  1. I added this book to my to read shelf after reading another one of Trottier s books and being impressed by her lyricism and delicate storytelling Sister to the Wolf is a beautiful retelling of 18th century life in Canada and the northern USA I really enjoyed Trottier s characterization of both Celile and Lesharo They were multi faceted characters who exhibited than just the status quo of the typical YA character Their friendship and romance was very well developed, and it had an emotional depth [...]

  3. At first, I really liked this It goes from Quebec to Detroit and is very rich in historical details regarding French trappers, forts, the Miami Indians, and the Pawnee Halfway into it tho, I realized something Nothing interesting was happening Cecile and her father and an young Indian man travel to a fort Life at the fort sucks They move outside the fort Cecile cooks, cleans, does laundry, babysits the most demonic children, and is a total pushover Meanwhile, there is a mine is bigger than yours [...]


  4. well done, realistic, and compelling historical fiction.i enjoyed the details of life in 1700s quebec and detroit i liked both the heroine and her father, which is nice because so many fictional parents are awful there was a cross section of believable characters from the time period, including french settlers, various indian tribes, and soldiers i loved the local priest, who handed out severe penances with a barely concealed gleecommended for the younger teens and up, for some scenes of violenc [...]


  5. I love this book I just love the unbreakable bond between Lesharo and Cecile Throughout the whole book, you just know that Edmond can t really come between them Then there s the whole issue of racism, the ever present problem that divides the white man from the indian This book is so powerful to me, I can t even describe it Maybe if I go read it again, I can do better.

  10. I read this book for the first time many years ago, and loved it Sister to the wolf is just an unforgettable story that has stuck with me throughout the years I think of it often, especially when I am learning about Canadian history the first nations and the fur trade especially Cecile is a wonderful main character, I love her strong headed female will power and loyalty Robert and Edmund are both great supporting characters, and the little boys are such cuties My favourite of course is Lesharo, [...]


  11. I was not a huge fan of this book The religion part of it was very pluralistic Cecile is Catholic and the guy she falls in love with is an Indian who worships his own gods Towards the end of the book, they do mention his interest in God, but that s quickly followed up by Cecile telling him that she will only share about her God if Lesharo the indian will continue to share with her about his Can anyone say King Ahab Also, iIf my daughter did half the things the girl in this book did, we d be havi [...]


  12. I thought this book was an amazing read It was very captivating and I had trouble putting it down I loved the character of Cecile because of her kind nature and her very interesting attitude It seems as though a ton of research was put into this book by the author which made it very believable and realistic The romance between Cecile and Leshero was a very interesting and exciting relationship to read about I also loved learning about the culture of the natives and the french Canadians in the 17 [...]


  13. I picked this up thinking it would be an okay book, but boy was I wrong It was such a good storyline, with some great messages The only thing that I didn t like was that the POV was a little strange It s like, it would switch from third person to first person to another first person, but stay all in the same chapter and format I didn t really like that But other than that, it was amazing


  14. The history, slavery, and attire described in this book gave it flavor to the unique almost twisted telling of beauty and the beast You have Lesharo, a captured and enslaved Indian boy and Cecil, a free and jovial character in the book who frees Lesharo The book contains humor with Cecil s father and shows Lesharo quickly venture out of his shell The plot has an ending that screams a sequel.


  15. Okai first thought when I had to choose this for an L.A project I said great I won t remember a single thing one sentence in to it But as I read I knpinda liked it I guess I am kinda liking romance novels now But I m coming slowly to it cause I kept forgetting in some parts But I loved this book and I hope you do too


  16. This book was amazing , I checked it out from the library thinking it would just be okay and something to read when I ran out of other books Boy was I wrong I absolutely loved it It was a very good storyline and had some great messages This would be good for YA which it s intended for and adults alike to read.


  17. This was a very interesting and well paced historical fiction about the French colonizing Canada and the trading between the French and Indians I appreciated the descriptions comparing Catholicism and the native belief system The characters are gripping, the action exciting, and the end very satisfying A good book all around.


  18. I adore this book I have ever since the day I first brought it home from the library and read it in, oh, three hours maybe It s the book I turn to when I have nothing else to read I own it now 3 and love it every single time.


  19. I enjoyed the time spent in the woods, journeying to Detroit The narrative waned for me when they arrived at the fort and the storytelling took a pseudo Jane Austin turn Meh I d recommend it to some teen looking for something like, but different, from the Twilight story arc.


  20. this book was really good, I have never read a book on historical fiction and I think it was interesting how Maxine Trottier made a book like that, even though many other authors have written historical fiction books as well.






  21. I love this book It was inspiring an heart felt It showed that love can reach over any and all ideas we have of love


  22. SOOO cool I just love this book I would buy it if I could Robert or what s his name is a great father And Lesharo is awesome.
