“I have just finished reading Daughter of Conflict and my first thought on closing it was “Wow”. Thank you so much for writing such a powerful and emotion-inspiring book! I have read many accounts of the early history of Canadian settlers, including your own ancestors, but never one told from a very personal perspective such as this. It recounts in a very visceral way the struggles, fear and experience of the conflicts between the French, English and First Nation peoples in their search for acceptance, dominance, understanding and retention of culture and identity. I wasn’t able to put it down and I will need to re-read it to comprehend fully all the details and characters, whose lives you so vividly portray. Sincere congratulations on this book. I can only wish for more!” – Linda Halliday
