From the Author
Ransom's Mark is another story of a real girl who made a difference. Author Wendy Lawton grew up fascinated by history. She craved stories about girls like herself, but was disappointed to find that historical accounts of children were rare. When she found a child story it was usually about a courageous boy.
This series for girls in the 8 - 12 year old middle grades offers those rare stories with characters who are real just what girls love. Daughters of the Faith are true-life heroes who range in age from the mature ten-year-old Mary Bunyan to 14-year-old Olive Oatman.
