Après que son village ait été anéanti par une tribu ennemie, Geneviève Aubuchon, une orpheline abénaquise, est adoptée par une famille québécoise. Elle s'inquiète beaucoup au sujet de son frère aîné, qui s'est joint à une autre tribu abénaquise afin d'aider les Français à défendre la colonie contre les Anglais. Le pire est à venir puisque la bataille des plaines d'Abraham semble imminente.

After her village was destroyed by an enemy tribe, Geneviève Aubuchon, an Abenaki orphan, is adopted by a Quebec family. She worries a lot about her older brother, who joined another Abenaki tribe to help the French defend the colony against the English. But the worst is yet to come as the Battle of the Plains of Abraham seems imminent.

The students in her class, who of course thought of her only as their teacher, saw each step in the creation of a new work. They heard the unillustrated story, saw the roughs, and were the first to view the finished book.Maxine lives with her husband William and their two Yorkies, Ceilidh and Moon. They divide their year between Port Stanley, Ontario on Lake Erie, and Newman s Cove, Newfoundland, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Both are wonderful places to write.
