An historical novel arranged in thirty chapters, with an author's note at the end.
"It is 1756 and much is at stake. The intense and perpetual struggle between Britain and France dominates the landscape as national and religious loyalties come to the fore in both Old World and New. Set in Western Europe, Nova Scotia, New Brunswick and Quebec, Bearer of the Chosen Seed, written by Cameron Royce Jess, is a tale of human survival and personal triumph spanning centuries of great upheaval.
The central character Marie is caught up in events which initially extend beyond her understanding and control. She is “guarded” by ruthless Huguenot agents as forces inimical to her survival close upon her. Populated by highly memorable characters, Bearer of the Chosen Seed will resonate with the reader for a very long time."
