Two Crosses-Book I-The Secrets of the Cross Trilogy

By Elizabeth Musser


The glimmering Huguenot cross she so innocently wears leads her deep into the shadows.

When Gabriella Madison arrives in the French village of Castelnau in 1961 to continue her university studies, she doesn’t anticipate being drawn into the secretive world behind the Algerian war for independence from France. And the further she delves into the war efforts, the more her faith is challenged.

The people who surround her bring a whirlwind of transforming forces—a wise nun who knows more about the war and Gabriella’s past than she’s saying, a lost little girl who is carrying secret information, and a debonair man with unknown loyalties who pursues Gabriella. When she discovers a long-hidden family secret, it leads to questions about trust, faith in action, and the power of forgiveness to move beyond the pain of the past.

Book Takeaway:

An intricately woven, fast-paced plot combined with compelling characters, two love stories, references to art and literature, and thoughtful questioning of faith, plus intricate research of historical events that are timely reflections of America’s fear of Muslim populations today. A must read for the thrill of the plot and the truth of the history that effects the Western world today.

Why the author wrote this book:

I wanted to introduce Americans to a war with which most Americans are unfamiliar, drawing them into the story with a tight plot and lots of action combined with the beauty of Southern France and two love stories and ultimately letting the reader grapple with questions of betrayal and forgiveness as the characters do.
