Description

"With gorgeous prose that sings across the pages, vibrant characters, and a plot as unpredictable as a river voyage, Green has penned another winner for historical fiction lovers."--Lori Benton, author of Many Sparrows and Burning Sky

She Has Always Moved Between Worlds,
But Now She Must Choose a Side

The daughter of a Mohawk mother and French father in 1759 Montreal, Catherine Duval would rather remain neutral in a world tearing itself apart. Content to trade with both the French and the British, Catherine is pulled into the Seven Years' War against her wishes when her British ex-fiancé, Samuel Crane, is taken prisoner by her father. Samuel claims he has information that could help end the war, and he asks Catherine to help him escape.

Peace appeals to Catherine, even if helping the man who broke her heart does not. But New France is starving, and she and her loved ones may not survive another winter of conflict-induced famine. When the dangers of war arrive on her doorstep, Catherine and Samuel flee by river toward the epicenter of the battle between England and France. She and Samuel may impact history, but she fears the ultimate cost will be higher than she can bear.

"Through this unique perspective on the French and Indian War, customs, and loyalties, readers will discover a new view of history. Reading this story was like watching a sunrise, the shift from darkness to light, an overwhelming burst of life and color. . . . Green has created a masterpiece of literature with beautiful imagery and vocabulary."--Hope by the Book

"The authenticity of Jocelyn Green's historical fiction--plot, character, setting, and period detail--is the product of the author's extensive research. In her books, history is more than a backdrop for her stories, as she deftly intertwines fictional plots and characters with settings and events from the past."--Books Make a Difference

"Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green is, in its way, an epic North American story featuring cultural conflict and a wilderness journey. Its overall perspective is as balanced and diplomatic as the character Catherine can be at her best: there is sympathy for both the native and the European settler caught up in the conflict. . . . the novel succeeds as both a deep character study of an under-examined character type and as a broad portrait of the Seven Years' War in its very North American context."--Historical Novel Reviews
