It is based on a true story. When explorer Captain Jacques Cartier returns to France in 1536 with stories of great wealth in Canada, SieurdeRoberval sets sail for the Canadian wilderness. Among his passengers are his niece Margurite; her serving lady, Damienne; and a stowaway, Marguerite's great love, Pierre. During the voyage Pierre is discovered and cast into the sea and Marguerite and Damienne are abandoned on the Isle of Demons. Miraculously, Pierre lives, swimming ashore into Marguerite's waiting arms. Thus begins the trio's fight for survival. As the newcomers battle the mosquitoes (the true demons of the island) and the natives, they struggle to find food and shelter, and their paradise becomes a prison from which there is no escape. The author has fleshed out Marguerte's story from several historical sources, altering it to be more hopeful but no less amazing.
Sorry i haven't been posting so much lately. I don't no why, i haven't been to busy but busy with boring things. Their are some fun things that i have started and done lately, but it is mostly with school. I am still reading Cecilia, so far it is good, i have to read the rest to see. You have to watch The secret life of bees, it is so good. Both sad and happy. The movie is so good. Brideshead Revisited, is a bit different, if you have heard of it or seen the movie than discard this. It has some parts where it is a bit weird, and some parts where you have to close your eyes, but it was well made and sad. Not the kind where the main characters die or anything, but regretful sadness on the characters side. I thought it was OK, not the best, but it was okish good.
Something new: I started writing HAIKU's. Its the kind of poem's that Japanese or others now write. Have you heard of them? It is suppose to be short like three lines, and only 17 syllables. But the point is to paint a mental image.
I really like this Haiku, written by, Buson
the whole sky in a wide field of flowers one tulip.
