Between Two Shores by Jocelyn Green

 

My last post for 2018. Thank you for following along and I hope you continue to enjoy my reviews throughout 2019! Happy New Year everyone!


Between Two Shores is Jocelyn Green's novel of the French and Indian war. Catherine Stands Apart a woman of French and Mohawk descent runs the trading post for her French father and trades with the Voyageurs and the natives. She spans two peoples belonging to neither. I enjoyed most of the book with it's depiction of life at that time. Ms. Green has certainly done her research and she paints a picture of life at that time. She has created strong female characters in Catherine, her sister Bright Star and Thankful the girl she ransomed.The only part I did not enjoy was the gory description of battle injuries. I believe that Ms. Green's storytelling skills are growing with each novel she writes. So grab a mug of tea and settle in for a great read, I believe you will love Catherine as much as I do!


From Amazon:

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?

Confirmed bachelor Lieutenant Jack Hennessey has long worked with the tribe and is tasked with trying to convince them that the mission school at Fort Reno can help their children. When a message arrives about a recovered survivor, Jack heads out to take her home--and plead his case once more.

Searching For You is the exciting conclusion to Jody Hedlund's Orphan Train trilogy. Sophie Neuman believes that her older sisters have abandoned her for their new lives. She has been living on the streets with Olivia and Nicolas her two young charges. She decides to take a chance with the orphan train. I loved the characters and the setting. I learned quite a bit about the orphan train. I have to admit I am sad to have reached the end of this trilogy as I have become very fond of the Neuman sisters. So grab a mug of hot tea and settle in for a great read.

I was given this book by NetGalley.com with no expectations. All thoughts are my own.

The Bride Of Ivy Green by Julie Klassen



The Bride of Ivy Green is the delightful conclusion to Julie Klassen's Ivy Green trilogy. I enjoyed revisiting Ivy Green and catching up with lives of everyone there. With some new faces amongst the villagers, there is always something new going on. With several people of courting age who is going to be the bride? Ms. Klassen has created an enjoyable cast of characters that have grown throughout her trilogy. I would not mind seeing a fourth book...hint. LOL.  So settle in at The Bell and have a mug of tea while you catch up on all the gossip from Ivy Green!

I was given a copy of this book by NetGalley.com with no expectations. All thoughts are my own.


From Amazon:

Much has happened in idyllic Ivy Hill in recent months, and while several villagers have found new love and purpose, questions remain--and a few dearly held dreams have yet to be fulfilled.

Jane Bell is torn. Gabriel Locke is back and has made his intentions clear. But Jane is reluctant to give up her inn and destine another man to a childless marriage. Then someone she never expected to see again returns to Ivy Hill. . . . 

Mercy Grove has lost her school and is resigned to life as a spinster, especially as the man she admires seems out of reach. Should she uproot herself from Ivy Cottage to become a governess for a former pupil? Her decision will change more lives than her own.

A secretive new dressmaker arrives in the village, but the ladies soon suspect she isn't who she claims to be. Will they oust the imposter, or help rescue her from a dangerous predicament?

In the meantime, everyone expects Miss Brockwell to marry a titled gentleman, even though her heart is drawn to another. While the people of Ivy Hill anticipate one wedding, an unexpected bride may surprise them all.

Don't miss this romantic, stirring conclusion to Tales from Ivy Hill.

The Making of Mrs. Hale by Carolyn Miller



 From the land down under comes The Making of Mrs. Hale the latest Regency novel by Carolyn Miller. I love Carolyn's books! She writes delightful stories of ladies and gentlemen during the Regency period of London. Her characters have depth and  I love how characters from former books usually appear at some point in the story. I also love the way that her stories always point the way back to God. It is always a good day when I get one of Carolyn's books in the mail. So grab your tea and biscuits and settle in for a lovely visit to Regency England.

I was given a copy of this book by Kregel Publications with no expectations. All thoughts are my own.


From Amazon:

Marry in haste, repent in leisure—Mrs. Hale is about to find out how painful that repentance can truly be.

Julia Hale ran off to be married in Gretna Green, following romance instead of common sense. But her tale isn't turning into a happily ever after. Her new husband is gone and she doesn't know where—or if he's ever coming back. Julia has no option but to head home to the family she betrayed by eloping and to hope they'll forgive her. Especially now that she might be carrying a baby from her brief marriage.

Carolyn Miller's clean and wholesome Regency romances continue with The Making of Mrs. Hale, following familiar characters as they learn how restoration can occur by finding hope and healing through a deep relationship with God. Full of rich historical details and witty banter, this series continues to draw in fans of Jane Austen, Sarah Ladd, and Julie Klassen.

"Carolyn Miller gets better and better with each book!"
Becky 

"This entire series is going straight to my all-time favorites shelf!"
Beth Erin

"My girls and I have fallen in love with the Regency Brides series."

Hi, I'm Carolyn Miller, author of 'The Elusive Miss Ellison'.

I live in the beautiful Southern Highlands of New South Wales, Australia.

I'm married, with four gorgeous children, who all love to read (and write!) as I do (except not in the Regency genre - funny, that!).

My favourite authors are classics like Jane Austen (of course!), Georgette Heyer, and Agatha Christie, but I also enjoy contemporary authors like Susan May Warren and Becky Wade.

