Staff Reviews


Helena is the child born of kidnapping and captivity, until she and her mother escaped. Thirteen years later, her father has broken out of prison and Helena must use the skills he taught her to catch him. Woven around Hans Christian Anderson’s story The Marsh King's Daughter, and alternating between Helena’s childhood and her hunt for the man she both loves and hates, this fiendishly paced psychological thriller completely floored me. Think Room, but with vengeance.

— Flannery

Helena didn’t know she was a prisoner until she was 12. Raised in a remote marsh in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, she spent her childhood shadowing her father, who taught her how to track and hunt like their Native Americans ancestors. Decades later, Helena must use these same skills to track her father, who has escaped from prison and is looking to kidnap again. I was immediately enthralled by Dionne’s thrilling and atmospheric storytelling and read this book in a single sitting.

“After a childhood in the wilds of Northern Michigan, where her rugged, brutal father was the center of her world, Helena has made a new life with a family who doesn't know her past. Now she and her father are hunting each other and Helena must use all the skills he taught her to survive. Fascinating, dark, and disturbing, The Marsh King's Daughter is a psychological thriller most compelling in its rich descriptions of the survivalist training of a very tough little girl.”
