It was stories of ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in India that seeded Christine’s long-time fascination with the British Raj and became the stimulus for her series Twilight of the British Raj.

Reviewed by Joy Hannabass for Readers' Favorite

Abby Fraser eagerly awaits this special meeting with her husband. She and her husband Nick only spent a few days together before Nike was called away on military duty four years ago. And Nick will finally have a chance to meet his three-year-old son, Cam. You would think that a husband would be looking forward to meeting his wife, especially since it had been four years since seeing her. But Nick missed meeting his wife and son, not once but twice. Something that really bugged Major Geoff Richards. What would be more important than meeting his family for the first time in four long years? Christine Lindsay writes an intriguing and exciting story in “Shadowed in Silk” set in India after World War I. It is so well-written that it will keep you turning the pages. The main characters Geoff, Abby and Cam are unique and wonderful, and throughout the book I was trying to figure out how they would end up together. After all, Abby is a married woman. And Abby’s husband Nick seems to want it to stay that way. Nick was such a jerk, and really put his wife and son in compromising situations, though he really didn’t care about them at all. I kept wanting Nick to finally meet someone who would put him in his place! On the other hand, Geoff was concerned for Abby and Cam’s safety and tried to protect them.

Sometimes this book was very difficult to read, with the tension and fighting among the people of India. At times I couldn’t put the book down, because I was determined to find out what was going to happen next. I was scared for Abby and Geoff many times as so much was happening. All these make this an awesome book to read. I encourage you to grab a copy of this book to read and enjoy for yourself. I think you will find it interesting and intriguing. It is a book that will stay with you long after you finish its pages.

Much appreciated.
