Winter of Peril: The Newfoundland Diary of Sophie Loveridge by Jan Andrews

I picked this book to read because I needed a book with the word "winter" in the title for the 2010 Reading Through the Seasons Challenge.  I wasn't far into the book before I remembered that I had read it before, I think as a read aloud to the kids.

Winter of Peril is part of the Dear Canada Historical Fiction series which was written specifically to interest young girls in the history of their country.  It is, as the subtitle indicates, written in the format of a diary and tells the story of the beginning of a settlement in Newfoundland in 1721.

Jessica has really been enjoying these "Dear Canada" books lately. She's trying to collect up the whole set :-)
