About the Author:

Christine Lindsay writes historical inspirational novels with strong love stories, and she takes pride in her Irish roots. Her great grandfather and grandfather worked as riveters in the Belfast shipyard, one of those ships her ancestors helped build was the Titanic. On her mother’s side 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 Twilight of the British Raj series. 

The Pacific coast of Canada, about 200 miles north of Seattle, is Christine’s home where she lives with her husband, David, and they enjoy the visits from their adult children and grandchildren. Like a lot of authors, Christine’s chief editor is her cat.

About the Book

Prisoners to their own broken dreams…

After a daring rescue goes awry, the parched north of India grows too hot for nurse Laine Harkness and her friend Eshana. The women flee to the tropical south…and run headlong into their respective pasts.

Laine takes a new nursing position at a plantation in the jungle, only to discover that her former fianc√© is the owner…and that Adam has no more to say to her now than he did when he crushed her years ago. Why, then, is she still drawn to him, and to the tiger cub he is raising?

Eshana, captured by her traditional uncle and forced once more into the harsh Hindu customs of mourning, doubts whether freedom will ever again be in her future, much less the forbidden love that had begun to whisper to her. Is faith enough to live on? Or is her Savior calling her home?

Amid cyclones and epidemics, clashing faiths and consequences of the war, will the love of the True Master give hope to these searching hearts?

My Review

Firstly thanks to Christine for my review copy. 
I loved this book. As many know I haven't been reading as many books this year and it has taken me awhile to finish a book. This book may just be the book that has broken the dam. I read it in about 5 days and wanted more. The book flows so well that it is easy to read and get transported back to India in the early 1920 where there was a lot of turmoil in the country. The book mentions two of my favourite things, cricket which is synonymous with India and a tiger which is mentioned prowling around in the country side. This book features both Eshana who is now a christian who was rescued in the first book from the life of a hindu widow and Laine a British nurse born in India. We learn more about the caste system and how widows are treated. Seeing the friendship between Eshana and Laine is interesting as it is a close bond. Also we meet Adam, Laine's former fiance and learn why he called of the engagement. There is a lot of different things happening in the book which kept me turning pages. This is one of my top reads for the year and I believe this book is better than the first book. The only thing I didn't like about the book is that it ended. I could have kept reading however the ending I found very satisfying.
