Note: 
Like her namesake, Esther, a French Jew, survived by hiding her real identity. This fast-paced historical novel is based on the life of Esther Brandeau, the first Jew to set foot in New France. Fleshing out the few facts known about Esther, including her frequent disguises as a boy, the author spins a rousing, romantic yarn that breathes life into French society in the 1700's. The characterization is especially strong.
