    1. The King s Daughter tells the story of Jeanne, an orphaned French girl who is provided for by French royalty and sent to a convent High spirited Jeanne is unsuited for the cloistered life, and is eventually chosen to go to New France the Canadian frontier to become a bride of one of the frontiersmen This is the first book I ve read set in untamed Canada and I enjoyed it It was nice reading a pioneer story that was changed up a little from the usual American frontier stories Jeanne is a spunky an [...]


    2. Worldview European centric view of New FranceAge Read Aloud 10 yrs Independent Reader 12 yrs Setting Location New FranceTime Period 1672Review This is the story of a king s daughter sent to New France to marry It is the beautiful story of an insecure young girl growing into a competent woman Qualities that were frowned upon in Europe become virtues in her rough new life among the settlers, natives and coureur de bois It is, of course, a typical sweeping love story Jeanne is swept into a marriage [...]


    3. Review from student in grade 9 french It was okay Most students couldn t understand it It was a waste of French class However that could be due to our teacher as much as the book We ll never know I could never figure out the target audience for Jeanne Fille du Roy I cannot see any historical fiction reader and definitely no normal teenager praising this bundle of European Canadian Pioneer common experiences I can only think that it was solely written to accompany the grade 9 and 10 sciences huma [...]


    4. I must say the book was quite interesting however for me, the coincidences of Thierry coming to nouvelle france annoyed me cause it was so unrealistic I felt that the constant meeting of new boyfriends made me want to yell at her RUN AWAY WITH PIERRE OR THIERRY, LEAVE THAT SELFISH ROUVILLE WITH HIS DEPRESSED CHILDREN However, the book was definitely better than anticipated D


    5. Just finished rereading one of my favourite books as a child youth In fact as an adult, not remembering the title or author searched for it and had to buy it I reread if every now and then I love stories with heroines with spirit and gumption.I read the English translation as by French is than a little rustic.




    6. Remember the Revenant With the brutally of the wild north and the trappers who lived and hunted in its forests Remember Anne of Green Gables With her dreamy hard working attitude and loveable stubbornness If you liked both of those stories or aspects of both this is it, this is the perfect book for you Jeanne is a spirited French orphan girl raised in a convent, who is handed a chance at adventure when she is chosen to be a King s Daughter The wild of New France needs brides and the King is will [...]


    7. I did enjoy aspects of it Good pacing, interesting characters, decent writing But there were significant issues There were a few sloppy anachronisms which were a bit jarring automatons as an adjective for a story in the 17th century I bear in mind that this is a translation, but oi It did also strain credulity a bit her story was set up well, but I would have loved to have seen struggle, adversity in Jeanne coming to grips with a totally new environment and situation in life There was a lot of [...]


    8. L histoire des filles du roi m intrigue J ai aim comment l auteure crit, mais vers la fin il y a avait des v nements peu probables De plus, comme un autre critique sur ce site a dit, les personnage autochtones sont 2D.


    9. This book was a cute historical fiction But it was also an emotional roller coaster You were scared, happy, sad at the same time I really loved it.


    10. This is the first book I ve read by Suzanne Martel, but I certainly hope it won t be the last, and I d like to read them in French That would be even authentic.During the time of Louis XIV, a young orphaned girl from a good family has lost her grandfather, the last member of her family Jeanne Chatel is placed in an orphanage run by nuns Soon after she gets the news that she has been selected as a King s daughter This means that she will be sailing for the French colony of New France, Canada as [...]


    11. Jeanne lives in the woods with her grandfather until he dies Then she is sent to an orphanage run by nuns Jeanne is a spirited, fiesty girl who does not fit with the nuns ideas of what a woman is and does She is excited when she is told she will move to Canada as that sounds exciting than life as a nun On board the ship, she is taught the uses of various herbs so she can be of use in the colony as a healer Her friend, who also came along, is slated to marry her older relative, already living i [...]


    12.

    13. I remember, back in elementary school, having to pick a historical figure to do a project on Because I was young and stupid, trying to get out of doing work Me now is cringing I swear , I said If it s a group of people, I don t have to writ their personal details right So I picked the Filles du Roi And that led me to this book.Which I purchased for myself years later, because I enjoyed it so much I loved reading about Jeanne and all her adventures, and cheered when she had her happy ending Not t [...]


