Summary

From the banks of the Mississippi River to the shores of the Great Salt Lake, the saga of the Kade family now spans a continent. Christian and Lydia Kade and their family cross the plains with the Saints, bidding farewell to the ruined city of Nauvoo, where their daughter Elizabeth has chosen to remain, separating herself both from her family and her faith.

Haunted by the memory of the tragic loss of a family member, young James embarks on his medical studies and struggles to establish himself as a physician. He is racked by despair when the girl he hopes to marry chooses a gold miner instead, then finds new love of his own in the most surprising of places.

Meanwhile, his sister Elizabeth copes with the heartbreak of her husband's increasing coldness as his drinking and gambling put them and their newborn child in jeopardy. When James visits her in Nauvoo on his return from medical college back east, the stage is set for a climactic confrontation.

Between Two Shores, the third volume of the Kade Family Saga, is a richly historical novel, full of captivating characters, lively dialogue, and fascinating glimpses into a bygone era. With skill and sensitivity, Laurel Mouritsen irresistibly draws her listeners into the circle of lives portrayed in this compelling story.

Even Better

I enjoyed this book in the series even more than the first two. It gave a great story line contrasting two directions in the same family, the one who stayed in Nauvoo and those who traveled west. I particularly like the interaction of fictional characters with real people from history. I would like more of that. I look forward to it continuing.

Captivating

This is such a moving gripping novel that makes you root for their success and you can feel the turmoil in the losses and the sacrifices made. I tell ta, I just don't know how our ancestors made it, but they did and was stronger for it.
