Publisher Comments:

Listen for the Lark is a story of love, compassion, and survival in the American wilderness. This novel continues their writing of historical fiction based on their heritage and their connection to the Delaware Indians. Penelope Van Princis, a real life heroine, immigrated to New Amsterdam from the Netherlands in 1643, filled with the promises of the New World. Shipwrecked off the coast of New Jersey, she loses everything when Maqua Indians attack only hours after her arrival, leaving her physically and emotionally scarred. Having been left for dead, she survives with the Sanhican's help. While living among these compassionate Lenni Lenape, Penelope confronts her fears, accepts her husband's death, and begins creating a new life in a dangerous wilderness. Because of the attack, the fear of carrying a Maqua child haunts her pregnancy. Since she is constantly threatened, she questions God's love and doubts her purpose in the universe.
