Synopsis

This package includes all four books of the Daughters of Faith Series Set
2: Almost Home, The Tinker's Daughter, Shadow of His Hand,
and The Captive Princess.

There are a few elements of the Daughters
of Faith Series that separate it from many other children's book biographies. First,
these books are about little girls. They are not biographies of the entire life
of these characters- these are stories about girls who made a difference while they
were still young. This enables the young girl readers to relate to the characters
more than they would if these characters had to wait until they were thirty or forty
before doing anything significant. Second, these stories are faith journeys. Lawton
gets inside the minds of these girls in order to portray their struggles to make
God an active part of their lives.

In Almost Home, the story features
the pilgrims' journey to America and of God's providence and provision in their
journey. Several of the characters mentioned in the story- Mary Chilton, Constance
Hopkins, and Elizabeth Tilley- were actual passengers on the Mayflower!
Mary Chilton was a young girl when she left her home in Holland and traveled to
America onboard the Mayflower with her parents. The journey was filled
with trials, joys, and some surprises, but when she reached the New World she experienced
a new life, a new freedom, and a new home. Wendy Lawton has taken the facts of the
pilgrims' journey to the New World, and from this information filled in personal
details to create a genuine and heart-warming story.

In The Tinker's
Daughter
, John Bunyan, author of Pilgrim's Progress, only mentioned
one of his children in his memoirs- Mary. Born blind, her story still intrigues
us today. Mary developed a fierce determination for independence despite her disability
after years of proving she was not hindered by her blindness. Only when she admitsshe
needs help does she tap into the Source of all strength.

In Shadow of
His Hand
, young Anita Dittman's world crumbles as Hitler begins his rise to
power in Germany, but because she's a Christian and only half-Jewish, Anita feels
sure she and her family are safe from "the Final Solution". She couldn't have been
more wrong. Shadow of His Hand is an inspirational young adult historical
fiction book based on the real-life story of Anita Dittman, a Holocaust survivor.
It follows her struggle against Nazi persecution and her growth in her relationship
with God through the worst of times.

In The Captive Princess, once
upon a time there was an Algonquin princess named Pocahontas, a curious 10-year-old
who loved exploring the tidewater lands of her people. One day she encounters strangers,
a group of people that look different from her own. She befriends them, and when
her people come into conflict with these new settlers, Pocahontas steps in to save
the life of one of them by offering her own. Based on the true story of Pocahontas'
early life.
