As Erica tries to learn why the Sikh fanatics apparently want her and her nephew dead, she and the Prince are attracted to one another. However, they differ on religious beliefs, especially those impacting on Betul. Erica wants to raise the child as a Christian in deference to her sister's final wishes while Sajah wants his nephew raised as a Hindu. As the twosome diametrically disagree, they must find a common ground to keep Betul even as they fall in love with one another Lights Of The Veil is a fast-paced inspirational relationship drama that contains an underlying theme that belief in God is critical to overcome impossible obstacles. Although author Patty Metzer's basic dogma is vital to the plot, the story line provides the audience with a fast-paced action thriller that showcases India while providing insight into the Sikh and Hindu people.

I LOVE this book! I'm not a bigger reader, but I've read this book twice. I hope there is a sequel! I can't put this book down the moment I start reading it. My heart is racing from the moment I start reading it, wanting to know everything. I found myself daydreaming about the characters even while I wasn't reading, and praying for the characters even after I finished the book. This is a fabulous book for anyone and everyone!

This book is excellent. I read a lot of fiction, 5-7 novels a month. I was hooked after the first few pages. The drama, the angle that ties in romance, and the favorite of my books - God. The constant struggle some ensue remaining faithful to God and God always coming out the victor. It is an awesome book and I'm going out to buy any other books she has written!
