Synopses & Reviews
In this adventure, Emily and Matt land in a small house near Quebec City in the mid-1600s. There they meet Marie, whose father is about to marry one of the filles du roi, the women the King of France is encouraging to go to Quebec to marry settlers. Marie's mother recently died of fever, and she doesn't want a new mother. When she runs away, Emily and Matt brave a blizzard to find her. Will they reach her in time? Frieda Wishinsky's engaging, historically accurate narrative and Dean Griffiths' artwork make this a rollicking read.
