"I stood naked and shivering, steeling myself against icy wavelets lapping at my toes. Before me, a golden sun rose above the jade current of a river called Le Détroit."
The Marquise Jeanne Reneau, 1766

"I did not expect my father's chateau. I could have lived in any of the homes I'd seen today without a complaint, but this? 
A muddy path between two leafy gardens led to a plank door propped against the opening. Stakes pounded into the ground and covered with lumpy clay, a thatched roof––it was a hut, from the Dark Ages. 
"Ce n'est que temporaire, Jeanne." Anton had gotten out of the cart and stood with arms open, ready to lift me out. 
I closed my eyes gulping down my revulsion. Anton said, it's only temporary, and Anton, was all that mattered. As long as I was with my husband, this hut was heaven. I opened my eyes and clasped my hands around his bronzed neck, as he lifted me out of the cart."  Jeanne, Generation One

Introduction

For more than one hundred sixty years our American midwest lived under the King of France. New France as it was called, stretched from Canada's Atlantic coast, west into Michigan and Wisconsin, and south to the Gulf of Mexico. First explored by fur trappers and Jesuit priests in the early 1600s, this vast territory was sparsely populated by French settlers called habitants. Surviving by nothing but their own hard work, clinging to their farms, their language, their Catholic faith, and the Seigneurial form of government--a peasant-lord relationship used in France, the descendants of these habitants remain today in places like Detroit, St. Louis, and New Orleans.

I come from a family of these French Canadian habitants, strict Roman Catholics, and yet such fun to be around. They worked hard and they were not rich, but through good times and bad they always found some reason to celebrate life. That is the attitude I tried to portray in my Kindle ebook series, THE LAST LORD OF PARADISE. I hope you enjoy all six books in this Family Saga, and please don't forget to leave a review. I'd love to know what you think.
