“Richly historic, even haunting, Green pens a remarkable tale of the clash of cultures and the quest for enduring love. Between Two Shores is extraordinary storytelling, showcasing an unforgettable heroine who is both fierce and a force for good in an ever-changing frontier landscape. A novel not soon forgotten.”
Laura Frantz, author of A Bound Heart
“Jocelyn Green captures the tensions of war in Between Two Shores, on the field with musket and tomahawk and in the tender battlefield of the heart. With gorgeous prose that sings across the pages, vibrant characters, and a plot as unpredictable as a river voyage, Green has penned another winner for historical fiction lovers.”
Lori Benton, author of Many Sparrows and Burning Sky
“Jocelyn Green has done it again with this masterful tale, Between Two Shores. She had me mesmerized from the beginning as I lived and breathed Catherine’s story of family heartbreak and resounding joy. The backdrop of the Seven Years’ War brought history and culture to life in this must-read story.”
Kimberley Woodhouse, bestselling author of Out of the Ashes and In the Shadow of Denali
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.
Q&A with Jocelyn Green
I know an idea is good when… it makes me run to write it down (usually with some kind of squeal or eureka-style shout) and wonder why I didn’t think of it before.
The best day in my life (so far!) was when…my babies were born–so that’s two different dates, and it’s a tie. Those days are a close second after the day I married my husband.
To de-stress, I like to…watch The Great British Baking Show! If I’m out of episodes, I’ll watch The Kids Baking Championship with my 10-year-old son. Sometimes exercise helps me destress, but the question was what do I like to do, so there you have it.
I keep organized by…using Google docs, three-ring binders for research, and a good old-fashioned paper planner called the Panda Planner, which prompts me to identify short-term and long-term goals, potential distractions, and small victories.
I wish I could travel to…Scotland OR hop on a European river cruise. My husband and I have been to Ireland and have toured Europe by train, but traveling via river would be fabulous! As long as I’m dreaming, let’s add Rick Steves as the tour guide.
