One of my favorite things about historical fiction is learning about places/eras/historical events I didn’t previously know much about. Such is the case with Christine Lindsey’s series Twilight of the British Raj, set in India in the years following the first World War. Captured by Moonlight, the second book in this series, is now available as an ebook, with the physical book releasing in May.
Both of Christine’s books take us into the world of India, introducing us not only to the different culture of the Indian people, but also to the British there, many of whom have lived in India longer than in England. It’s a fascinating mesh of cultures and religions, all shown through a story of mystery, intrigue, and, of course, romance. I loved how the fictional plot was woven into the historical setting, keeping me engaged in both. In fact, I enjoyed Captured by Moonlight so much (I read it a few months ago, before publication) that I provided this official endorsement:
The exotic but turbulent world of post WWI India comes to life in Captured by Moonlight. Deep with emotion and rich in faith, the story satisfies, entertains and enlightens. I loved both the British and the Indian characters as well as the feast of details that made me feel as if I’d traveled to India myself.
If you enjoy unusual settings and time periods, check out Christine’s books. At under $4 each for the kindle versions, they are a great deal!
