On My Nightstand - Captured by Moonlight by Christine Lindsay

When Laine Harkness helps her friend, Eshana, rescue a young girl, they both get into hot water. They hightail it out of town, hoping things will cool off and enable them to return someday.

Things go from bad to horrific when Eshana's family captures her, and she's once again enslaved. Without a way to communicate with her friends, hope dims.

Laine is unaware of her friend's situation, and reports for duty at a medical mission compound in a remote region. The night she arrives, she comes face-to-face with someone from her past.

This love story set in India during the British Colonial period riveted me. The backdrop and cultural details showed the depth of the author's research and enriched the reading experience.

I'm loathe to describe these people as characters. Each one's distinctive personality and dilemma rang true. It seemed more like a biography than a novel.

Captured by Moonlight gets 5 Stars. I loved it!

I am trying out a Robin Lee Hatcher book for the first time as my next book up to read. Fingers crossed I like her.
