Book 8: The Temptation of Angélique (1966)

Spring in Canada comes later, and only then Angélique with her family sets out back to the coast to find out how their Protestant’s colonists from La Rochelle managed to spend the winter. However the simple plans are disrupted by the constant battles between the baptized "for-French" Algonquin Indians and the Iroquois Indians who hate the French immigrants on their territory. The target of the summer war expeditions is always simple - get a maximum quantity of English scalps, what means in practice that the settlements of the first farmers will be plundered, slaughtered and ignited one after another. It is in those places, where Angélique found herself and where she has the opportunity get to know personally the different aspects of the personalities of those hard English Puritans. Eventually, with strange guides and at the cost of a few shipwrecks on the barge in the Casco Bay, she manage to get back to Gouldsboro – the husband’s settlement on the coast. However, a coincidence brings her into the path an old friend from the time of her solitary European life. Angélique is exposed to this prepared and unusual reunion that aims to launch a dispute between husbands and to open up the possibility of partial ups and downs of the development of their complicated relationship.