    14. I was surprised by how much I actually enjoyed this book considering that it was based of historical events of girls, who where orphans, being chosen to go over seas from france to canada at the time named new france , to start a life there, get married, have children and help populate the new lands Definitively not a hard read for someone who s first language is french This novel was written well and kept me interested throughout the entire story and got me imagining what would happen next 2 ou [...]


    15. This is one of those books I will never tire of reading even though I read it at least once a year This story is sweet, real and I just absolutely love it I don t know why I can t describe why I just do Maybe it s because it takes place in Quebec Maybe it s because it s a historical fiction novel Maybe it s because the characters are lovely and most of all NOT perfect I seriously don t know The only thing I do know is that when I don t know which book to pick up next and I just want something sh [...]


    16. J avais lu ce livre l cole, en secondaire 3 J en avais gard un souvenir tonn , comme une r v lation les femmes qui ont fond ce pays pouvaient donc ressembler cela tre aussi fortes, aussi courageuses Plusieurs ann es apr s, pr s avoir lu et cout l anthropologue Serge Bouchard, j y suis retourn e C est toujours un r cit fascinant Action, amour, r ves et d sillusions, j aime la fa on dont Jeanne sait se mettre au diapason de la r alit D ailleurs ma fille porte un second nom, je vous laisse deviner [...]


    17. This is a Young Adult book the main character is a young woman who ends up in a convent when her grandfather dies and then is sent as a King s Daughter to the New World of French Canada to be a bride of one of the male settlers there I read it in English altho it was originally written in french It seemed to me to be a bit dated but I can t put my finger on why I would definitely recommend it to a young reader who likes historical novels.


    18. Une magnifique histoire qui permet de d couvrir la r alit des colons de la Nouvelle France Un bon livre pour les adolescents 13 14 ans et plus et jeunes adultes On est r ellement captiv par l histoire et le personnage de Jeanne Mais l criture laisse d sirer, le style est trop simple mon go t On ressent certains trous dans l histoire et le ton est assez na f, mais on pardonne parce qu on en apprend beaucoup sur la vie en Nouvelle France Donc pas 10 10, mais un 7 10.


    19. This book was on the curriculum in Alberta for grade 8 French Language Arts I ve wanted to read it for at least 10 years I am working on Ancestry and I count 16 King s Daughters in my ancestry, this book was an informative and fun read The story is good and keeps the reader s attention Many hardships of New France pioneers are not described but one gets a good idea of what it could have been like back then.


    20. I first read this book when I picked in up from my local bookstore in middle school after it was recommended to me by the employee That was about 15 years ago and since then I ve read it at least a dozen times or This is one of those books that I read either after I ve had trouble finding a good book to read or I want to read a quick story that I know that I will enjoy Its very well written and its a wonderful story I can t wait until I have kids and can share it with them.


    21. The King s Daughter was another of my recent reads that looked like a young adult novel but was a little intense for, say, a 13 year old such as when the family dog s throat gets slit so it can t alert the Iroquois to their location I m not 13 though so I found the book entertaining a little bit lighter and less realistic than some true accounts of early Canadian settlement I ve read, but still pleasantly gritty.


    22. An absolute favorite I first read this when I was younger, but reading it and now, I realize how amazing the writing is Regardless, if it is a translated book Whoever did the translating did awesome I love it for the historical value, the adventure, and the realness of the characters The falling in love part is believable and sweet Definite read.


    23. I just loved the story Read it first time when I was 12 and I re read it last year A good account for youngsters on Quebec debutes Although I really was craving for details and descriptions, even when I was 12 The author could have gone further in her storytelling.


    24. Je suis litt ralement tomb e en amour avec ces personnages simples et attachants Ce roman de veut tre un bon miroir de l poque de la Nouvelle France avec ses preuves, ses drames et sa dure r alit.


    25. The first time I read this book was in 6th or 7th grade in French class I was so absorbed in it, I totally took it home even though we weren t supposed to so I could finish it faster I was so happy to find it again in French.


    26. This book was really good I liked even if it was for school and I don t know if I will read French books or if they will give me school books I have to see but overall it was really good and I liked it.
