Stephen Marot's life changes drastically one night. He finds himself fleeing France for Quebec one night, and taking with him Catherine Compeaux as his wife. Catherine doesn't know why she is fleeing and why her father is agreeing to the marriage and making her leave her home and Gaston, the man she really loves. Life in Quebec is hard, dangerous and neither Stephen or Catherine know how to love each other and be honest with each other. At times you want to hate how Catherine treats her husband and other times you want to shake Stephen and tell him to "tell her the truth"!! ( )

Stephen Marot and Catherine Compeaux have been friends since childhood. Stephen has always loved Catherine but Catherine's heart belongs to another. When Catherine's brother is tragically killed her father forces her to marry Stephen and flee France for the safety of Quebec. Catherine continually makes her unhappiness know to Stephen while he gently continues to love her. Will she ever lose interest in returning to France or to her 'love' Gaston? Could it be that perhaps she may have more feelings for Stephen than she is willing to admit? Will the secret Stephen's keeping destroy him? Join Stephen and Catherine as they journey together in some good life lessons. Throw in a missionary priest and some Indians in a primitive wilderness setting and you have what it takes for a great historical. You'll want to stay home and read 'Away from Here'. ( )
