ADVENTUROUS LADY by Dorothy Fremont Grant


Email this review


When penal laws were enforced against Catholics in 17th century England, Margaret Brent left with others of her family to seek her fortune in the new colony of Lord Baltimore in Maryland, where she became prominent in the economic and political life of the new and not always secure society into which she had ventured. The author paints a picture of a resourceful, independent, intelligent woman from an aristocratic family. With emphasis on the courtship of Lord Baltimore's brother, and her recurrent refusals of his suit, girls will enjoy this more than boys. For youngsters ten to fifteen, high lighting another Catholic whose life influenced American history, this biography is informative but only moderately interesting.
