Calico Captive

Calico CaptiveCalico Captive by Elizabeth George Speare
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Well-written historical fiction for young people. There aren't many stories set in colonial America during the Seven Years/French and Indian War. I loved this story when I was elementary-age. At that time, the early part of the story detailing Miriam's life with Native Americans was my favorite part of the book. (I blame my "Little House on the Prairie" fandom for that.) Decades later, it is Miriam's life in Montreal as a household servant and seamstress that captures my interest. (There's a handsome French fur trader in Montreal.)
