Circle of Silver by Maxine Trottier

Book Description

It is 1760, and Lord MacNeil decides that the way to make a man of his 13-year-old son, John, is to bring him along from England to Canada. He knows that John, with his expert drawing skills, will make an excellent cartographer of Canada's wilderness; an activity that will keep him away from the dangers of war.On the eve of John's departure, his beloved twin sister, Jane, gives him her treasured silver ring. As John wears this circle of silver, it becomes the link to everything he loves: his homeland, the frontier, and his newly-made friends - especially the intriguing Marie Roy. Set against a backdrop of tradition, growing unrest, and the looming danger of Pontiac's Rebellion, John's experiences in a young Canada do indeed carry him toward manhood.The first in a trilogy, A Circle of Silver brings history, memory, and hope together in a seamless adventure of discovery.
