Release Date: April 1, 2016
The exotic splendors of India are legendary, and the colorful sights of her new home in Calcutta immediately captivate eighteen-year-old Lady Helen Poulter. Whereas many of her fellow British expatriates despise the culture they see as barbaric, Helen sees excitement in the unusual locale. It is in this vibrant, bustling city that she finds a kindred soul in Captain Michael Rhodes, an Englishman whose lifelong love of India runs deep. Their friendship quickly grows, yet despite their undeniable connection, she could never think of Captain Rhodes as more than a dear friend.
Her love, in truth, has been captured by dashing British Lieutenant Arthur Bancroft. This handsome soldier represents the embodiment of all she’s dreamed of in a husband. Preoccupied by her growing affections, Helen never dreams that beneath the glamor of the city, hostilities are reaching a boiling point. When battle ultimately threatens both of the men in her life, she must make a choice: pursue the man who symbolizes her British past, or let herself love a man who promises an unknown future in the land she loves. But amid the casualties of war, will her declaration of love come too late?
I love, love, love, how Jennifer Moore lets us see different parts of the world while writing about the Regency era. This story shows us the breathtaking sites of India. It’s very diverse culture is highlighted. Lady Helen is awestruck by the sights and sounds of India as she explores her new home. She is young and naive and often doesn’t understand her own feelings. The men of the British military that surround her are protective and sometimes confusing to her. She is an accomplished pianist and uses the music to sooth her soul and those around her. The adventure and depth of the feelings portrayed in this story kept me turning the pages until late into the night!
Rating: 5 stars – I love it!!!
