The Daughter

I've noticed a bunch of books lately with Daughter in the title.  I read the Demon Hunter's Daughter, but there are dozens more.  It seems to follow this pattern: The (insert archaic occupation)'s Daughter. 

So I created a bunch of titles following that pattern and cross-checked them on Amazon.  In order to qualify as "real", it had to have an exact match on the first page of results.   Can you guess which ones below are real books?

Hint: There were 18 Amazon Hits...and I'll post the answers later today.

The Sausage Maker's Daughter 
The Cheese Maker's Daughter  
The Wine Maker's Daughter 
The Drunkard's Daughter 
The Priest's Daughter 
The Bonesetter's Daughter 
The Shepherd's Daughter 
The Lawyer's Daughter  
The Politician's Daughter 
The Missionaries Daughter 
The Ambassador's Daughter 
The Mason's Daughter 
The Bastard's Daughter 
The Jester's Daughter 
The Blacksmith's Daughter 
The Carpenter's Daughter 
The Wet Nurse's Daughter 
The Carriagemaker's Daughter 
The Lace Maker's Daughter 
The King's Daughter 
The Duke's Daughter 
The Pirate's Daughter  
The Snake Catcher's Daughter 
The Peasant's Daughter 
The Scarecrow's Daughter 
The Memory Keeper's Daughter 
The Doctor's Daughter 
The Gynecologist's Daughter 

So, what do you think?  Which ones are real?  Have you read any of them?

I recognize some of these titles -- haven't read them -- but I've seen them. I am looking doubtfully at the Sausage Maker and the Cheese Maker. At least one of them has to be fake, right? And what about the Snake Catcher?

I vote that last one is real! Weird title, but probably real.

Haha! I'd read all about The Sausage Maker's Daughter. If it isn't real, it should be.
