Book Description

"A reminder that ultimately, fate may be refused, but never denied." Melanie Johnston
........
"Their fields were fertile, their animals multiplied. With muskrat and fish from the Rivière Secrète, and wild grapes for wine, the habitants of Paradis lived oblivious to the world beyond the Marais Foncé. Marry, have babes, eat and drink well, and dance before a bonfire--These were the goals of Paradis."
But every generation has a dream and Isidore Reno, fourth Seigneur of Paradis, dreamed of escaping Paradis.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreakingly real July 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The most heartbreakingly real book in this six part saga, we are reminded that one of the greatest weapons we possess are our words, which once wielded, cannot be taken back. Pride and resentment keep two soul mates away from each other, as they live their lives apart, but depressingly close together. A reminder that ultimately, fate may be refused, but never denied.

In this story the outside world finally comes to Paradise and with it new complications. Another intriguing tale with a nice mixture of history thrown in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Heartbreak, tragedy, and drama March 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderful series of novellas. Heartbreak, tragedy, and drama. Nothing is ever easy in Paradis. In this volume, the outside world finally intrudes, leading to more heartbreak. Every installment leaves me wanting more and this one is no exception.

More About the Author

For one hundred sixty years our American midwest lived under the King of France. New France stretched from Canada's Atlantic coast, west into Michigan and Wisconsin, and south to the Gulf of Mexico. 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.

As I researched The Last Lord of Paradise I grew to love these French Canadian habitants. Strict Roman Catholics, isolated in the wilderness of North America, somehow they always found a reason to celebrate life. Even after New France was surrendered to the British in 1760, the habitant's never lost their French flair, and their zeal to enjoy life remained.

That is the attitude I tried to portray throughout the generations in this Kindle family saga.

I hope you enjoy The Last Lord of Paradise, Complete Series. And please don't forget to leave a review. I'd love to know what you think.
