About the Author:

Christine Lindsay writes historical inspirational novels with strong love stories, and she takes pride in her Irish roots. Her great grandfather and grandfather worked as riveters in the Belfast shipyard, one of those ships her ancestors helped build was the Titanic. On her mother’s side it was stories of ancestors who served in the British Cavalry in India that seeded Christine’s long-time fascination with the British Raj and became the stimulus for her Twilight of the British Raj series.

The Pacific coast of Canada, about 200 miles north of Seattle, is Christine’s home where she lives with her husband, David, and they enjoy the visits from their adult children and grandchildren. Like a lot of authors, Christine’s chief editor is her cat.

About the Book

Prisoners to their own broken dreams…

After a daring rescue goes awry, the parched north of India grows too hot for nurse Laine Harkness and her friend Eshana. The women flee to the tropical south…and run headlong into their respective pasts.

Laine takes a new nursing position at a plantation in the jungle, only to discover that her former fiancé is the owner…and that Adam has no more to say to her now than he did when he crushed her years ago. Why, then, is she still drawn to him, and to the tiger cub he is raising?

Eshana, captured by her traditional uncle and forced once more into the harsh Hindu customs of mourning, doubts whether freedom will ever again be in her future, much less the forbidden love that had begun to whisper to her. Is faith enough to live on? Or is her Savior calling her home?

Amid cyclones and epidemics, clashing faiths and consequences of the war, will the love of the True Master give hope to these searching hearts?

Amanda’s Review

Captured by Moonlight indeed captured me. It was a wonderful experience to be able to slip into another culture and another time period and be caught up in an enthralling tale. I had trouble putting this novel down. From the descriptions of the landscape in India to the palpable tension between the characters, I was hooked.

Christine Lindsay gave me an insight into another time and other religions as I read, without feeling like I was being taught at all. I think that also, having missionaries in my present family and ancestry (in India a few generations back even), there is something that resonates with me in a story involving the work of missions.

This story also spoke a message to me in my current situation, and I love that sense of the Holy Spirit speaking to me through a work of fiction. I found myself encouraged and enriched without being preached at.

If you love a romance with lots of tension and an exotic setting, this book is for you. I look forward to reading more of Christine’s work in the future.

Thanks to the author and publisher for a free review copy.
