Between Two Shores

In 1759 during the French & Indian War, Catherine Duval, half-Mohawk and half-French, runs her father’s trading post outside of Montreal. With the British besieging Quebec City and famine raging, French soldiers arrive to impress the women into harvesting wheat for the army at Quebec. To Catherine’s shock, her father “ransoms” a British prisoner-of-war, Samuel Crane, who had broken Catherine’s heart several years before. 

Only Samuel has no intention of staying as a servant. He has information that could end the war in Canada, and no one but Catherine can help him escape. But to do so, Catherine will have to make a treacherous journey, endanger her loved ones, and risk her own heart once again.

In Between Two Shores, Jocelyn Green brings to life the perilous times of the French & Indian War in Canada. Lush descriptions and compelling characters make reading this story a rich experience. Along the way, Catherine faces truths about herself and the Lord that resonated with me. Don’t miss this story!

    Sounds interesting! Thanks for sharing and thanks for recommending books. I look through your Pinterest on books you’ve read. A lot of them I have read due to your recommendations! By the way, I’m a HUGE fan of your books! I’ve been telling so many people about your books! The characters seem real and each time I end a series, I’m sadden because I feel like they were friends and I want to keep up with them all. Also, the information you give is explicit. I know quite a few things pertaining to WWII era, but you’ve taken it to a hole new level of excitement in learning! And the way you describe the happenings of each battle they face makes it hard to put the book down! Great job and don’t stop writing! I have read Wings Of Glory and Waves Of Freedom. Excited to start another series of yours. Thanks again!
