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 glamor 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?
Lady Helen Finds Her Song
I really fell in love with this book! Helen was strong, courageous and straight forward in her opinions. I loved her zest for life and her view on experiencing a new culture; Calcutta came to life through her eyes! The Captain was the sweetest and most considerate hero I think I have read about to date. Honestly who wouldn't fall for this guy? Handsome, brave and completely selfless, Michael was quite the catch! The story plays out well and I sighed in contentment when it was over. That is so rare for me, usually I want more but Moore left me completely satisfied with the way it ended. Go buy this book, borrow it from the library, grab it from your friend...do something to get it in your hands! And start your own journey through Calcutta!
