4.0 out of 5 stars Really Good, 27 April 2008
By 
This review is from: Mercy (Paperback)
Set in early 18th Century America, The inhabitants of Mercy Carter's town are taken hostage by American Indians, who were working with the French, on a 300 trek across the freezing North to Canada. Many of the hostages perish along the way but Mercy and several others wind up in a Native American village and begin to become 'adopted' sons and daughters to the native families. The story is based on the true happenings between the English settlers and the French Canadians

The book considers the historical fact that when this did happen in the past and when the 'hostages' were free, some didnt return to their past lives with the remnants of their past families, but remained with their new Mohwak or Huron families. Mercy was a real person, perhaps her story was not the same as what the book tells but we know that she did remain with her Indian family.

The book was really good, the characters were strong and brave. Although i read it in one sitting i really liked the story, the context and the way it was written.
