Book one of The Creoles Series, captivating novels from bestselling authors Gilbert and Lynn Morris, introduces Chantel Fontaine. Readers follow Chantel through the streets and swamps of Louisiana as she falls in love, faces the loss of both her parents, and searches for the baby sister she thought was lost forever.

The culture of the citizens of nineteenth-century New Orleans was as varied and intriguing as their complexions-French, Spanish, African, and American. As the layers of these cultures intertwine, a rich, entertaining story of love and faith emerges. It is the early 1800s, and Chantel Fountaine, has finished her education at the Ursuline Convent. But the trials and tragedies that preceded her graduation have put her Christian beliefs to the test.

The authors' unique perspective and the distinctive cultural setting make this novel come alive in the minds and hearts of readers.

User Review  - Erin - Goodreads

This book is decent, but it lacked the pull and electric storyline I expected from Gilbert Morris. It seems to be much more simply written than some of his other works, but I would still recommend it. Read full review
