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.

Nice Things People Say
One intriguing era in France’s history, one unforgettable cast of characters, and one of the best writers in CBA today all add up to one incredible read! In Two Crosses, Elizabeth Musser has achieved another literary triumph. – Ann Tatlock, award-winning author Promises to Keep
A wonderful tale of love, sacrifice, war and courage, written in stunning detail. Elizabeth Musser is an amazing storyteller. – Susan Meissner, author of A Sound Among the Trees
Elizabeth Musser reminder me of Francine Rivers. The characters are real, the drama is gripping, and the Spirit rises up from the grass roots of the story. You’ll love Two Crosses. – Creston Mapes, best-selling author of Nobody
In a novel rich in historical detail, Elizabeth Musser spins an intriguing story of the lives and loves of young people caught up in the Algerian revolution to win independence from France in 1954-1962. It was a costly conflict, and we are invited to see it through the eyes of those living on both side of the Mediterranean. Christian convictions and patriotic loyalties are put to the test as God works His plans for individuals and nations. I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the rest of the trilogy. – Ruth Stewart, AWM missionary for forty years in Algeria and France.
