    Catherine Duval is the daughter of a French father and Mohawk mother. Her Indian name is Stands-Apart, for she has always tried to straddle both worlds. Now in 1759, in the middle of what we know now as the French and Indian War, Catherine must take a side - and her actions may change ...

    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 British/Mohawk/French/Canadian conflict. I LOVED how she was able to explain the customs and why t...

    A brilliantly colourful narrative, Green proves once more that there is no genre or time period she cannot hold ransom with her distinctive ability. Ambitious and bold, Between Two Shores employs the literary sensibilities of Lori Benton and the sweepingly epic tendencies of Laura ...

    "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. ...

    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 qualities, but even more so for her flaws. As one that has moved easily between the worlds of her French fathe...

    This book was everything and nothing that I anticipated. I?ve come to expect great stories and beautiful writing from Jocelyn Green and she delivered, but she also gave me such a wonderful surprise along the way. This book veers away from the pattern of its genre and was all the more...

    Set in my very favorite time period, I was anxious to read Jocelyn Green's Between Two Shores. The story of a Metis girl and her fictional role in the very real fall of Quebec during the French and Indian War was heart-rending in the way good historical fiction can be. Green's attentio...

    Between Two Shores was a very unexpected but very beautifully-crafted story. Set during the 1750s, it follows the life of Catherine Duval ... daughter of a Frenchman and Mohawk woman. After losing her mother, Catherine leaves the Mohawk village to join her father in his trading busines...

    As a Canadian I have to admit to being thrilled over a novel set during a pivotal time in my country's history. Brings me back to my junior high school studies and helps me make sense of the complicated cultural clash that still affects my country today. And I had a literary flashback ...

    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 c...

    There?s a solemn tone throughout this book as we go back and forth in time and slowly unveiling the divide in which Catherine Stands-Alone lives. She might believe she lives in neutrality, but deep down she knows that?s impossible. Will she do what she must or will she continue as...

    Another amazing read from author Jocelyn Green. What can I say?she writes the kind of meaty historical fiction with real depth that I absolutely love to read. And once again she?s shed light on slices of history I knew nothing to little about. For instance, I?d never heard how Br...

    My heart feels like it's been drug across rocks between two shores. It's hurting for a number of reasons...squandered relationships, hungry people, orphaned children, widows, love lost and so much more. Among the backdrop of the Seven Years' War is Catherine Duval, the daughter of a...

    Catherine is torn between so much. Her father, her sister and brother, her country, war and the prospect of peace. Throw into the mix Samuel and there?s a deep beautiful story here. One of love but not the romantic typical type of story one usually expects. It?s a thought provoking...

    The 18th century is one of my favorite time periods so this book caught my interest as soon as I read the description. I can?t say the beginning grabbed me as much as I would have liked. The abundance of backstory seemed to have quite a few areas of telling instead of showing that di...
