Moody Publishers Review + Giveaway {pt. 1}!!




    In the past I've really enjoyed The Daughters of the Faith Series, so I was extremely thrilled to have the opportunity to review The Captive Princess from Moody Publishers!  This is a softcover book containing 142 pages and 12 chapters, and is the seventh book in The Daughers of the Faith Series. 

    The Captive Princess is the story of the famous Indian girl, Pocohantas.  The most favored child of her father, the great Powhatan, and a girl filled with curiousity and questions, Pocohantas loves exploring, and the adventures she shares with her sister Matachanna, brother Nantaquas, and friend Nokomias.  

    Soon she experiences new adventures as she observes the "tassuntassuk" (meaning "strangers")- the English that arrived on her people's shores to build the colony of Jamestown- and that differ so greatly from her tribe.  She begins an unusual friendship with one of the Englishmen- Captain John Smith- after saving him from being killed by her tribe.

    During the period of time that John Smith has to sail back to England from having been injured, Pocohantas is taken prisoner after being traded for a copper pot and beads.  Freedom will never be acheived, unless the required payment be made.  The situtation brings Pocohantas to the awareness that she needs to be cleansed and forgiven... only by Jesus' blood.   
   
    I love how Wendy Lawton included different Powhatan words throughtout this fictional biography (with a glossary at the end), giving a glimpse into the language of the tribe.  She not brings Pocohantas to life, but also excellently portrays what Indian life was really like.  This is a wonderful gem for your home library! 

    And be sure to stay tuned for pt. 2 of this review!!
