Stephen Marot and Catherine Compeaux have been friends since childhood. Stephen has always loved Catherine but Catherine's heart belongs to another. When Catherine's brother is tragically killed her father forces her to marry Stephen and flee France for the safety of Quebec. Catherine continually makes her unhappiness know to Stephen while he gently continues to love her. Will she ever lose interest in returning to France or to her "love" Gaston? Could it be that perhaps she may have more feelings for Stephen that she is willing to admit? Will the secret Stephen's keeping destroy him? Join Stephen and Catherine as they journey together in some good life lessons. Throw in a missionary priest and some Indians in a primitive wilderness setting and you have what it takes for a great historical.
