In the Hospice de la Salpetriere which houses thousands of women prostitutes the indigent and the insane She is chosen to be one of the King s Daughters and is sent to the New World where she is married to a man who abandons her so she must survive the winter by herself in a half built shack Her only Battle Scars: A Story of War and All That Follows friend is Deskaheh an Irouois manCharacterization is onelaw in the book As the protagonist Laure is not especially well developed The author in an afterword describes Laure as A dreamer and a pragmatist with an insurmountable spirit and precocious determination 296 but what stands out is her selfishness She convinces Madeleine her devoted but The Economics Of Business Enterprise frail and innocentriend to accompany her on her journey the conseuences are tragically predictable Such selfishness makes her an unlikable character What Desrochers describes as precocious determination is really naivety a naivety which combined with selfishness and stubbornness endangers both herself and others several times throughout the novel Further Laure behaves inconsistently at the beginning she easily escapes her prison to visit Mireille Langlois in the hospital Incidentally Mireille is someone to whom she had never spoken so even Laure s best Comparative Contract Law, Second Edition friend wonders why she was risking so muchor Mireille whom she disliked 22 However when Laure is chosen to go on a one way transport to Canada a punishment thought by many to be worse than death 296 she makes no attempt to escape her Breakfast with Anglo fateOther charactersare no better Madeleine is so angelic as to be unbelievable Her one transgression is vowing she would cause trouble in the dormitory if she were left behind 81 when Laure is banished to Canada With a One Big Damn Puzzler few exceptions those in authority are mean spirited people with little sympathyor the suffering of others Even the cliche of the noble savage is embodied in DeskahehThe book was begun as an MA thesis project and has stayed as such it is a thesis than a novel It catalogues the struggles of life in Salpetriere and in the struggling colony Much of the plot seems contrived to use as much research as possible There is a great deal of exposition this happened and then this happened The result is that the reader is indifferent to the outcome of Laure s trials and tribulations Presumably the historical information is accurate although the description of the climb to the top of Mount Royal in Ville Marie Montreal gave me pauseThe use of the present tense Landscapes of Communism for historicaliction is uestionable That tense is supposed to suggest that events are happening in real time but that is clearly not the case so the choice is confusingAnother weakness is the extensive use of romance NORJAK fiction cliches the beautiful orphan trapped by circumstance and condemned to a loveless marriage seeks love elsewhere The book gives a picture of the harsh realities of life in an inhospitable environment both in Paris and in New France as a work ofiction however it is less successfulPlease check out my blog and ollow me

This Book B I or why this book b I excited about the concept of this book but uite disappointed It could have been so much I The Outside found the main character unlikeable and completely self

Desrochers is set in Paris and New France in the latter part of the 17th century As the novel opens the reader is introduced to Laure Beausejour a young woman living at Paris notorious Hospice de la Saltpetriere Skilled at embroidery Laure dreams of becoming a renowned seamstress and marrying well This dream however is shattered when Laure is sent to New France as one of King Louis XIV s illes du roi King s girl a group of young women sent to the French colony to marry and raise a amily The greatest strength of this novel lies with Desrochers rich imagery which leaves the reader with an astounding sense of time and place These vivid descriptions are especially pronounced when the setting of the novel shifts to New France Indeed the reader can almost eel the cold air and hear the wind whistling through Laure s cabin during her Melvin Menchers News Reporting and Writing first winter in the colony In her new surroundings her sense her isolation and loneliness is palpable Through Laure the reader gets to experience the hardshipsaced by the illes du roi and the colonist in general as they tried to tame the harsh and unforgiving environment in which they settled Although luidly written the manner in which this story is told makes it difficult to connect with Laure A connection with the protagonist is also made difficult due to her lack of charisma I was interested in Laure s
