This brand new edition of the book contains updated historical facts, an amazing new cover, and extra punk for your steam machines

Lady Marguerite lives a life most 17th-century French girls can only dream of: money, designer dresses, suitors, and a secure future. Except she can't quite commit to a life of dull luxury and she suspects she may be falling for her best friend, Claude, a common smithy in the family's steam forge. When Claude leaves for New France in search of a better life, Marguerite decides to follow him and test her suspicions of love--only the trip proves to be more harrowing than she anticipated. Love, adventure, and restitution await if she can survive the voyage.

Based on the true story of The Daughters of the King, Louis the XIV's social program to settle the wilds of Canada with women of noble birth, Marguerite's steampunk adventure follows in the footsteps of nearly one thousand brave women and girls who were rewarded handsomely for trekking across the pirate infested Atlantic to create a home in a strange land.
