A Novel of Early America
Joanna Higgins

When Eugenie de La Roque and her family flee the French Revolution for the wilderness of Pennsylvania, Hannah Kimbrell is chosen to help prepare for their arrival—leading to an unlikely friendship between the aristocrat and the Quaker. This novel is a loving portrait of early America, and a reminder that true nobility is more than a royal title.
