Shadowed in Silk by Christine Lindsay
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.

“Fast paced action for historical events”
Five Star Review on Amazon By Barbara
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.