I try to write stories that are fun and witty, yet also deal with real issues, such as dealing with forgiveness, the nature of really loving versus 'true love', and other challenges we all face at different times.

I hope you enjoy reading my novels. Thanks for stopping by!

When You Look At Me by Pepper Basham



When You Look At Me is the sequel to Pepper Basham's Just The Way You Are. This pair of books is set between England and the Appalachian mountains. Ms. Basham handles romance in a sweet, yet oh so lovely way that has you cheering for the couples long before they realize that they are in love. Her descriptions of kisses and food leave you longing for more! The way she describes the settings make it easy to visualize beautiful landscapes. I love the way she weaves God's love and redemption into the fabric of the story.
So grab a mug of sassafras tea and some of Julia's baked goods, it's time for a great read!

I borrowed this book through Kindle Unlimited. All thoughts are my own.

From Amazon:

An unexpected mother-to-be
A romance-leery composer
And a forgotten melody from the past that holds the keys to their futures

When Julia Jenkins' great aunt dies and leaves her a Victorian mansion with decades of secrets, Julia never expects to unearth a World War 2 espionage mystery. Struggling with her own past since an assault left her pregnant, her future as a solo parent leaves her dreams uncertain. The inheritance from her great aunt gives Julia the ability to take a step back into her future, but also sends her into the discovery of a love story she’d never anticipated. As she goes through her aunt's treasured possessions, Julia uncovers some oddly written piano music with a musical code she can’t decipher on her own. Not to worry, introverted Englishman and composer, Henry Wright, is thrust on the scene by a pair of homespun matchmakers who know the ‘right’ man for Julia’s wounded heart. 

Henry arrives in Pleasant Gap with the task of composing the soundtrack for his best mate’s newest film. The Jenkins’ family’s southern welcome and gregarious personalities set his reticent nature on edge, but he’s inexplicably drawn to his gentle and music-loving hostess, Julia. Uncertain how to build a friendship with the wounded woman, and rather hopeless in communicating well through words, the bond of music becomes a bridge between her uncertainty and his awkwardness. 

But her broken past and his families’ expectations build a wall much greater than the cultures that separate them. As they work together to solve a musical mystery from the grave, will an unlikely romance from the past inspire their hearts to trust in a God who’s written the perfect melody for their lives?

An Hour Unspent by Roseanna White



An Hour Unspent is book 3 in Roseanna White's Shadows over England series. While I have loved all 3 books I believe this one to be my favorite. Barclay Pearce is a delightful character who truly loves his family and as a reformed thief works for the government. Evalina Manning is a clockmakers daughter and suffragette. I really enjoyed the light suspense along with the romance. I really hope this is not the final book on the family as there are still several siblings with stories to tell. So grab a mug of good black tea and a few biscuits and settle in for a good read.

I was given a preview copy of this book by NetGalley.com with no expectations. All thoughts are my own.

About the Book

An Hour UnspentOnce London’s top thief, Barclay Pearce has turned his back on his life of crime and now uses his skills for a nation at war. But not until he rescues a clockmaker’s daughter from a mugging does he begin to wonder what his future might hold.
Evelina Manning has constantly fought for independence but she certainly never meant for it to inspire her fiancĂ© to end the engagement and enlist in the army. When the intriguing man who saved her returns to the Manning residence to study clockwork repair with her father, she can’t help being interested. But she soon learns that nothing with Barclay Pearce is as simple as it seems.
As 1915 England plunges ever deeper into war, the work of an ingenious clockmaker may give England an unbeatable military edge—and Germany realizes it as well. Evelina’s father soon finds his whole family in danger—and it may just take a reformed thief to steal the time they need to escape it.

Guest Post from Roseanna

Last year, as I finished up the writing of An Hour Unspent, my great-grandmother passed away at the age of 103. As I sat at her funeral service and listened to the heartfelt memorial raised up to her by her kids and grandkids, I realized anew that this woman had been a matriarch in the truest sense of the word. She’d taught my family for generations how to love the Lord and each other, how to serve the Lord and each other, and how to trust the Lord and each other. Grandma Seward was, in so many ways, the one who instilled in me my idea of what family really is.
That idea—that it’s those knit together by love more than blood, and that faith is the strongest foundation—is what I built my unusual family of thieves upon in the Shadows Over England series. And strange as it is to liken my twenty-something reformed-thief hero to my 103-year-old-grandmother, Barclay Pearce is very much to his family what Maxine Seward was to mine.
The founder. The caregiver. The leader.
I knew as I began the series that I would write about Barclay in book three, and as I got to know him better throughout the series, I grew so excited to share his story! This is a man who led his family first into and then out of a life a crime, always for the right reasons—so he could provide for the children under his care. All he ever wanted to do was give them what he himself had lost. To show them love. To prove to them that they were worth any sacrifice.
It was truly a blessing for me to get to write the story in which Barclay found someone to come alongside him, to appreciate and learn to understand him. To finally share what started him down this path. I loved the idea that only a reformed thief could steal the time another family needed to overcome their own trials.
There are many historical items in the book that were such fun to explore—watchmaking of the era, the suffrage movement in England, technological advancements of the war—but at the heart, this isn’t a story about any of those.
It’s a story about how far people should go for love. I hope you enjoy Barclay’s story as much as I did!
