Dieppe Crossing by Betty McLane-Iles

“[The book] is a tribute to friendship, solidarity, courage, and unfailing loyalty. It is a must-read for anyone in search of a worthwhile novel.”

Betty McLane-Iles’s Dieppe Crossing is a captivating piece of fiction with a touch of history. In 2017, LitFire Publishing brought Betty’s book to three of the largest gatherings of publishing professionals—the London Book Fair, BookExpo America, and Frankfurt Book Fair.

In 1987, as a ferry crosses from Newhaven in England to Dieppe in northern France, mysterious Marie-Louise Sandriano rescues Jena Cohn, an Anglo-American emigrant, from drowning in the English Channel. Their encounter instigates a series of events, as Jena learns of Marie’s intriguing personal and family background, entwining multiple countries and characters together in acts of courage, resistance, violence and reconciliation. Betty, through her main characters Jena and Marie, takes the readers back to some of Europe’s historic moments. The author moves the reader forward and backwards through time past eras of poverty, war and occupation, up towards final decades of heroism and mediation.

The multicultural characters and integration of events in England’s and France’s history adds to the uniqueness of Dieppe Crossing’s storyline. An Amazon reviewer says, “[The book] is a tribute to friendship, solidarity, courage, and unfailing loyalty. It is a must-read for anyone in search of a worthwhile novel.”
