Daughter of the King (Hardcover)
"Chaput beautifully conjures the haunting fate of the French Huguenots, and the indelible human drive to fight for love and freedom." -Allison Pataki, New York Times bestselling author of The Magnificent Lives of Marjorie Post
Fierce Protestant Isabelle has lost everything at the hands of brutal nobles who thieve and persecute their way into the king's good graces. Shaken and desperate after a vicious attack, she accepts a deal as her only means of survival: become one of the king's honorary daughters. She can set sail to Canada to build the population in the struggling colony with a dowry from the king, protection, money, and power over her future. This opportunity also comes with sacrifice. Though Isabelle bleeds Protestantism, committed to a fight that lives deep in her bones, she must convert to the religion that killed her family and burned her flesh.
In the wilds of Canada, a newly Catholic Isabelle grapples with the desire to reignite her quest, while a love triangle rife with secrets and betrayal forces her to decide who she really is-and if she's willing to risk her life once again in the name of freedom.
Based on the incredible true story of the French orphans who settled French Canada, Daughter of the King is the sweeping tale of a heroine born of desperation. Kerry Chaput brings the past to life, expertly weaving a gripping saga with vivid historical details. Jump back in time on a thrilling adventure with this heart pounding trilogy.
