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.

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!

This book was so wonderful and emotionally involving that it took me away from what I should have been doing. I pushed aside everything and kept reading. My attention was riveted to this absolutely beautifully-written novel which brings to the forefront so many themes of love, loyalty, longing, hate, prejudice, and how God is sovereign in the midst of tragedy and triumph. Ms. Lindsay gives us a strong, haunted but loyal and stalwart hero in Geoff, and my heart broke for the kind-hearted heroine, Abby, even as I glimpsed her strong inner strength. I literally cheered out loud when she began to assert her will and stand up against those who sought to hurt her and her son. You will laugh, you will cry, you will smile and you will ultimately be deeply touched by these characters and their story. It's a heartfelt story I won't forget, and I am giving it my highest recommendation.

Great book! Not only a love story, but it is filled with suspense, and events leading to an uprising in India.
A young woman and her son travel to India to be with her husband who is a British officer. Upon arriving things are just not what Abby expected. Her husband, Nick, is nowhere to be seen. Another officer, Geoff, sees her and comes to assist her and Cam, her son.
The story takes place during the year of 1918 in India where a strict social structure exists. Just to touch someone can cause that person to become polluted, even the shadow of a lower caste person.
Abby wants a good marriage and was so sure that Nick would be happy to finally have her with him. At last, they could become a real family.
There is a mission for children. One worker shared with Abby why she became a Christian converting from Hinduism.
History comes alive and you catch yourself choosing sides. The author has used a wonderful story to bring turbulent times in focus.
Beware! Once you get into the book, you might burn the midnight oil.
