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 glamour 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'm so happy to be a part of this tour. Jennifer Moore is a favorite of mine and I just gobble her books right up.
This book is a regency, but set in India so you get a completely different feel than most typical regency novels. I loved seeing India through Helen's eyes. She was so excited for a new adventure and took in every sound, smell and sight with new eyes willing to know and understand this rich new culture. It was not the typical English response which put Lady Helen a bit on the outs of her social circle.
Lady Helen is a character that is so easy to like. I loved her gentle and kind nature. She was adventurous and courageous. Lady Helen and Captain Michael were the perfect match. Their growing friendship and love was just perfect.
I loved how this book gently enveloped me. It was easy to settle in with and it left me feeling happy and content. So, so good.
