I have an old copy of this, published in 1939 I was interested since my family is descended from Thomas Hayot one of the first 11 founding families of the New France arriving in 1638 As the Ayotte s spread all over Canada, New Brunswick and Maine, I was interested in the story and reading about the forts and relations with the Indians I believe Thomas son Jean Hayot would have been living during the time of the story, which is based on actual people, however the author who did take much information from letters that they have from the two main characters, Pierre de Bonaventure and Louise de Freneuse, who did in reality carry on a love affair which put the settlement into quite the panty twist I m enjoying it so far, but am glad I researched the premise some on the internet to weed fiction from fact
