Lady Marguerite lives a life most 17th-century French girls can only dream of: money, designer dresses, suitors, and a secure future. Except she can’t quite commit to a life of dull luxury and she suspects she may be falling for her best friend, Claude, a common smithy in the family’s steam forge. When Claude leaves for New France in search of a better life, Marguerite decides to follow him and test her suspicions of love–only the trip proves to be more harrowing than she anticipated. Love, adventure, and restitution await if she can survive the voyage.

Based on the true story of The Daughters of the King, Louis the XIV’s social program to settle the wilds of Canada with women of noble birth, Marguerite’s steampunk adventure follows in the footsteps of nearly one thousand brave women and girls who were rewarded handsomely for trekking across the pirate infested Atlantic to create a home in a strange land.

 

My Review

🌕🌕🌕🌕🌑

So…  Let me start off by saying that in the beginning of the book I couldn't stand Marguerite.  She is an entitled little brat.  However, with that being said we get to watch some of the most outstanding character growth I've ever seen.  Marguerite has now gained my respect and love.  I loved the steampunk aspects and the time era – the world building was done beautifully. Outil, a bot was my favorite character I'd have to say.  The journey propelled you through each chapter and kept those pages turning well into the night.  Overall, I thought it was a great read that I'll definitely be thinking about for a while. 

Huge thanks to Rockstar Book Tours and Leigh Statham for my gifted copy!
