    1 thought on “Favorite Daughter, Part One”

    1. The legend of Pocahontas is most well-known as an Indian princess who saved the life of an Englishman, John Smith, who was an Indian hostage. Her story was first written by John Smith and has been romanticized through generations. The most popular version of the story is the Disney movie, Pocahontas released in 1995. However, Paula Margulies’s Favorite Daughter, Part One tells the legend of Pocahontas from the Native American perspective. In this story the tale is retold by Pocahontas herself [...]

    2. **Copy provided via the author in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are mine alone.** At a Glance/The Cover:For those who know me, I absolutely love historical fiction, especially when they have to do with romance. I especially like the ones set in the Victorian/1800s time period or the medieval with princes and queens, because the guys were such gentlemen. :) But this one isn't. It goes even more back. And I'm totally totally fine with that. In fact, I encourage it. Because [...]

    3. I received “First Daughter, Part 1” through the First Reads program. When it arrived in the mail, my preschool-aged daughter was captivated by the cover (as was I), and she asked what the book was about. I told her it’s about Pocahontas and asked if she knew who Pocahontas was. She said, “Yes, she married Prince John.” As I thought about it, that’s about all I knew about Pocahontas, too. So, while I was already interested in this novel, I was even more excited to dive into the book [...]

    4. This review and more on So BookaliciousWhen I was little Pocahontas was one of my favorite Disney movies, if I’m honest it still is. Her story has always intrigued me. A young Native American girl that saved the life of an intruder. In this book I finally got to know more about her in a fun way. Favorite Daughter tells the story of Pocahontas early life, her transformation from childhood into adulthood. The story begins when John Smith and his men have arrived in America. Pocahontas is immedia [...]

    5. I think the subject matter is intriguing and I enjoyed becoming immersed in the Native Americans'--at least this tribe's--way of living. But I grew tired of some things.I'm not a big fan of present tense. I've been able to enjoy it in the past, but the book has to grip me so strongly that I can ignore the present tense and that just didn't happen.I found Pocahontus's obsession with "Chonsmit" weird to the point it made me uncomfortable. A young girl's infatuation? Lust? I'm guessing he's much ol [...]

    6. An amazing book! Getting to know Pocahontas through this first person perspective was very interesting. This story brings a whole new perspective to what we have thought of her through the years - it brings her to life with everyday accounts. It was very interesting to see the types of activities she would have done on a daily basis and to "see" her village through her eyes. Get to know Pocahontas in a new light by following her through her day-to-day activities in her village, and as she intera [...]

    7. I was fortunate to receive an advance reader copy of “Favorite Daughter, part one.” It's a work of historical fiction that brings the reader into Pocahontas’ world, her thoughts & her will to learn about the new world encroaching into hers. Here is a thoroughly researched story about a young woman with brains, heart, & some social rank who found herself fascinated by the British explorer John Smith & his colonial compatriots. She learned to speak his language, and through a ser [...]

    8. Though I received this book through a author giveaway, it is my honest opinion that this version of the story of Pocahontas will be a best-seller. The author's thorough research will bring a new understanding to readers of the impact the arrival of the white man had on Native Americans. When I read of the day-to-day activities of the young Pocahontas and the people in her village, it felt like I were there. It did amaze me that her father put so much responsibility on the shoulders of one so yo [...]

    9. We've all heard of Pocahontas,the native girl who saved the life of John Smith back in the days of the settlement of Jamestown. The myths, the schoolbook lessons, the biased books written from the viewpoint of the settlers What makes THIS book unique is that it is her story written from HER viewpoint, life seen thru HER eyes. I'm truly looking forward to Part 2 from this author! The one and only thing that distracted me was the following: in order for the pages to flow easier, there needs to be [...]

    10. I received this book through first-reads author giveaway and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Favorite Daughter, Part One is the first part of the story of Pocahontas. This novel, which is told in first person, was a refreshing retelling of Pocahontas' story about how she is torn between the Indian world she has grown up in as a daughter of the chief and the outsiders world that she longs to be a part of by observing John Smith. This story gave amazing insight of how it was to be Pocahontas and the cha [...]

    11. Pocahontas was one of my favorite heroines growing up, as my ancestry carries Native American blood. Her bravery and perseverance through what must have been a nightmare at times is not only heartbreaking, it’s inspiring.I thoroughly enjoyed this novel! The author has done a wonderful job of bringing this extraordinary character to life, in a manner that’s believable. The research invested is evident, and shines through with every turn of the page. Although a work of fiction, I found this to [...]

    12. As a native woman, I was curious to see how the author would portray Pocahontas much less attempt to speak for her. I was pleasantly surprised. The historical research Paula Margulies conducted has been intertwined with storytelling so that the reader first meets the young child, Matoaka, who is also known as Amonute and finally Pocahontas. Pushing the Disney stereotype aside, the reader is able to see the world as Pocahontas would have seen it, her curiosity about the strange looking people and [...]

    13. I really liked that this was told from Pocahontas's point of view. She has had such an amazing impact on America's history and it was fascinating to read how she met John Smith. She came into her own and I really enjoyed her side of the story. There is an author's note, a glossary and a bibliography. This is based on so much fact, however it is fiction. This is a great book for high school students. The author definitely knows a lot about Pocahontas! It shows through her work. I am giving this b [...]

    14. I’ve always been fascinated with the story of Pocahontas, and since so much of her history has been told to us by the English explorer John Smith, I decided that retelling her story, from her perspective, might make for an interesting read. Favorite Daughter, Part One is written for adults and focuses on Pocahontas’s coming of age into womanhood and becoming a wife and mother, in addition to her work as a representative of her tribe and, eventually, as a celebrity in England (that part of he [...]

    15. I enjoyed this imaginative vision of the early story of Pocahontas. The narrative is fluid and the inclusion of authentic details and vocabulary were wonderful. I am grateful to for sending me a copy and I'm crossing my fingers to win a copy of the sequel in due time!

    16. I was not entirely satisfied with Paula Margulies’s Favorite Daughter, Part One. Certain aspects of the novel informed and entertained me. Other aspects disappointed.I commend the author for her selection of subject matter. Historians know very little about Algonquian tribes that lived near the Atlantic coastal waters in the late 16th and early 17th Centuries. Their knowledge is limited to what English explorers and colonial leaders chose to report. The story about Pocahontas and John Smith th [...]

    17. Love reading historical fiction and Pocohantas is one of my favorites. I liked seeing the Indian Village thru Pocohantas's eyes. Also how her Father treated her was quite endearing. Plan on reading the 2nd Book
