British and French settlers in 1753 Canada live in separate villages with no interaction until a chance meeting between two young women, one from each community.
LibraryThing member SherylHendrix
I enjoyed this story of a young Englishwoman and Frenchwoman who strike up an unlikely friendship in the midst of conflict between their two countries. Set in Canada in what is now Nova Scotia and was at the time Acadia, the book introduces two families whose lives will be forever intertwined

through what at the times seems a terrible fate and nonetheless is redeemed through the course of the next several books. A good read.
