CFBA Shadowed in Silk….By: Christine Lindsay

This week, theChristian Fiction Blog Allianceis introducingShadowed In SilkWhiteFire Publishing (September 1, 2011)byChristine LindsayABOUT THE AUTHOR:

Christine Lindsay writes historical Christian inspirational novels with strong love stories. She doesn’t shy away from difficult subjects such as the themes in her debut novel SHADOWED IN SILK which is set in India during a turbulent era. Christine’s long-time fascination with the British Raj was seeded from stories of her ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in India. SHADOWED IN SILK was the Gold winner of the 2009 ACFW Genesis for Historical.

The Pacific coast of Canada, about 200 miles north of Seattle, is Christine’s home. It’s a special time in her life as she and her husband enjoy the empty nest, but also the noise and fun when the kids and grandkids come home. Like a lot of writers, her cat is her chief editor.

 


ABOUT THE BOOK

She was invisible to those who should have loved her.

After the Great War, Abby Fraser returns to India with her small son, where her husband is stationed with the British army. She has longed to go home to the land of glittering palaces and veiled women…but Nick has become a cruel stranger. It will take more than her American pluck to survive.

Major Geoff Richards, broken over the loss of so many of his men in the trenches of France, returns to his cavalry post in Amritsar. But his faith does little to help him understand the ruthlessness of his British peers toward the Indian people he loves. Nor does it explain how he is to protect Abby Fraser and her child from the husband who mistreats them.

Amid political unrest, inhospitable deserts, and Russian spies, tensions rise in India as the people cry for the freedom espoused by Gandhi. Caught between their own ideals and duty, Geoff and Abby stumble into sinister secrets . . . secrets that will thrust them out of the shadows and straight into the fire of revolution.

MY THOUGHTS ON THIS BOOK 

The early 1900’s India is the setting of this Shadowed in Silk. Christine Lindsay writes an intriguing story rich in history and difficult issues throughout. I found the characters are flawed but relatable and interesting to get to know. Geoff and Abby’s journey throught the story was a difficult one but still I enjoyed the journey with these two characters. Especially with so much evil lurking, sometimes it was difficult to read and other times I couldn’t put it down because I wanted to see what the ending would be. Lindsay does a nice job weaving together all of the characters, situations, issues in the book. If you enjoy historical fiction, this is one you will enjoy.

A special thanks to the author/publisher for a copy of this book. I am not required to write a positive review, the opinions here are mine alone. I am disclosing this with my review in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
