Description : Born and raised in Troyes, France, in 1653 Marguerite Bourgeoys came as a new recruit to de Maisonneuve's tiny and beleaguered settlement of Ville-Marie, founded in 1642 as a Christian missionary society. These early years in New France marked a special period in her life. Firmly committed to the belief that the world would be a better place if people learned to understand one another, she worked to build a better church and a better society, especially for women and children. Marguerite Bourgeoys's life story teaches us about tolerance and compassion, ideals that are no less important now than three centuries ago.

Description : Marte-Marie, orphaned and homeless in France, had nothing to prevent her from accepting an invitation from Jeanne Mance to join the settlement on the island of Montreal in New France. From the moment of her arrival at the starving, beleaguered fortress of Ville-Marie, Marte-Marie has to confront situations that test her physical and emotional strength to the limit, but also bring her great happiness. Struggling to establish a farm and raise her ever-growing family in her new environment, Marte-Marie must also contend with isolation, Iroquois raids, incompetent French officials, a husband who is away more than he is home, and her own evaluation and doubts about her role in the New World. In this book she recounts the stories of her fight to survive in the tiny settlement that grew into one of the greatest cities in Canada.
