Reviews - What do customers think about The Captive Princess: A Story Based on the Life of Young Pocahontas (Daughters of the Faith)?

Excellent Research, Beautiful Story  Jan 16, 2010
Lawton has written several of these historical stories based on the childhood of characters in history. They could easily become "bigger than life" or full of sentimental overkill. Instead, Mrs. Lawton pulls each reader into the heart of the story and the person,and I have come to trust her impeccable research even as I am swept along in the story. My favorite stories as a child were those of Native Americans, and this is one of my favorites of the Daughters of Faith series.

I have now given several sets of these books to elementary libraries and encourage you to do the same. If you're looking for stories to trust, remain true to the historical person, and will be a gift for a young reader, do get these books. With so much "revisionist" history now going around, this one you can trust that remains solidly in truth and historical aspects.

The real Pocahontas - a captivating read  Jul 12, 2008
Everyone knows the story of Pocahontas - or at least "a" story of Pocahontas. Pocahontas WAS intelligent, capable, curious, and brave, but real life isn't as palatable or black-and-white as the Disney-ized version of the story.

Wendy Lawton continues her "Daughters of Faith" series with "The Captive Princess," a respectful portrayal of Pocahontas and the people of her world, a story that recognizes the ambiguity of life. As the great Powhatan's daughter, Pocahontas enjoys both special privilege and responsibility within her family and her tribe. When Englishmen come to the Powhatans' shores, Pocahontas is both curious and wary. She knows there will be eagerness and distrust from both those new and those familiar to the land. She works to bring peace and trust between the two, but is betrayed. As she struggles to come to terms with the "grayness" all she has experienced, Pocahontas learns, in the words of a minister who befriends her, that "we battle between what we long to be and what we fall back into." When Pocahontas learns to accept God's forgiveness, she learns how to forgive herself as well.

The Captive Princess is a must read for fans of the "Daughters of Faith" series and new readers alike. Wendy Lawton's well-researched attention to historic details and her always present glossary of terms make "The Captive Princess" the perfect choice for a fun read or as part of a larger study of American history.
The Captive Princess  Jun 27, 2008
Most of us studied Pocahontas and the Jamestown settlement in American History. I enjoyed going back in time with Wendy Lawton and getting to know the young Pocahontas even better. Lawton does an excellent job bringing the young princess to life and makes learning the customs and language of the Powhatan Indians and the early Jamestown settlers an enjoyable experience. History has never been so fun. Pocahontas' compassion, spirit and faith will inspire you.
