- For Teachers
Do you think that "The Daughter of Baroness" nice and neat -- and common English -- as a book title? A freelance editor said me that I've used it incorrectly and my book is failed from the top title. But she didn't say the right form. What else I can say for it? Baroness' Daughter or The Daughter of the Baroness?

You definintely need an article. However, if she's the daughter of a Baroness, is she not also the daughter of the Baron?
I think "The Baron's Daughter" is neater and avoids the messy Baroness's.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
No, her father is a penniless and adventurer Irishman. :D Only her mother is a Baroness. According to Dutch aristocrasy, a daughter or a son in a baronial family, borns with title. (not from the wikipedia but some North Europeans told me like that.) I mean, she was Baroness even when she was maiden.

What is difference with the "a" and "the"? The main character is the daugter, and the Baroness second main and important character. Reader will knows her well. Which should I use then? A or the?
Unless other Baronesses will be in the story.
