Item description for Winter Passage by Paul Raymond Cote...
Bordeaux, 1734. To honor a dying man's request, the Baron Jean Luc de Montigny sets sail with his young son for Qubec City, the gateway to France's North American colonies. Within hours of his arrival, he is swept into an ethical and emotional maelstrom when he meets a woman born in the French settlement who takes him on a journey through the tormented landscape of her past. And his. Both have suffered irreparable violence and are haunted by the ghosts of remorse and carnage. Amidst accusations of sorcery and infanticide, their passion drives them to defy the barriers that separate them. The course of events are further entangled by a surprise revelation that brings into play the destiny of a vast estate--and its bonded servants. The property's majordomo, a Senegalese slave, holds the key to the elusive fate of the estate and has his own story to tell.
