My rating: 5 of 5 stars
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?
Between Two Shores is yet another fabulous book by Jocelyn Green. I have and enjoyed every one of her historicals and this one does not disappoint. It is rich and vivid in historical details. I was transported back in time to mid eighteenth century Montreal. I instantly felt connected to Catherine. I loved her bravery, courage and determination. She is a woman before her time.
I am giving Between Two Shores a very well deserved five plus stars. I highly recommend it for readers who love well written historical fiction. I loved it!
I received this book from the publisher, but was not required to write a review. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
