On My Nightstand - Shadowed in Silk by Christine Lindsay

Abby Fraser travels to India with her young son, Cam, to join her husband. Strong and determined, she's ready to make a life with the man she knew for a few weeks before he went off to war.

Major Geoffrey Richards comes to Abby's rescue when her husband fails to meet her ship. He's back from a devastating war and has the emotional scars to prove it. He's torn between his faith and the brutality of his countrymen.

Plots by a Russian spy and those wanting freedom for India ramp up the intrigue and danger. A horrible event, a kidnapping, and betrayal bring the story to a gripping climax.

Christine Lindsay takes us to exotic India during the days of the British Raj. The sights, noises, and smells are shown in vivid detail. As I read, my mind was in her story world 100%.

The characters are as diverse and colorful as the setting. Even the peripheral characters are given special attention.

I'm always excited when I discover a new-to-me author, whose book transports me to another era. I can't wait to read Christine's other books and novellas.
