Review of Between Two Shores


In Jocelyn Green’s Between Two Shores, Catherine Duval is determined to remain neutral, despite her French heritage, in The Seven Years War, a conflict that seems interminable. She must trade with the British if her family is to survive. But when her long-lost fiancée is taken prisoner, Catherine is forced to make a choice that threatens all she holds dear. Will this decision bring the peace she so desires? Or will it cost her everything, including her life?

Between Two Shores is captivating historical fiction. The narrative is rich with time-period detail, vivid description, and compelling characters who display complexity, authenticity and depth. The plot has incredible twists and turns and leads to an unexpected climax. Green’s writing is exceptional, eloquent, and exquisite, and the reader will remain riveted until the last page.

Between Two Shores is brilliant, beautiful, and one of my favorite fiction reads of the year. I highly recommend it.


I was given a free copy from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
