Book One, Defying the Crown Series

A gold medal winner in the Independent Publisher Awards

La Rochelle France, 1661. Fierce Protestant Isabelle is desperate to escape persecution by the Catholic King. Every day she defies the powers that threaten to destroy her — until she meets a handsome Catholic soldier who softens her will.

She fights off an attack by a nobleman, and the only way to save herself is to flee to Canada as a Daughter of the King. She can have money, protection, and a new life — if she betrays everything she believes in. 

Based on the true story of the French orphans who settled Canada, Daughter of the King is a sweeping tale of one young woman’s fight for true freedom.
