Heart of Goodness

Carolyne Van Der Meer
Heart of Goodness
In 1653, Marguerite Bourgeoys arrived in New France, determined to bring faith to the developing Ville-Marie community and education to the young women of the colony (now Montreal). Carolyne Van Der Meer delves into the heart and mind of Marguerite Bourgeoys and, through poetry, explores the hopes and challenges she faced as she established the Congr√©gation de Notre-Dame. These poems, originally written in English, have been translated by the author into Bourgeoys’ native French, thus bringing to life the aspirations of this extraordinary woman who changed history.
