A riveting tale…
Greig’s mesmerizing latest is an emotionally moving, intriguing novel about both a woman’s search for answers to long-buried family secrets and a poignant tale of love, loss, and courage. When the headstrong Gabriel decided to join Samuel Champlain’s 1608 expedition to establish a settlement at Quebec against his family’s wishes, he had no idea he would never see them again. Trying to cope with her nephew’s disappearance, Elizabeth Gharsia is thrown into a web of old family secrets after her father’s death. Told in in alternating timeline and voices, Greig tells Elizabeth, Gabriel, and Luis’s stories with great understanding, diving deep into their emotions of grief, guilt, love, loss, and connection. Greig’s characters are flawed and relatable, and the atmospheric setting, meticulously researched detail, and gripping plotting keep the pages turning all the way to the heartening ending. Lovers of finely constructed literary historical fiction will be greatly rewarded.
