Shadowed In Silk by Christine Lindsay is being released in 2 stages—first as an eBook in the summer of 2011, and as a printed book in the latter part of 2011.
All Abby Fraser ever wanted was to be noticed by those who were supposed to love her. But still, she felt invisible.
At the end of WWI she reunites with Nick, her British officer husband in India, and finds herself trapped in a marriage to a cruel stranger. She also finds protection, and truths she never expected to hear from Eshana, a former Hindu and child widow.
Major Geoff Richards, broken over losing so many of his men in the slaughter of the war, returns to his cavalry post. He remains true to his faith in Christ, but no longer believes joy can be found in this life. And back in India he cannot accept the inequality of his British peers toward Indian people, especially the callousness of the typical English memsahib. He also can’t stomach the way Nick Fraser bullies his wife and little son.
Love for Abby…and joy for Geoff…seem impossible set against India’s canvas of glittering palaces, veiled women, dust, heat and poverty. As tensions rise in the Indian bazaars, the British retaliate, ushering in the very thing they fear—the beginning of the end of the 300-year-old British Raj, and setting the stage for Gandhi.
Playing a part in that grander scheme, sinister enemies—in the guise of friends and servants, and England’s political enemy, Russia—draw Geoff, Abby and Cam, Eshana, and Nick out under the brassy sky of an inhospitable, Afghanistan desert.
It is there, when all seems lost, that love and joy are found as God promised to those who love and obey Him—joy in the land of the living.
