and I really appreciated that romance was not the defining feature of this novel Instead, the author pointed to the fact that happiness, contentment, and satisfaction are found first in God, not in another person So while my heart was left somewhat broken at
