"Shadowed In Silk" by Christine Lindsay"

 Irish-born Christine Lindsay writes multi-award-winning inspirational historical novels. Her great-grandfather and grandfather both worked as riveters on the Titanic. Several more of her ancestors served in the British Cavalry in India, seeding Christine’s long-time fascination with Colonial India, and became the stimulus for her series Twilight of the British Raj. In her novels,SHADOWED IN SILK and CAPTURED BY MOONLIGHT, Christine delights in weaving the endless theme of God’s redemptive love throughout stories of danger, suspense, adventure, and romance.The Pacific coast of Canada, about 200 miles north of Seattle, is Christine’s home. Like a lot of authors, Christine’s chief editor is her cat.                                                                                                                                       

"Shadowed In Silk" by Christine Lindsay deserves more than the 5 stars I can give it. This book really  kept me reading when I knew I should have turned off my ipad and go to sleep. This book had my attention even before I read the first sentence because of the cover and the title. Then when I read the first sentence I was drawn more into the story and couldn't wait to get into the rest of the story.

This book is written so well that I could see the scenes described in my mind. It was like watching a movie. This book is a love story as well as a fictional history of India. There is a glossery in the front of the book to help with the words but I was able to follow along with the story. I only used it about third times.

Abby Fraser has always felt she was of little importance to her father and her aunt. She was married to Nick and the war was over and she was going to meet him in India with their son Cam. When she got there Nick wasn't but Geoff Richards was. He helped her and Cam. At the beginning Cam and Geoff formed an instant love and friendship was all Abby and Geoff had because Abby was married. But Nick wasn't all he pretended to be and their marriage was just a marriage in name only. I felt Abby's pain while reading her story. Geoff was a solider and he was hunting evil men who were stealing guns and causing riots in India. Yes this book is about evil but don't let that stop you from reading this book because the war is just the background for the love story of Abby and Geoff and the love God has for each of us. I was disappointed when I got to the last sentence of this book because I wanted to keep reading about the characters in this story. I was happy to discovered there is a second book in the Twilight of the British Raj Series. So you can be sure I will be adding this book  "Captivated By Moonlight to my Kindle library.
