She was invisible to those who should have loved her.
After the Great War, Abby Fraser returns to India, 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 and a cruel father to their three-year-old son. 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. 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.
This book is written so well that I could see the scenes described in my mind. It was like watching a movie. This book is a love story as well as a fictional history of India. There is a glossery in the front of the book to help with the words but I was able to follow along with the story. I only used it about third times.
Abby Fraser has always felt she was of little importance to her father and her aunt. She was married to Nick and the war was over and she was going to meet him in India with their son Cam. When she got there Nick wasn’t but Geoff Richards was. He helped her and Cam. At the beginning Cam and Geoff formed an instant love and friendship was all Abby and Geoff had because Abby was married. But Nick wasn’t all he pretended to be and their marriage was just a marriage in name only. I felt Abby’s pain while reading her story. Geoff was a solider and he was hunting evil men who were stealing guns and causing riots in India. Yes this book is about evil but don’t let that stop you from reading this book because the war is just the background for the love story of Abby and Geoff and the love God has for each of us. I was disappointed when I got to the last sentence of this book because I wanted to keep reading about the characters in this story. I was happy to discovered there is a second book in the Twilight of the British Raj Series. So you can be sure I will be adding this book “Captivated By Moonlight to my Kindle library.
