The Chief Factor’s Daughter


Margaret Work, daughter of Chief Factor John Work, was born into a remarkable family of the Hudson's Bay Company elite. Her British-Métis heritage, an advantage in the fur trade, is now a target for snobbery and racism as the 1858 gold rush brings changing attitudes and loyalties. Unwed at 24, Margaret worries she is fated to spinsterhood in these turbulent times. Based on real people and events, The Chief Factor's Daughter is an elegant recreation of a vanished society.
