Seton's Description:

Placement Assessment

Jeanne Chatel has always dreamed of adventure. So when the eighteen-year-old orphan is summoned to sail from France to the wilds of North America to become a king's daughter and marry a French settler, she doesn't hesitate. Her new husband is not the dashing military man she has dreamed of, but a trapper with two small children who lives in a small cabin in the woods. With her husband away trapping much of the time, Jeanne faces danger daily, but the bravery and spirit that brought her to this wild place never fail her, and she soon learns to be truly at home in her new land. Recommended for ages 12 and up. Black and white. Copyright 1994. 5 x 7.5 inches. Soft cover. 232 pp.

Comment by Dr. Mary Kay Clark: A well-written book, a winner of an award by the Ontario Arts Council. Accurate presentation of life in Quebec or New France in 1672. Very interesting to read about friendly Huron Indians who help in the daily lives of the French. Basically the story of an 18 year old girl, orginally an orphan raised in a convent and sent to the New World to marry a widower with two small children. Very interesting story and details of frontier life in a trapping community. Good family values and development of good relationship between two people who learned to be independent in the wilds yet dependent on each other. One thing lacking: total ignoring of their French Catholic background, Catholic culture. No reference to God and dependence on God, never a mention of prayer or asking Him for help, even when under attack by Iroquois Indians

Reviewer: Maryrose

Truely an incredible book. I read The King's Daughter at least three times and I know that I will read it again! Full of action, romance, and suspence, it's one of the great.
