    Rating this 4 stars as per relative to this being a children s book.I reread this as an adult because, A I m researching my own filles du roi heritage, and B I remember liking it as a young girl It WAS great on so many levels While the writing is hugely simplistic, as per required by a 13 year old girls diary, Trottier was really able to hit home some of the emotional aspects I felt actual pain as Helene had to say goodbye to France, to her childhood home, the lambs that she won t see grow Rating this 4 stars as per relative to this being a children s book.I reread this as an adult because, A I m researching my own filles du roi heritage, and B I remember liking it as a young girl It WAS great on so many levels While the writing is hugely simplistic, as per required by a 13 year old girls diary, Trottier was really able to hit home some of the emotional aspects I felt actual pain as Helene had to say goodbye to France, to her childhood home, the lambs that she won t see grow to be sheep, the frogs in the wood It isn t enough to say Helene migrated from France to Canada, but that she left a home where she, her father and sister roamed the grounds and knew intimately Where she would never see the walls of her bedroom again This loss was conveyed extre...

    I ve been meaning to read this book since I was about 11 years old Back then, I was obsessed with the Dear America series I fell in love with the books in the third grade after reading the My America trilogy about the Revolutionary War I m proud to be born and bred in the U.S.A., so I was always annoyed by the fact that my Canadian born mother and my Canadian ancestors had had absolutely nothing to do with the exciting events I loved to read about in these diaries.Coincidentally, my best fr I ve been meaning to read this book since I was about 11 years old Back then, I was obsessed with the Dear America series I fell in love with the books in the third grade after reading the My America trilogy about the Revolutionary War I m proud to be born ...
