Shadowed in Silk by Christine Lindsay Book Review
Shadowed in Silk by Christine Lindsay takes you back to early 20th century India where the British Raj rule was coming to an end. Abby Fraser is reuniting with her husband after four years apart and bringing her young son with her who has never met his father. While traveling, she meets Major Geoff Richards who takes an immediate protection and liking to Abby and her son, Cam. As Abby adjusts to life with her husband, she realizes that her marriage is in turmoil and her husband is involved in secret affairs. She tries to hold it together as she longs to be noticed and loved. She throws herself into her passion for people by working at a mission despite her husband's disdain. As conflict begins to erupt, Abby is thrust in a dangerous situation. Will she learn to rely on the One who really loves her? And who will protect her in the end, her renegade husband or the compassionate Geoff Richards?
Christine's debut novel is stunning and I was immediately drawn to life in India where each character was exquisitely portrayed. There is drama, romance and mystery. Christine's descriptions are breathtaking and her writing is a perfect weave of a stormy plot. I was on edge until the end! I had no idea what kind of trouble India was in during the time of the Great War. This is a captivating story of hope and redemption as well as love and adventure. I look forward to the next book in this series.
