Between Two Worlds
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?
My thoughts: I thought that Between Two Shores was an excellent piece of historical fiction! I like that it is about a lesser known period of time in history with the Seven Year War in the mid 1700's and incorporates some unique aspects of history. Catherine is the daughter of two worlds, having been born to a Mohawk mother and a French Father. When the war hits home, she attempts to stay neutral, but is pulled into the war and forced to make difficult decisions.
Jocelyn's books make history come alive, I highly recommend this book!
I received a complimentary copy of this book. This is my honest review.
