Author event ”A Daughter of the King”


Author event: A Daughter of the King – Catherine Pettersson

STOCKHOLM | Thursday 4th Nov at 18.00. Free!

FRANCE, 1668. Jeanne Denot boards a ship bound for Quebec – one of 800 women sent by Louis XIV to the New World known as ”Daughters of the King”. Onboard the ship she assumes a false identity. But who or what is she escaping?

Meet Catherine Pettersson as she presents a tale of betrayal and redemption. A journey of a thousand miles starts with betrayal...

Fifteen years ago, her mother unceremoniously handed her a binder filled with articles about her family and one “famous” relative in particular (at least famous in his small town in Indiana). His name: Peter Surprise. In one article, she found a throwaway line: “Peter Surprise’s great grandmother was A Daughter of the King.” This mention was the catalyst for writing the book.

Thursday 4th November at 18.00
Free event – welcome! Snacks & refreshments.
