    Christine Lindsay has crafted a wonderful epic romance with tons of action that kept me turning pages I don t usually read romance, but this was that in the classic sense of the word, and it grabbed hold of me and kept me turning pages What an exotic period The novel delves into ethnic and religious prejudices, political intrigue, love hate, gun running, and a Russian spy thrown into the mix.

    Played out against the backdrop of Ghandi s India, this novel has all the exotic elegance you would expect The setting itself comes to life, as the author weaves a beautiful tale of romance, heartache, and intrigue.This book spares none of the gritty details as Abby Fraser deals with an abusive and neglectful husband Geoff Richards must watch at a distance, doing what little he can to protect Abby and her son Cam, while Geoff and Abby both struggle with feelings that can not be fulfilled In t Played out against the backdrop of Ghandi s India, this novel has all the exotic elegance you would expect The setting itself comes to life, as the author weaves a beautiful tale of romance, heartache, and intrigue.This book spares none of the gritty details as Abby Fraser deals with an abusive and neglectful husband Geoff Richards must watch at a distance, doing what little he can to protect Abby and her son Cam, while Geoff and Abby both struggle with feelings that can not be fulfilled In the meantime, war is brewing and treachery surrounds them.Perhaps my favorite aspect of the book was a very real and vibrant spirituality presented through the Indian characters Their culture gave them new words and appreciation to express truths Christians often take for granted Shadowed in Silk is a sweeping saga against a gorgeous panorama with elements that will change your life I give it my highest recommendation
