The Pelican Bride

Genevieve Gaillain and her younger sister travel to America in the early 1700s in search of a husband in The Pelican Bride (Gulf Coast Chronicles) by Beth White. Once Genevieve meets Tristan Lanier, you can immediately tell they are meant to be with each other, but Genevieve did not come to America to just find a husband. She is actually looking to practice her faith without being persecuted for her beliefs.


I really thought the historical aspects of this book were great. I didn’t really know anything about this time period, and it was interesting to read about the relationship between the Native Americans and French during that time. The characters were likeable, and I was really interested in reading about them throughout the whole story. The only thing I had trouble with was keeping all of the names straight in this book. There were a lot of confusing French and Native American names that I struggled with. But overall, I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the others in this series.
