By Colette Piat

En 1759, sur les plaines d'Abraham, près de Québec, se déroulent les terribles combats qui décideront du variety de l'Amérique du Nord. Cette terre sera-t-elle française ou anglaise?
En ces temps troublés, Louis de Préclair, chirurgien vivant à Québec, poursuit une correspondance avec sa sœur Marie, élevée en France, qui deviendra lectrice à l. a. cour de Versailles. Sans s'être jamais rencontrés, ils sont pourtant unis par une même admiration pour leur intrépide aïeule, Marie Arnault, «Fille du Roy». Ils se racontent leurs multiples aventures où ne manquent pas de les entraîner leur esprit d'indépendance et leur cœur généreux. Ainsi, ils s'écrivent sur l. a. découverte des Rocheuses, sur les amours libertines de Louis XV, sur les évasions de los angeles Bastille, sur les fêtes, les intrigues, les passions...
Leur destin exceptionnel les conduit tous deux à croiser les figures marquantes de ce temps: en Amérique, l'explorateur Pierre Gaultier de Varennes, seigneur de l. a. Vérendrye, et Antoine de los angeles Mothe Cadillac, fondateur de l. a. ville de Detroit; en France, Madame de Pompadour et Voltaire, ce dernier affichant un mépris considérable pour ces «quelques arpents de neige», ce vaste continent où se prépare une longue guerre.
Le martyre de l'Acadie, puis l'écrasement des colons honteusement abandonnés par los angeles cour de France semblent sonner le glas de los angeles Nouvelle-France. Mais croire en cela, ce serait ignorer ces milliers d'hommes et de femmes du Mississippi à Terre-Neuve qui, comme Louis et Marie, vont combattre avec un braveness rigid.
