Betsy and Catherine

 "An Uncommon Friendship"


Betsy and Catherine

Set in eighteenth-century London, England, this fictional novel touches on the life of the upper crust and those who served them. As they both come together, foolish choices and harrowing consequences take two women—one an aristocrat and the other her servant—into a storm of trial, scorn, and tribulation.

Loved it !

Kept my interest. Room for drama in next book if written.

I loved the book! I read it in under 24 hours, which for me is quick. I didn't want to put it down. I loved the characters, and the story line. I just wish I could read more of their story. Maybe there will be a sequel!

A refreshing original story line. Once the main characters got into their adventure it was quite a page turner. The descriptions of the actions were detailed enough to envision while not being overwhelming. I particularly enjoyed the intelligence and dignity of the main characters as they overcame the variety of obstacles they encountered during their voyage in this particular historical period of Australia.

A story of adventure, hardship, true friendship, and love. A reminder that in life's most difficult challenges, the loyalty of someone who truly cares makes all the difference!
