Between Two Shores is another unforgettable story by one very talented author. The history pulled me in closer with each page I turned. Not only did I learn more about our country’s past, but I felt as if I walked in the heroine’s shoes for awhile. Catherine is bold and brave, but she’s also sensitive and gentle toward those she loves. She faces her fears and hurts, proving to be a warrior through and through. Her journey is not to be missed.
While I wouldn’t say this is a historical romance, the tale carries great heart and emotion. The challenges of war affect each of the characters in realistic and sometimes heartbreaking ways. It wasn’t the easiest read, due to these heavy topics, but I appreciated its truth in the details.
Not to mention, the author’s prose and gift for painting magical settings truly made the story come alive. If you enjoy reading about strong heroines who rise above the gritty challenges of their world, this book is for you. Between Two Shores will sweep you away down the river alongside Catherine. I have a feeling you’ll come out on the other side changed, and for the better, just as she.
About the Book
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.
