Shadowed In Silk by Christine Lindsay

This week, the
Christian Fiction Blog Alliance
is introducing
Shadowed In Silk
WhiteFire Publishing (September 1, 2011)
Christine Lindsay


Christine Lindsay writes historical Christian inspirational novels with strong love stories. She doesn’t shy away from difficult subjects such as the themes in her debut novel SHADOWED IN SILK which is set in India during a turbulent era. Christine’s long-time fascination with the British Raj was seeded from stories of her ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in India. SHADOWED IN SILK was the Gold winner of the 2009 ACFW Genesis for Historical.

The Pacific coast of Canada, about 200 miles north of Seattle, is Christine’s home. It’s a special time in her life as she and her husband enjoy the empty nest, but also the noise and fun when the kids and grandkids come home. Like a lot of writers, her cat is her chief editor.


She was invisible to those who should have loved her.

After the Great War, Abby Fraser returns to India with her small son, where her husband is stationed with the British army. She has longed to go home to the land of glittering palaces and veiled women...but Nick has become a cruel stranger. It will take more than her American pluck to survive.

Major Geoff Richards, broken over the loss of so many of his men in the trenches of France, returns to his cavalry post in Amritsar. But his faith does little to help him understand the ruthlessness of his British peers toward the Indian people he loves. Nor does it explain how he is to protect Abby Fraser and her child from the husband who mistreats them.

Amid political unrest, inhospitable deserts, and Russian spies, tensions rise in India as the people cry for the freedom espoused by Gandhi. Caught between their own ideals and duty, Geoff and Abby stumble into sinister secrets . . . secrets that will thrust them out of the shadows and straight into the fire of revolution.

My Thoughts:

This book I am holding especially close:)
Not only is it a terrific read, but there is a personal connection to it for me.
A few weeks ago I had just returned home from a run in our gorgeous trails and my doorbell went. I figured it was the mailman bringing me more books, but it wasn't. It was the lovely author of Shadowed in Silk!! To my utter surprise Christine Lindsay lives in my very own town! What an amazing life she has had thus far and a true gift of story telling. I was so blessed to have met her face to face for such a short moment. A touching lady. A touching story.
Her book is wonderfully captivating. The characters are fully developed and rich.
She leaves me wanting more, that is for certain.

Hi Lori. It was a real joy and surprise to me too, to see that one of the reviewers for Christian Fiction On-line magazine lived in my very own town. :o) It was such a pleasure to meet you, and I hope we run into each other often.

I will be speaking at Sardis Fellowship Church on Wells Rd. on Dec. 5, between 7 and 9:15 pm.

I'll be tying in the wonder of Christmas with the wonder that God has done in my life in regards to my birthmother story. Hope to see you and some friends there. Tickets can be bought at the church for $7. And I will be selling books there that evening as well.

If anyone wants to come, call the church at 604-858-8433
