Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

"For anyone who loves historical fiction set in India, be assured that Shadowed in Silk launches Christine Lindsay as a worthy successor to the great M.M. Kaye. This finicky reader of historical fiction finds only one flaw with Christine Lindsay's debut novel---I want more."

Laurie Alice Eakes, author of Lady in the Mist

"I was privileged to deliver the acceptance speech for Christine Lindsay when she won the Genesis Award at the ACFW Conference in 2009. After reading Shadowed in Silk, I can see why the novel won. Lindsay is a skilled writer who moves the story effortlessly along while weaving character descriptions seamlessly into the action. The time period and setting was one with which I was unfamiliar but Lindsay drew me in and I could almost feel the desert sand on  my face. I look forward to more from this new author.

More About the Author

Christine Lindsay's latest release is VEILED AT MIDNIGHT the explosive and passionate finale to the trilogy Twilight of the British Raj. Christine writes Christian novels with strong spiritual themes that go beyond romance, such as big love stories that encompass entire families. Life isn't easy, and Christine wants to encourage readers at the same time as giving them riveting, entertaining novels such as her multi-award-winning SHADOWED IN SILK and book 2 of that series CAPTURED BY MOONLIGHT which is set in India during a turbulent era. Christine's long-time fascination with the British Raj was seeded from stories of her Irish ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in Colonial India.

Christine's first dabble into a romance novel is her LONDONDERRY DREAMING of the Passport to Romance line with Pelican Books, inspired by the fact that she was born in N. Ireland not far from the city of Londonderry. This romance touches on the spiritual theme of learning to speak words of love--a difficult learning arc for an artist and a music therapist who speak mostly through paint and music.

Later in 2015 Christine's novel SOFI'S BRIDGE will be released through Pelican Book Group.

Christine is currently writing her non-fiction book about the relinquishment of her first child to adoption in 1979, and about their painful reunion in 1999, and to the relationship they share today based on their mutual love of the Lord Jesus Christ. This book will be published by WhiteFire Publishing November 2015.

Adding to Christine's Irish pride is the fact that her great-grandfather and her grandfather both worked as riveters in the Belfast shipyard and one of the ships they built was the Titanic.

The Pacific coast of Canada is Christine's home, and like a lot of writers, her cat is her chief editor.

Shadowed in Silk will keep you up long past your bedtime--each time you want to put it down, you tell yourself, just one more page, just one more page...
Lindsay has written of two characters, Major Geoff Richards and Abby Fraser, who grab you from the beginning and don't let go until the last page. They are in an impossible situation which only gets more difficult, but the reader roots for them from the moment they meet on board a ship bound for India, he to take up his old post after surviving the horrors of World War I and she to return to her childhood home.
You'll fall in love with Geoff--the strong, silent hero with a tragic past, who proves to be a wonderful surrogate father to Abby's young son, and a quiet protector to Abby when she is faced by more danger than she knows.
And you'll feel for Abby, trying to do what's right when her life seems to have ended before it has a chance to begin and coming finally to that place of acknowledging that she can't do it on her own.
There's a wonderful set of secondary characters, especially those Indian Christians who endure the loss of everything for their newfound faith.
The Indian backdrop with its sights, smells and sounds and the increasing turmoil under the British raj only add to the allure of this story. For those who love The Far Pavilions and The Jewel in the Crown, with the addition of a strong Christian theme and a wonderful romance, this book is for you!

Christine Lindsay takes us away to exotic, far away India in the early 1900s, a land of turbans and sari's, spicy foods, fragant flowers, and silk! However, it is also a land of great political and religious unrest under the regime of the British Raj. Abby Frazer has not seen her husband in four years, and she excitedly returns to India to be reunited with him, along with their little son, Cam, whom Nick has never seen. Abby is surprised when she descends from the ship, to find that Nick isn't even there, and she must travel three days alone by train, if not for the kindness of Major Geoff Edwards, a man she met on board ship.

Geoff Richards still suffers the horrors of war, and the loss of not only many of his comrades, but his lovely wife and child as well. Feeling sympathy for Abby, and a great affection towards Cam, he escorts them to their new home and promises the boy he will return to see him. However, something is terribly amiss when Abby arrives and the servant puts her bags in a guestroom and she smells a jasmine scent coming from Nick's room. Who is the lovely, Tikah, who mysteriously flits about the house, and why does she seem to hate Abby? As time goes on, Abby realizes that Nick is very abusive, but still does her best to salvage her marriage.

Soon bedlam breaks out and many are killed and wounded, and in her loneliness and feelings of rejection, Abby does something very foolish to endanger her son's life. Will the God that Geoff believes in hear her prayers and save Cam before it is too late? Will Geoff be able to stifle his feelings towards Abby; an abused, but married woman, and also find healing for his own troubled soul? And who is the traitor among them who is a wolf in sheep's clothing?

I was hooked from page one and literally burned the midnight oil reading this one, something I haven't done in a long while! This novel was filled with excitement, romance, and non-stop action! Fabulous job, Christine Lindsay!

"Shadowed in Silk" is a wonderfully written novel that transports the reader to India after World War I. As I was reading it, I was thoroughly engrossed in the novel, so much so I could not put my Kindle down. We start as Abby Fraser is on her way with her son, Cam, to meet up with Cam's father and Abby's husband, Nick. Abby and Nick were only together for a small handful of days after their marriage, and Abby is looking forward to starting a life together with her husband and son all together as a family. Cam, her son, has made friends with Major Geoff Richards, on the train on the way to meet his father. When they arrive at the station, Nick is nowhere to be found, and there begins the weaving and intersecting together of Abby, Cam and Geoff. As the novel progresses, Geoff becomes not just a friend but a protector to both Abby and Cam.

The Christian elements of the storyline are expertly woven in without preaching to the reader. Not only do you see Abby come to faith in Christ, but you get a beautiful glimpse of Christian life in India in that time period.

The novel truly transports you right to India, and I found myself feeling as if I was really watching and listening to the events, rather than just reading a book. The story is thoroughly engrossing, so be prepared to have plenty of time because you probably will not be able to put it down.

I received a complimentary copy of this book in order to review it.

Format: Paperback
I really enjoyed this story. I loved to read Kim by Rudyard Kipling and this was reminiscent of that story only later in time. The story takes place in India right after WW1. Abby arrives in India on one of the troop ships with her 4 year old son to live with her husband. They were married at the beginning of the war and he was immediately posted to India. The story is about a young girl learning that the man she is married to isn't really the man she thought he was. She also finds that the India she has returned to is different from the one of her youth and the British women are very cut off from and scorn those around them. The book covers the time of the riots in Amritsar and the beginning of Ghandhi's peace revolution. Inadvertently Abby becomes involved with the political mechanisms of the Russian spy, Indian, and British military government in Amritsar all the while being torn apart by her husband's inattention and falling for Major Richards who is Christian and would never allow himself to become involved with a married woman. There was lots of tension and mystery in this fast moving story that held my attention throughout.
Special thanks to Christine Lindsay for sending me a review copy. I was not obligated in any way to give a good review, these thoughts are my own opinion.
