“An Epic, Heartrending, Passionate Story.”
Torn between clashing empires and contentious families, Marie Lévesque fights to find a place in the unforgiving frontier of Canada. As a young woman, her life is just beginning. Her friendship with Pierre promises of something more. But their lives and the doomed fortress of Louisbourg are caught in the cross-hairs of the British navy, who promise to annihilate not only them but also their very way of life.
As empires collide, Marie and Pierre are catapulted into a world they do not understand—a world of spies, treason, and revenge. They must fight not only to survive the war, but also to stay together despite the forces that threaten to tear them apart forever.
This beautifully written, epic work of historical literary fiction, with the same feel as Outlander, is a must-read for any lover of historical fiction. The Displaced: Fall of a Fortress tells the story of ordinary people as they try to survive as French rule crumbles in Canada.
Stats, dates, flags, facts…
Don’t we see history in such impersonal ways? This book is different. It takes you into the heart of what it would be like to live through the barbaric wars of the colonial era, having your life and dreams torn apart by the tyranny of madmen. Walk the streets of an 18th-century French fortress and fall in love with the interesting characters just long enough to see their world come crashing down like a hailstorm of mortar and cannonfire. It seemed like a great idea to put the inhabitants of a small town inside the walls of Louisbourg, a fortress on the far east coast of what is now Cape Breton Island, Canada, but the presence of civilians and common-folk did not stop the British from unleashing hell over the heads of those unfortunate enough to be trapped there in this work of 18th-century historical fiction.
Will the love of Marie and Pierre endure? Will they hang onto their lives and their friends? Can they suffer every ill-conceived plan and all the bombardment which surrounds them?
Can they survive … could you?
Buy this book and throw away the boring history books. Don’t learn it; experience it.
