Fiction Friday: Between Two Shores
A French & Indian War Adventure
Because I’m such a jaded reader, my list of favorite authors is very short…but Jocelyn Green makes the cut. I can’t wait to get my hands on her French & Indian War tale, Between Two Shores. Yes, I know. I’m a little late to the scene because this beauty came out in February and here it is already November, yet I stand by my life motto: so many books, so little time. But enough of my blabbering. Let’s cut to the blurb for this bad boy, shall we?
The daughter of a Mohawk mother and French father in 1759 Montreal, Catherine Duval finds it is easier to remain neutral in a world that is tearing itself apart. Content to trade with both the French and the British, Catherine is pulled into the fray against her wishes when her British ex-
fiance, Samuel Crane, is taken prisoner by her father. Samuel asks her to help him escape, claiming he has information that could help end the war.
Peace appeals to Catherine, but helping the man who broke her heart does not. She delays . . . until attempts on Samuel's life convince her he's in mortal danger. Against her better judgment she helps him flee by river, using knowledge of the landscape to creep ever closer to freedom. Their time together rekindles feelings she thought long buried, and danger seems to hound their every mile. She's risked becoming a traitor by choosing a side, but will the decision cost her even more than she anticipated?
