    I'm not going to review my own book but I will just say this novel is unlike any other I've written to date It took some bravery and courage to take the story where I did and I'm hoping it resonates with the people this book was meant to touch You may notice feathers on the book cover may this story give you wings to fly

    My heart feels like it's been drug across rocks between two shores It's hurting for a number of reasonssuandered relationships hungry people orphaned children widows love lost and so much Among the backdrop of the Seven Years' War is Catherine Duval the daughter of a Mohawk mother and French father She is torn between a desire to live with the People and her father who has no one else after he divorcesThis novel includes a great deal of beautiful imagery and symbolism So many of thoughts rambling through my mind are spoilers Between Two Shores is a beautifully written historical fiction novelMy gratitude to publisher Bethany House for a complimentary copy of the novel I was not reuired to post a review and the opinions expressed are my own

    What a poignant heart stirring book Words are always hardest to find for the stories that I love most Catherine Duval is such an inspiring character both for her admirable ualities but even so for her flaws As one that has moved easily between the worlds of her French father and her Mohawk mother Catherine seeks the peace that comes with remaining neutral However neutrality is becoming a dangerous place to be on both shores so she must decide what is important choosing a side may ultimately mean peace and survival for many but the revelations that come along with it may mean discord not peace for her inner worldWhat else to say about this beautiful book? The secondary characters of which there are several are layered and oh so human Even the antagonists of the story have backgrounds and pasts and in war it's hard to know who the real enemy is when both sides are hurting The details of the wilderness trading posts the grim realities of war the tender relationships between sisters by blood and sisters by choice these aspects all provide the reader with scenes that captivate and compelI think what I loved most about this book is that it is not a romance Indeed though the cover is beautiful I wonder that it doesn't uite convey the gravity and complexity of this story This is a discourse on what it means to be family both the family that you're born into and the family that circumstances choose for you It's a testament to forgiveness and healing and doing the right thing to great personal detriment It's about knowing when to lean in and when to finally walk away And you may think that with all these lofty words I'm using that the story is dramatic and at times perhaps it is but on the whole it is nuanced beautifully paced and at times completely surprising In my opinion this is Green's best work to dateFull of vivid imagery rich historical details and ultimately an abundance of hope and redemption Between Two Shores is on my list of favorites for 2019I received a complimentary copy of this novel from the publisher The thoughts and opinions expressed in this review are my own and I was not reuired to post a review positive or otherwise

    From the very first book I read by Jocelyn Green I was impressed and just when you think she couldn't possibly top her other books she amazingly doesOnce I started I just couldn't put it down reading 75% the first dayI am always so impressed with the research she puts into her books to make them accurate and this is one of the reasons I love historical fiction what I can learn from itThe book drew me into it's depths and I really felt as though I was there with these amazing characters Catherine Duval is a half Mohawk half French daughter of a trapper Gabriel Duval She is a very strong The author doesn't sugar coat things in the book the way it's described is the way people really lived back then It takes place in Montreal uebec in 1759Catherine is caught between two worlds her Indian side and trying to please her French father It was refreshing to read a novel that didn't have romance in it that concentrated so much on historical detail insteadI highly recommend this to all who enjoy historical fiction Historical fiction readers will definitely have space on their bookshelves for this authors' booksPublished February 5th 2019 by Bethany House Publishers I was provided with a complimentary copy Thank you All opinions expressed are my own

    25 starsThis book was my most anticipated 2019 release Green has uickly become my favorite historical fiction author so I was greatly looking forward to reading Between Two Shores Unfortunately I was a bit disappointed The cover is honestly the best thing about this bookI loved the rich complex plots in the previous Jocelyn Green books I have read so I had high hopes for this one But to be honest this book really didn't feel like it had a plot for the first three uarters of it The first 45% was almost entirely backstory and therefore the story took seemingly forever to get going The ending was very sweet and I was happy to see some reconciliation between certain characters I also loved the themes of faith The final few scenes were very powerful Although I feel like they could have been far impactful if spread throughout the book instead of hinted at here and there until the end The characters also felt rather flat to me I didn't even like them no less empathize with them until than halfway through the book and even then I still didn't really like Samuel view spoilerI'm sorry dude You are a manipulator and I am very mad that you let Catherine start to fall in love with you again even though you were married Which you somehow neglected to tell her until well on your journey hide spoiler

    A must read for historical fiction fans Through vivid prose and rich historical detail Jocelyn Green proves once again that she is a master storyteller Through a strong heroine and supporting cast Green allows the reader to experience the turmoil and hardship experienced by the Canadian settlers and native Indians during the seven years of the French and Indian War In Catherine Stands Apart we have a strong yet vulnerable heroine who is searching for a place to belong The image of standing apart is both literal and figurative She is caught between the heritage of both parents her mother a Mohawk while her father was a French Canadian In her search to belong she needs to discern which side of the conflict will benefit her family and people the most This is not only a story of a physical journey but a spiritual one of as well Through descriptive prose I was able to empathize with Catherine's anger sorrow and pain as she struggled to find her place among family and her Creator A couple of my favorite uotes Here in this creek behind a black cavern shaped by water she would shed the burden of others' expectations She would be the river that set its own course and not the rock hollowed out by continual force A river that flowed between nations and did not heed a man made war God was not to be bargained with She had nothing to entice Him for she possessed nothing He needed Yet He loved her and that was what she cling toIf she could not bend God's will to hers could she possible bow to His?I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the authorpublisher I was not reuired to write a review All opinions expressed are my own

    I have read every single one of Jocelyn Green's novels and I speak with authority when I say that Between Two Shores is her finest work Her story is compelling as usual her characters well developed and authentic her research done with the utmost integrity the prose laced with beautiful imagery But there was something about this story that sets it apart brings it to another level in Green's work There was a certain poetry to this story that caused me to pause and reread sentences closing my eyes to really absorb the music of her prose The protagonist possessed a complexity that endeared me to her causing me to find myself praying for her to be okay The relationships between the characters were complexed nuanced and absolutely true I have always loved Green's work It's exciting to see her continue to get better and better with each new novelFull disclosure Bethany House Publishers sent me an advanced reader's copy of this book because they know I'm a major Jocelyn Green fan and because they're kind I promised them nothing in return I write this review because I really loved the book That is all

    With emotional depth layered characters and an adventure that sweeps you away Between Two Shores delivers it all Green once again transports the reader to an intricately constructed era her attention to historical details adding authenticity to her dynamic settings Historical Fiction lovers won’t want to miss this riveting tale of courage faith and a woman who discovers that what makes her stand apart could also bridge the divides in her country her home and her heart

    This book is rich in detail I was taken on a journey to a time in history that I was not familiar with The author did a wonderful job of describing the differences in the culture of the BritishMohawkFrenchCanadian conflict I LOVED how she was able to explain the customs and why they reacted differently to situationsThis book is not what I expected For some reason I thought it was a romance but it is not Love is a central part of the book and the different ways to care about another Catherine comes to a better understanding of her part in the love of the people she cares about I could picture myself there with the characters Jocelyn Green paints a picture that I could visualize I don't get that experience with many books that I readI give this book a solid recommendation There is war violence but it is not described in detail It also alludes to torture and the taking of scalpsSource I received a complimentary copy All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own
