Alice of Old Vincennes Paperback
Alice is a vagrant who was initially named Alice Tarleton. She was abducted by the Indians as a little kid and safeguarded by Gaspard Roussillon, the informal city hall leader of Vincennes, who with his better half has brought her up to be free, mentally inquisitive, and anxious to carry on with life completely. In 1779 the "northwest" as it was then called, was a Francophone, Roman Catholic world inhabited for the most part by trackers and hide brokers. Vincennes was lucky to be a settled town with a congregation and old Father Beret, a Roman Catholic cleric from France with a strange past.
