Daughters of the Faith: ordinary girls who did extraordinary things for God.
On the eastern shores of the North American wilderness lives an Algonquin princess named Pocahontas, a curious 10-year-old who loves exploring the tidewater lands of her people. One day she encounters strangers, a group of people who look different from her own. She befriends them, and when her people come into conflict with these new settlers, Pocahontas courageously attempts to save a life by offering her own. Based on the true story of Pocahontas' early life.
Pocahontas has long been a favorite character of mine, and Wendy Lawton brings her to glorious life in The Captive Princess. Through Lawton's excellent research and vivid writing, Pocahontas walked out of the dense forest and into my heart. This book is a treasure!

I jumped at the chance to read Wendy Lawton's latest book, The Captive Princess, because of her previous stories. Again, she wove her literary magic. Always true to historical facts and able to infuse spiritual truths naturally, Wendy Lawton is a master storyteller.
-Donita K. Paul, author of popular Christian fantasy, including The DragonKeeper Chronicles
What a delightful insight into the life of Princess Pocahontas. I wanted to be her best friend and live the same adventure! From the first page to the last, The Captive Princess enchanted me.
