Obtained: Through Goodreads First Reads I have to say, this just isn't the book for me. When I first read the summary, I was expecting a story of a woman who had a depressing hard life that fell in love with someone she's not supposed to because of society's standards. I normally like reading historical fiction books, but I just couldn't get into Bride of New France. I couldn't relate to Laure and felt that everything bad that happened to her; she had it coming since she wasn't exactly the nicest person. Bride of New France also had a very slow start and the ending fell short for me.
